REVIEW OF REVIEWS
David Letterman is a known country music fan, and Letterman personally invited Tim McGraw to appear on his late night show twice in one week for two special concert events…
…The two performances will make Tim the fourth artist in history to ever have a concerted hosted by “The Late Show.” Elvis Costello, Pearl Jam, and Paul McCartney are the artists Tim McGraw will go down in history with having performances hosted by “The Late Show.”
This week, a few hundred of Mr. McGraw’s fans—most of them female—crowded into the Ed Sullivan Theater, home of “Late Show With David Letterman.” Right after Mr. McGraw’s back-to-back Letterman tapings, CBS staged a concert for the fans, who had been sent invitations via the singer’s revamped fan club and Web site. CBS streamed the concert live on the Web, simulcast it to CBS radio stations and sprinkled clips into the network’s TV schedule.
On stage, Mr. McGraw wore tight jeans, a black cowboy hat and a 1980 World Series ring that his father, famed relief pitcher Tug McGraw, gave him just before he died in 2004. Mr. McGraw bracketed some hits, such as a song associated with his father, “Live Like You Were Dying,” with songs from his new album. “Aretha Franklin sold it, Dolly Parton graced it, Rosa Parks rode it, Scarlett O chased it,” he sang in the album’s title anthem, “Southern Voice.”
