Tim McGraw Net Worth
Tim McGraw net worth: Tim McGraw is a Louisiana-born singer and actor, who has a net worth of $85 million dollars. Tim McGraw has sold 40 million units and released over a dozen studio albums throughout his career. He had 11 consecutive albums debut at number 1 on the Billboard albums chart, and 25 of his singles hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs or Country Airplay charts. He has won three Grammy Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, 11 Country Music Association Awards, 10 American Music Awards and 3 People's Choice Awards. McGraw was born in Louisiana to his mother, Betty Ann D'Agostino and Tug McGraw Jr, a relief pitcher for the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies. He grew up believing his stepfather, Horace Smith, was his father, and from the time of his mother's marriage until the time he met his biological father, his last name was Smith. At age 11, McGraw discovered his birth certificate while searching his mother's closet and his mother revealed that his biological father was Tug McGraw. She took Tim to meet him for the first time, but sadly for seven years, Tug denied being Tim's father. Tim was 18 years old when Tug first realized how much Tim looked like him at that age, and he acknowledged paternity. They remained close until Tug's death in 2004. As a child, McGraw loved to play competitive sports, including baseball, even though he did not know his natural father was a professional athlete. He attended Northeast Louisiana University, now the University of Louisiana at Monroe, on a baseball scholarship, and during this time also learned how to play the guitar. McGraw came to the attention of Curb Records in 1990. Two years later, in 1992, he had his first charting hit with "Welcome to the Club" off his self-titled debut album. Although the album failed to make much of a dent on the charts, McGraw did have two other minor hits from it in 1993: "Memory Lane" and "Two Steppin Mind." His second album, Not a Moment Too Soon, was much more successful, becoming the best-selling country album in 1994. His third album, All I Want, was released in 1995 and was also a huge success, selling over 2 million copies. He went on to continually release successful albums and started working with his wife, Faith Hill, who is also a successful country music singer. McGraw and Hill married in 1996 and the couple have three daughters, Gracie, Maggie, and Audrey. His tour with Faith Hill, grossed more money than any other tour in country music history. The duo won Grammy Awards in 2001 and 2006 for the songs "Let's Make Love," and "Like We Never Loved At All."
