Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Take Manhattan For the Premiere of “The Shack”

New York City’s Museum of Modern Art was getting countrified Tuesday night (Feb.28) when Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Dan+Shay, Lori McKenna and songwriter Shane McAnally hit the red carpet for the world premiere of “The Shack.”

The movie, based on the New York Times best-selling book of the same name, stars Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer and Tim McGraw and will open in theaters nationwide on Friday, March 3.

But it’s the film’s soundtrack, released on Feb. 24, that features songs by country’s elite, including Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, who co-penned “Keep Your Eyes On Me,” with Lori McKenna and Shane McAnally, Dierks Bentley (“Days of Dark”), Lady Antebellum (“Lay Our Flowers Down”), Brett Eldredge (“Phone Call to God”), Dan + Shay (“When I Pray for You”) and more.

The stars dined on French food during the Lionsgate Hosts the World Premiere of The Shack after party held at Gabriel Kreuther restaurant, located opposite Bryant Park in New York City.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
