McGraw to Open Fashion Rocks TV Special

Tim McGraw will open Friday night’s (Sept. 9) Fashion Rocks TV special by performing “My Old Friend,” a track from his Live Like You Were Dying album, as a tribute to New Orleans. With the Crescent City still in a state of emergency following Hurricane Katrina, CBS-TV and the program’s producers thought it was appropriate to ask McGraw, a Louisiana native, to open the show. Also featured are David Bowie, Destiny’s Child, Duran Duran, Billy Idol, Alicia Keys, Nelly, Shakira, Gwen Stefani, Joss Stone, the Arcade Five and Rob Thomas. The special airs at 9 p.m. ET.
