McGraw Ready for Hometown Show

Traffic in the small town of Start, La. will be heavier than usual Saturday (Sept. 6) when Tim McGraw tapes a TV special at the C.W. Earle Cotton Gin. McGraw is expected to introduce new songs from his upcoming album — Tim McGraw & the Dancehall Doctors — during the hometown show. The album is set for Nov. 26 release, but the project’s first single, “Red Ragtop,” began receiving radio airplay this week. The TV taping for the special, “Sing Me Home,” replaces McGraw’s annual Swampstock concert this year. The special will air in November on NBC-TV. 09/06/02
