Tim McGraw Works Up a Sweat Long Before He Hits the Concert Stage

Big Machine Records

By the time Tim McGraw hits the stage for a two-hour concert, he’s already put in a few hours of intense workouts with his band and crew. That kind of training helps Tim make sure he’s giving the audience everything he’s got.

“I think that if you work really hard before the show, and you get conditioned that by the time the show hits that you’re really ready to go,” Tim explains.

He sees the group workout sessions as a team-building exercise, too.

Tim adds, “For us, it’s a good chance to talk about the show. It’s a good chance to hang out together and sort of just talk our way through what we’re doing work wise.”

Tim’s Shotgun Rider tour continues through a September 19 date in Irvine, California.
