Tim McGraw Compares Live Shows To High School Football

If you’ve ever played organized sports, then you know how Tim McGraw feels right before going on stage.

“I always compare it to being an athlete in high school, in the locker room before a game. I don’t get nervous. [I] really excited and just full of energy and adrenaline. To me it’s like game day. I get pretty jacked up for it.”

The only time he gets anxious is when he performs on TV, especially on awards shows.

“Now that’s a whole different story. That makes you really nervous, and that’s when I really have to gather myself.”

Tim also gets annoyed when one of his shows is delayed for some reason.

“When we have a show and something’s delaying it, it drives me crazy. I want to get going [and] get ready to hit it.”

In case you didn’t see this. Tim posted a brief clip last week of himself and singer Brandon Davis doing a virtual duet of “Something Like That”.
