Tim McGraw Gets in The Holiday Spirit For ‘A Very GRAMMY Christmas’ (page 5)
By Shannon Carlin
The GRAMMYs rounded up some of their favorite artists to wish us all a happy holiday for their very first Christmas special, A Very GRAMMY Christmas.
Tim McGraw‘s Christmas memory was a life changing one. He explained that while looking through his mom’s closet for presents one year he found his birth certificate, which revealed that his last name was not Smith like he had thought, but McGraw. That moment led him to find out that his real dad was not who he thought, but instead was the baseball player Tug McGraw.
After sharing his moment, McGraw hit the stage for his performance of the 2004 track “Live Like You Were Dying,” which won him the GRAMMY in 2005 for Best Male Country Vocal Performance wowing the crowd and earning a standing ovation. He then took us downhome for a performance of “Overrated,” but not before sharing that his favorite GRAMMY moment was watching his wife Faith Hill win three GRAMMYs in 2001 for her 1999 album, Breathe.
