Tim McGraw Advocates Stress Relief for Gulf Oil-Spill Victims
Last month, Tim McGraw spearheaded the star-studded 'Nashville Rising' concert, which raised more than $2 million for relief efforts, as Nashville continues to recover from the devastating May floods. Now, the country star has his mind on another disaster -- the ongoing oil spill ravaging the Gulf of Mexico. The Louisiana native (whose wife Faith Hill hails from Mississippi) addresses the government's response and what he thinks the first step should be.
"It's not my place to say anything directly to the President. He knows what he's doing and he's a good guy," Tim tells Chicago-based radio station US 99.5. "But get some relief for the people down there and get some help. If you could just take some stress off the people then more stuff could get done. Once people could know that their future is all right for now, at least they could take care of their kids, then everybody could put their heads together and figure out what the best option is after that."
Tim is on the road this summer on his Southern Voice tour, along with opening acts Lady Antebellum and Love and Theft, before taking the tour to Australia in September. Click here for dates.
