– Tim McGraw's third TV special, "Tim McGraw: Reflected" will air Wednesday, April 5 at 8 p.m. eastern on NBC just days after his greatest hits album is released. The show will feature a concert in New York City and performances from his farm in Nashville, duets with wife Faith Hill.
In New York City, McGraw appeared at The Avalon. The special also shows McGraw up-close and personal on his Nashville farm. Hank Williams Jr. joins him for a jam session, plus an orchestra for his rendition of "My Little Girl" - the title track of his upcoming feature film "Flicka" - his long-time band the Dancehall Doctors, and wife and Faith Hill as the couple sing to each other in front of their fireplace.
This morning, McGraw visited WSIX DJ Gerry House. McGraw brought along two songs from the upcoming greatest hits package, "When The Stars Go Blue" and "I've Got Friends That Do."
"I've Got Friends That Do" is the first song McGraw has recorded that he is a co-writer on - it's a song written with Brett and Brad Warren and Brett Beavers.
"These are two of the new songs I recorded for the hits album," says McGraw. "I've recorded five new songs and we are waiting to see how many my label will put on there - I'm hoping they put them all on the album for the fans."
"When The Stars Go Blue" is written by Ryan Adams.
"Usually we have a single 6 or 8 weeks in front of a new album, so I just thought it would be different to send out two records and see what happens over the next month, says McGraw. "This gives the fans a say in which one should be the single - or maybe both."
McGraw will release a greatest hits package March 28. He also has his spring-summer "Soul 2 Soul II" tour with wife Hill begins April 21 and will include 70-plus cities, plus his upcoming Fox film "Flicka" is currently scheduled to be in theaters on July 28.
