Tim McGraw considering another movie?
Wednesday, November 19, 2008
– With his new movie not quite open, Tim McGraw is looking ahead to another possible movie project about a man in east Tennessee who faked his own death with the help of the town and a funeral parlor.
McGraw is in "The Four Christmases," which opens next week with Dwight Yoakam, Reese Witherspoon, Vince Vaughn and Robert Duvall.
In an interview with the radio show GAC Nights: Live From Nashville, McGraw said, "There's a movie we're talking about it. It's not gotten to the pre-production part, but it's certainly a thing we've talked about for a year now that's based on a true story, and I believe over in east Tennessee, about a man, an older gentleman. He and the town and the funeral parlor kind of faked his death to kind of have a party in the town. And it's a pretty interesting movie."

CD reviews for Tim McGraw
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.

McGraw burns through five mellow tracks before he gets to anything with a discernable beat. ...
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. ...
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. ...
