In contrast to his adult success as a recording star, performer and long-time family man, McGraw’s childhood was difficult.
A Singing Childhood
When the singer was born in Louisiana in 1997, McGraw wasn’t his last name. Tim’s 18-year-old mother had married truck driver Horace Smith before her son was born.
Tim’s birth father was actually a minor league baseball player with whom his mom shared a brief summer romance before he joined the New York Mets.
McGraw’s love of country music developed as he listened to the radio and sang along while on the road with his trucking dad. Fortunately, the singing didn’t stop when McGraw's life turned upside down at age 9 due to the Smiths’ divorce.
Single parenthood created instability for Tim and his mom as they stayed one step ahead of homelessness. During this time Tim discovered that his birth father was famous relief pitcher Tug McGraw.
Live Like You Were Dying
Country music is well known for its ballads about heartache, difficulties and rejection. As a teen, McGraw knew trouble and rejection all too well. Food was scarce and so was fatherly affection. Tug wouldn’t acknowledge McGraw as his son or answer his letters.
Eventually, Tug developed a friendly relationship with his son and helped him financially when McGraw dropped out of college to become a musician. But it took years, a happy marriage and parenthood to mellow McGraw’s anger over the earlier rejection.
In 2004, as Tug McGraw battled terminal cancer, McGraw released his famous song “Live Like You Were Dying” to honor him. The song, a favorite for concertgoers who buy Tim McGraw tour tickets, concerns living life to the fullest following a scary medical diagnosis.
Spontaneous Combustion of Love
McGraw fell in love with country music star Faith Hill in 1995 during their Spontaneous Combustion Tour. With Hill and his three daughters, McGraw has built the stability he lacked as a child.
In recent years, McGraw and Hill have spread their love and prosperity through their Neighbor’s Keeper Foundation, which funds projects aiding children, veterans and victims of natural disasters, such as the 2010 Tennessee floods .
