Bring your daughter to work day looks a little different for country megastars like Tim McGraw. Back in 2015, during his show at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, McGraw had a special guest join him on stage – his daughter Gracie.
Fans cheered as McGraw put out a hand welcoming his 18-year-old daughter to the center of the stage in front of the large crowd. Together, they sang their stunning duet, “Here Tonight.” At the time, this was a newly released song off his album Damn Country Music.
“This is a song that we sang together. It’s on my new record, it’s called ‘Here Tonight,’” McGraw announced before they began the song.
They harmonized together, as Gracie helped her dad finish off the first verse then continued on in the chorus.
“There’s something in the air/there’s something in the wine/that’s something’s got me feeling/I ain’t packing up and leaving this time/I’d rather be right here tonight,” they sang.
Embracing in a hug, the father-daughter duo walked offstage listening to the crowd roar as they finished the song. McGraw’s wife, Faith Hill also joined him on stage that night to perform their 1997 hit, “It’s Your Love,” earning them a standing ovation.
A few years later in 2019, Gracie wow’d her dad once again with her singing skills when she belted out “What Kind of Fool” by Barbra Streisand and Barry Gibb during a road trip. He shared the “carpool karaoke” video of him and his daughter on social media
“PIPES!!!!!!……Dang, this girl can sing! Gracie and I having fun with Babs and Barry on our trip #chaseyourdreamsgirl,” he wrote encouraging his daughter’s talent.
McGraw and his wife seemed to have passed down their talent for singing and acting to their kids. Gracie, now 24 years old, is the oldest of her two siblings Maggie, 23, and Audrey, 20. We’ve already seen Gracie’s musical skills shine on stage, but she also has a knack for acting and she’s not the only one. Last year, McGraw’s youngest daughter Audrey made her acting debut as she played the lead role in her dad’s music video for “7500 OBO.”
“Typically, for the kids, we haven’t really put them out there in these sort of situations, but the more Faith and I talked about it … and really started digging into it (we realized) how much it made sense to us and our family and our beliefs, and how we want our daughters to be represented,” McGraw explained in a previous interview.
The middle sibling Maggie was also recognized by her dad on social media last year for completing her master’s program at Stanford University.
“I have such admiration for her work ethic, her fierce love of her family and especially her passion to make the world my better place… Go get em my sweet girl!!!” McGraw wrote on social media with pride.
In between recording new music and looking after their family, McGraw and Hill currently star in the popular Yellowstone prequel, 1883, as members of the Dutton family, James and Margaret.
Additionally, McGraw will soon embark on his headlining McGraw Tour 2022 with special guests Russell Dickerson, Brandon Davis and Alexandra Kay.
