Tim McGraw has a ball at World Series

Thursday, October 23, 2008 – Tim McGraw will deliver the game ball to the pitcher's mound with a local member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the official charity of Major League Baseball at the third game of the World Series on Saturday, Oct. 25 in Philadelphia.

McGraw was invited to do the honor by the Phillies and baseball as a symbolic gesture to honor his late father Tug McGraw, who pitched the Phillies to a World Series win in 1980 and was the last pitcher to close a Series win for the team.

McGraw is in New York this week to promote his new children's book with Thomas Nelson Publishing, "My Little Girl," which hit stores Tuesday

CD reviews for Tim McGraw

CD review - Here on Earth Tim McGraw's collection, "Here on Earth," finds the country star sounding peaceful and down to Earth. He's more meditative than overly active, throughout. It's very much an adult album in that McGraw is speaking from the perspective of maturity, rather than pretending he's still a young man.

CD review - Damn Country Music Tim McGraw said of his 14th studio album, "Damn Country Music," "It's is all about passion, (taking him back to 1989) "when I came to Nashville to chase my dreams." Country music has richly rewarded him over the past two decades, and he honors the genre's tradition here. The album gets off to a very traditional start with Celtic folk. The flute and skillful acoustic picking on the opener "Here Tonight" bring a Mark Knopfler tune immediately to mind. ...
CD review - Sundown Heaven Town The banjo comes first out of the speakers, the opening strains of "Overrated," the lead-off song on Tim McGraw's latest. But with a "1-2-3-4" count, the mood changes and goes for a more modern country approach. McGraw does about the same on the follow-up "City Lights" with Michael Landau's steely, but rocking lead guitar taking over near the conclusion as it does later hard on "Sick of Me" where the protagonist contemplates a need to turn his life around. ...
