McGraw Returns to Louisiana for TV Special

Tim McGraw returns to his hometown — Start, La. — on Sept. 7 to tape his first TV special that airs this fall on NBC. Tickets to McGraw’s performance at the C.W. Earle Cotton Gin are priced at $10 and available from Ticketmaster. A portion of the proceeds will benefit scholarships and other local charities in northeast Louisiana. The taping will replace McGraw’s Swampstock celebrity concert and softball game this year. McGraw will be featured in an upcoming book about the making of his new album that arrives in stores Nov. 26. 08/14/02
