Country star Tim McGraw has a busy year planned. He recently appeared in his third network television special, and is about to launch a major concert tour with his wife Faith Hill.
"Beautiful People" is one of four new songs on Tim McGraw's latest release, Reflected: Greatest Hits II. The album also features 10 of his biggest hits, including "Live Like You Were Dying," "She's My Kind of Rain" and "Real Good Man." Rounding out the tracks are two duets that appeared on other artists albums, "Over and Over," which he recorded last year with rap star Nelly, and "Like We Never Loved At All," his duet with wife Faith Hill.
In addition to his successful music career, Tim has ventured into acting. He appeared in the 2004 film Friday Night Lights, and, in July, he'll be seen on the big screen again in the new adaptation of the family classic, My Friend Flicka. One of the songs from the film's soundtrack was included on Tim's new greatest hits album. Tim co-wrote the track, called "My Little Girl."
Tim says he's reading more movie scripts and is open to the idea of making a film with his wife. Faith Hill made her big screen debut in 2004 in a remake of The Stepford Wives. But, he adds, "We're not going to do it just for the sake of doing it. It has to be something that would be special."
In the meantime, Tim will spend the next four months performing concerts with Faith throughout the U.S. The couple's first "Soul II Soul" tour in 2000 drew close to one million fans. With many dates already sold out, ticket sales are expected to reach a similar number for the 70 shows on their "Soul II Soul 2" tour. The outing is scheduled to run through late-August.
Tim's new greatest hits album debuted at Number One on Billboard's Country chart to become his ninth consecutive chart-topping entry. Its first single took only three weeks to reach the Top 20 on the Country Singles chart.
