Tim McGraw won't put up with abuse at concerts

The title caught my attention.

WASHINGTON Tim McGraw isn't looking for trouble at his concerts, but there are certain things he just won't ignore.

"It's all about enjoying yourself and not messing with other people's fun," the country singer said in a recent interview. "And certainly I don't think you should be abusive to women. I think that's No. 1 right there."

McGraw, 42, has thrown out disruptive fans from at least two of his concerts in the past year and a half, most recently in July. Video of the incidents taken by fans went viral on the Internet.

At one concert, McGraw stops in the middle of singing "Indian Outlaw," calls for security and pulls a guy on stage by his shirt so that guards can haul him away.

"Look, I'm the one with the microphone, so if there's something that needs to be done, and I'm the one who can see it because of where I'm at, then I'm probably the only person who can ask somebody to do something about it, because other people may not be able to see it, security especially," said McGraw.

His protectiveness may come from being a father of three girls, or maybe just from the way he was raised. McGraw's new cologne, "Southern Blend," is marketed to "the true Southern gentleman." He says that means the scent is "respectful."

"I mean it's not offensive. It's not in your face. It's not super strong," McGraw said. "It has just the right weight to it. And I think that's what a Southern gentleman has. He just does the right thing."

McGraw made sure his wife, Faith Hill, and three daughters liked the cologne: "It's gotta be approved by the women in my life before anything can work out for me. So they definitely have the final word."

In addition to the cologne, McGraw is costarring with Sandra Bullock in the upcoming film, "The Blind Side," this fall, and he is coming out with a new album, "Southern Voice," out in October.

He credits his wife for helping him balance all his projects: "She kept me on task."

Re: Tim McGraw won't put up with abuse at concerts

see, this is what annoys me about people on RAA saying that TBY people are not ryan fans and that we're mean and the anti-fan. i would fight tooth and nail for ry-ry's honour at a tim mcgraw concert - with or without whiskey! (even though RA obviously allowed tim the rights to cover it, but that's not the issue, haha)

puking our guts out.. I would have to be really reaaaallly drunk and full of methadone to wind up at a McGraw concert. I would be heckling for Stars go Blue and screaming, "sing it right you fat inbred bastard!"

It would not be pretty but it kinda sounds like fun.

I doubt he called Ryan and asked for permission

You can cover whatever you want at a concert without permission as long as the venue pays some sort of royalty fee to some agency. the money doesn't go to the artist that was covered though. Same goes for a bar with a jukebox.

He would have needed permission for the studio version though.
