OFFSTAGE: Tim McGraw Should Dance, Donny Osmond Says

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

I’m with Donny Osmond. Dancing With the Stars could use a little more country. It’s been a while since Osmond won the reality television competition when he was on the show in 2009. But, still, he knows what it takes to get to the top and who would be a good candidate. “I think Tim McGraw. As a matter of fact, I was at Tim’s show the other night, and I got onstage with him, and the crowd was going crazy,” Osmond said in a recent radio interview. “I said, ‘You know, Tim’s in pretty good shape here. He’s got his muscles and the whole bit. I think he should do Dancing With the Stars!’ And the place went crazy.” It’s too late for this season, which has already cast celebrities like Chaz Bono, Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake, Nancy Grace, Carson Kressley and others. But if they put McGraw in the lineup for the next season, that would definitely put a little two-stepping in their tango.
