Tim McGraw Takes Credit For Taylor Swift’s Success?

Despite writing a song about him, Taylor Swift didn’t actually meet Tim McGraw until she was performing the namesake song at the ACM Awards in 2007. She approached McGraw and his wife, country singer Faith Hill, in the audience. It seems the threesome hit it off because Swift was an opening act at their Soul2Soul II Tour later that year.

Tim McGraw spoke to Entertainment Tonight Canada about Swift’s mind-blowing success. He said that he knew early on that she was going to be a star. He told the outlet, “Faith and I both knew that there was no stopping her.”

According to McGraw, they came to that realization during the Soul2Soul tour. In a way, Taylor Swift owes part of her fame to Tim McGraw, or at least the song bearing his name.
