Tim McGraw wearing an earpiece is not news. But being told what to do through that earpiece? That’s where this gets interesting.
McGraw was one of the first stars on Tuesday’s (March 10) premiere of the brand new hidden-camera comedy show Repeat After Me.
The show, if you haven’t heard, is based on something Ellen DeGeneres does on her own talk show with an off-camera person feeding celebrities ridiculous things to say and do while they are in public. You really have to see it to comprehend the hilarity.
For example, when it was McGraw’s turn, he was in a dressing room on the Warner Brothers lot, waiting for a nurse.

And the first thing he did was introduce himself as Timmy McGraw. Then he tells the nurse everything looks a little blurry. Then he explains the ground rules for their appointment.
“I won’t take off my hat, my ears are very ticklish and no downtown funny business,” he says. “I knew I had a problem because I woke up and my wife had four bazoombas. And at first I was like yee-haw. Then I was like yee-naw.”
McGraw goes on to tell the nurse, “Can I confide in you? I’ve never been sky diving. Or Rocky Mountain climbing. Or bull riding.” I’m sure she’s heard his 2004 hit song “Live Like You Were Dying,” which recommends all three, so she must’ve been dying inside.
He told the nurse what he has done, though, is practiced kissing on his elbow. McGraw demonstrates that, poorly, then walks into the wall and blames his eyes. He continues to walk around the room breaking things until he finally confesses to the nurse they are on Repeat After Me.
