On Tackling Music And Movies
Tim McGraw rules the music charts and his film with Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side, debuts in theaters November 20. To say McGraw is having a great year is an understatement. Then again, every year of late has been good to the entertainment icon.
McGraw knows how to make a room swoon. He's one of the music industry's biggest stars and his influence over pop culture is ever-expanding. His superstar marriage to Faith Hill and their three young daughters is the stuff of love-story fairy tales.
But, look closely at McGraw's career and one sees a creative force willing to take changes for the sake of art.
Who else could tackle the role of a verbally abusive dad in Friday Night Lights and emerge through the experience as a legitimate actor who, when he has the time, can be called to greatness for audience's entertainment?
After all, McGraw has a family and a music career to attend to who inspire him while he stars alongside greats such as Robert Duvall and Vince Vaughn in Four Christmases and Billy Bob Thornton in Friday Night Lights.
As Sean Tuohy, McGraw portrays the patriarch of The Blind Side.
When sitting across from a pop culture legend such as McGraw, it is humbling to witness how the film's muse, Michael Oher, is an inspiration to a man who has inspired hundreds of millions.
For the megastar that is both a Grammy and Country Music Award-winner, muses are powerful. McGraw exclusively tells SheKnows about how each element of the entertainment business plays its role in his life and why the Tuohy's story, to him as told in The Blind Side, is one for the ages.
