McGraw placed on vocal rest, cancels shows

Monday, September 21, 2015 – The Tim McGraw Shotgun Rider were canceled on Friday and Saturday due to the singer being placed on vocal rest.

McGraw was slated to play on Sept. 18 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Cal. and Sept. 19 at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater in Irvine, Cal.

"This is so disappointing to me," McGraw said on his web site. " We've had such a great summer, and I was looking forward to this final weekend with the fans in California. I appreciate the support and look forward to coming back soon. The word 'can't' is just not in my DNA, if there was any way I could sing, I would do it."

All tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.

McGraw's next tour date is Oct. 4 in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Festival.

CD reviews for Tim McGraw

Damn Country Music 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. »»»
Sundown Heaven Town 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. »»»
Two Lanes of Freedom CD review - Two Lanes of Freedom
Tim McGraw's debut on Big Machine, "Two Lanes Of Freedom" is his first record since the announcement that he gave up alcohol five years ago and the first since his acrimonious, litigious split from the only label he had ever known, Curb. The new CD literally and symbolically represents a fresh start. If only the material better reflected his new take on life. What is presented here is about as boiler plate as contemporary country gets. The album is a safe play and takes almost no chances. »»»
