Tim McGraw Recalls a “Turning Point” Christmas in His Life

People remember Christmases in their life for various reasons, but if you ask Tim McGraw to tell you about his most memorable, he’ll probably share one from when he was around 11-years old.

It was that Christmas that Tim lists as a “turning point” in his life…it was the year his mom gave him a little more responsibility.

Tim explains, “I think one thing that I remember as a kid that was sort of a turning point for me growing up for me is, I grew up with my mom and my two sisters.  I remember being, I don’t know, probably 11 years old or so and my mom asking me to put together a doll house for my sisters.  And that was the first time that I actually got to participate and, like, be the man of the house with my mom and put together all the Christmas stuff for my sisters.  And that was sort of a big graduating to a  young man, in my eyes, thing for me.”

While he’s probably not going to build any doll houses this year, both Tim and Faith Hill are very happy to have their 3 daughters all under the same roof, as this year is Tim and Faith’s first as “empty nesters” since their youngest daughter is now in college.

To celebrate everyone being home, Tim got the biggest Christmas tree ever! He shared pictures of the decorating process on social media…

 

Rockefeller Center called and said they want their tree back.

Between welcoming daughters home and decorating the tree, Tim also had time to give his fans a little present, and a thank you for all they did for him in 2020, by releasing his version of “It Wasn’t His Child.”

Check out his performance of the song from this year’s CMA Country Christmas special.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
