Tim McGraw Stays Out of the Kitchen On Turkey Day

Tim McGraw Stays Out of the Kitchen On Turkey Day

Tim McGraw is a good cook. In fact, while he was dating Faith Hill, he would woo her with his homemade chicken and dumplings. He’s also proud to say that he makes a “pretty dang good country fried steak.” But when it comes to Thanksgiving, Tim will pass on the cooking “Faith does all the cooking for Thanksgiving.” So, what does the menu look like at the McGraw house on Thanksgiving…”We have to have turkey, we have to have our stuffing and we have to have cornbread and peas, of course.”

While Tim is passing on the cooking next week, he is stepping up on the music side of things this week, Friday, November 20, he’ll be releasing a new compilation album, McGraw Machine Hits: 2013-2019. 

“Every now and then you want to go back and hear a collection of songs exactly like you remember them,” says Tim. “Even to go re-record doesn’t feel right because there’s something magical about what happened there when it happened.”

The 14-song collection features past tunes “How I’ll Always Be,” “Humble and Kind,” “Truck Yeah” and more, as well as a brand-new version of “Redneck Girl” featuring Midland, which you can check out right here…

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
