Tim Mcgraw Tickets
 by: Ron Arthur

They were destined to be together and famous. A proud Mississippi, breath-taking beauty “Audrey Faith Perry Hill” mostly known as “Faith Hill” and seductive cutie-pie countryside cowboy singer/actor hubby “Samuel Timothy McGraw” famous as “Tim Mcgraw” together make an incredible couple. They both are in love, married, parents of three beautiful girls, famous, too good to be true. But that is true. These two countryside folks came out of nowhere and sparkle on the sky of music, and almost outshine everyone. Their journey to success seems to spur with every song they sing. It’s not only about theirs professional lives they are also able to maintain marvelous equilibrium between the showbiz life and family life. Which no doubt gives them immense inner satisfaction that is otherwise lacking in most other professionals’ life, which fail them at least on one front of life. But this is not the case with Tim and Hill. They are victorious in family life and in showbiz, which provi de them a lightless in their life. And this solace is reflected in their songs and music. Their strong belief in family life also strengthens them emotionally and this power works like a catalyst for their music. Maybe their own family background compels them to cling for deep-rooted family ties. Whatever the reason maybe but it really worked well for both Hill and Tim.

When we think of country music, a traditional sort of music comes in our mind consisting on sad songs with stereotype tangy accents. But for sure Tim Mcgraw alone stand and proved it wrong. He actually gave a new dimension to country music. And nothing less can be said about Hill. Tim and Hill are very much alike in many aspects. Their backgrounds as well as their professional growth echo each other’s life. McGraw's parents never married. His mother raised him; he didn't learn who his father was till the age of 11. He took his biological father's surname at the age of 18 years. In the same way unfortunately Faith Hill was also not raised by her parents. Her mother gave her up for adoption after her birth, she was afraid to tell her family that she was pregnant out of wedlock at such an early age. Maybe these stark realities of life determine Tim and Hill to not let their stardom to hinder with their home. Hill started searching for her mother in the early '90s when she moved to Nashville to pursue music. Tim also came to Nashville having big dreams in his eyes.

Like any other struggling artist Hill also did a couple of odd jobs and finally her first break-through comes in 1993. She was working in the office of Starstruck Entertainment, Reba McEntire's talent management company. One night Hill sang at a famous Nashville club. A talent scout in the audience saw some potential in her and signed her up. Hill's break came in 1993. "Wild One," her first single mounted to the top of the country chart and stayed there a month. Since Connie Smith in 1964, she was the first debut singer who accomplished this. Her first album, "Take Me As I Am," was a major hit too; it sold a couple of million copies. Her first album earned her 1993's New Female Vocalist award from the Academy of Country Music. Hill’s second album "It Matters To Me," which came out in 1995 did even better at the cash register.

On the other hand, McGraw didn't initiate pursuing music until college, when he bought his first guitar and taught himself to play it. He dropped out of school in 1989 and headed to Nashville. His father tried to talk him out of going, but he argued that Tug himself had also quit college to follow his dreams in baseball. At that point his father agreed to help him out. McGraw launched his first debut album in 1992, which wasn’t a great hit. Though his second Album had three singles, including "Don't Take The Girl," all went to No. 1 and a unique, novel tune called "Indian Outlaw" became an immediate hit. This was the first step towards the dazzling path of success.

Later after the year of Hill’s second hit album in 1996, Hill met McGraw when they played 140 dates together. They got married on that very October 6 in 1996, and then Hill took 18 months off to start a family and relive her life anew. About this she says: "I'm married to my best friend. I have a wonderful husband, who I'm madly in love with, and I have two beautiful little girls that have made life everything, besides music, I want it all." And no doubt they both are blessed with fame and the homely comfort at the same time, of course the credit goes to both of them. Then she resumed her music career in 1998 with huge success of “Faith”. It seemed like she poured out her soul in this album even more than ever. She undergoes a matured transformation during this period; she no more gives an image of “country girl” and even admits it. Hill says: "I'm through with what I call the little-girl-going-away-from- home theme in my songs, it's time for me to express myself differently." And the listeners felt the striking difference in the next up-coming album that includes a mixture of countryside music along with other styles.

Just in tiny winy period of six years, Faith Hill has sold more than 11 million records, harvested eight No. 1 singles and ten No. 1 videos. Only this year, she received incalculable nominations and statues from the Country Music Association, the Grammy Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards, Blockbuster Awards and TNN Music City News Awards. She celebrated the colossal crossover success of her first platinum single, "This Kiss," which culminates with her appearance on the 1999 VH1 Divas Live, where she was sharing the same stage with Tina Turner, Cher and Whitney Houston. She was also named the newest face for CoverGirl Cosmetics and charmed the cover of several magazines like Country Weekly, People, TV Guide and Glamour.

Moreover, Tim’s song "Live Like You Were Dying" in 2004 and 2005 has collected every award it was nominated for- CMA & ACM Single and Song of the Year and also Country Song of the Year at the Grammy's. On the whole, Tim's achievements are as remarkable as they are numerous: 9 albums spawning 25 #1 singles and selling 33 million copies, tours that consistently rank near the top in financial and entertainment terms, a number of awards including a 2001 CMA Entertainer of the Year nod, 2 Grammy's and the 2004 People's Choice Award for Favorite Male Musical Performer. He is one of only three men ever to grace the cover of Redbook, his NBC Live Concert Special in 2002 soared higher than specials by U2 and Paul McCartney, he was the headline act at the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize Concert, and in November 2004 made a astral major motion picture acting debut with a role in the Universal/Imagine film "Friday Night Lights" with Billy Bob Thornton. His second NBC Concert Special aired Thanksgiving Eve 2004 winning the night for the network. In 2005 he was adorned with Grammy for Country Album of the Year for “Live Like You Were Dying” and song nominations, his duet with Nelly, "Over and Over," has stayed on the top on Urban charts for 12 weeks. McGraw carries on his celebrity cabinet board membership with the American Red Cross in 2005.

Many artists have achieved great permanence or marvelous levels of success, but Tim's career has indeed been remarkable for the way in which fame and success have been intertwined for so long. Tim's decision to reinvent a major share of his career, merging road and studio into a flawless whole, really paid off. Isn’t it impressive? This is not the end; it is just a beautiful and graceful pace of a magnificent highly talented couple towards a glorious tomorrow. Well they are dignified on individual levels but together too they have several hit duets on their credit. And a fascinating event that is the tour Soul 2 Soul, which they did in 2000 and now once again this historical event is going to be held in 2007 coming April. Those who couldn’t get a chance to experience the last spectacular tour can enthrall themselves this time. Get ready for the magic that’ll leave you breathless by Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill.
