Full Name: Samuel Timothy “Tim” McGraw

Born: May 1st, 1967

Hometown: Richland Parish, Louisiana

Bio: Tim McGraw started his music career by coming to Nashville in 1989. He was in college at the time, but decided to drop and move on behalf of Keith Whitley’s passing that year. McGraw has had a massive career as a Country Artist, with 10 out of his 14 studio albums released thus far reaching number 1 on the Country Charts. His career started when he signed with Curb Records in 1990, but his first self-titled album was lack-luster with sales.

When he released his second album “Not a Moment Too Soon” which featured “Indian Outlaw,” things changed pretty quickly. This song was controversial with critics saying it portrayed Native Americans wrongly, however this helped sky rocket sales with its headlines. It was later claimed as best-selling album in the Country Genre for 1994. Tim’s second single “Don’t Take the Girl” was also his first number 1 on the same album. This paved the way for his three decade career with chart toppers on every album since. See full album list below:
