Tim McGraw has announced that he just started a new music, movie, and TV production company called “Down Home.” Tim posted a video clip about his new company on Instagram, saying, in part, that it will help people get back to a sense of community through storytelling.
McGraw captioned the video clip, “It’s been hard to keep this one a secret for so long! Storytelling has always been one of my biggest passions, and I’m ready to take that same passion and apply it to something even bigger. I can’t reveal too much just yet, but I can promise you that this company is going to be something special. We’re going to be shaking things up, breaking new ground, and bringing people together in a whole new way. And after years of work behind the scenes, I am beyond thrilled to officially announce the launch of Down Home, a new media production company with @skydance, @shareability, and @emco615.”
He added, “Follow @downhome to be the first to hear about our upcoming TV and film projects, new content initiatives for fans, artists, and brands, and the growth of our Nashville studios. Can’t wait to unravel the incredible, untold stories with such a talented team!”

The official website for Down Home says, “Founded by Tim McGraw and some of his friends, Down Home is a new entertainment, media, and marketing company headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee. We are dedicated to telling relatable stories that capture the essence and spirit of everyday Americans.”
McGraw recently talked to us about his three adult daughters, two of whom are pursuing careers in the entertainment business. Tim’s music career spans over 30 years, and he made his acting debut on The Jeff Foxworthy Show over 25 years ago. He and his wife Faith Hill, who also acts, have some advice for their daughters.
McGraw told us, “Audrey’s an actor, Gracie’s an actor/singer. She’s working on auditions for Broadway. And all we can tell them is, ‘Look, you’re gonna get a lot of no’s in this business. This business is more no’s than it is yes, but you try to learn from every audition you have, every door that’s shut. You try to learn from it, and you just try to persevere and try to gain experience from it.”
