Tim McGraw & Luke Bryan Open The Concert Season At Aaron’s Amphitheatre Saturday Night

Country superstar Tim McGraw brought his Emotional Traffic Tour to the nearly sold out Aaron’s Amphitheare Saturday night, along with special guests Luke Bryan and The Band Perry.

Samuel Timothy “Tim” McGraw was born in Delhi, Louisiana on May 1, 1967. Many of McGraw’s albums and singles have topped the country music charts, leading him to achieve total album sales in excess of 40 million units. He is married to country singer Faith Hill and is the son of former baseball player Tug McGraw. McGraw had 11 consecutive albums debut at Number One on the Billboard albums charts. Twenty-one singles hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country 100 chart. Three singles became the No. 1 country song of the year (”It’s Your Love”, “Just To See You Smile”, and “Live Like You Were Dying”). He has won 3 Grammys, 14 Academy of Country Music awards, 11 Country Music Association (CMA) awards, 10 American Music Awards, and 3 People’s Choice Awards. His Soul2Soul II Tour with Faith Hill is the highest grossing tour in country music history, and one of the top five among all genres of music. McGraw has ventured into acting, with supporting roles in The Blind Side (with Sandra Bullock), Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom, and Four Christmases (with Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon), and lead roles in Flicka (2006) and Country Strong (2010).
