Tim McGraw has often expressed his interest in possibly entering politics at some point in his life, after his singing and acting careers have died down a bit. During an interview with CNN on Wednesday morning, the superstar was asked again about jumping into the political arena and the support he has received from former president Bill Clinton, if he were to run for public office. "That would be something that would be a long way away. You never rule anything out," Tim told CNN with a grin. "This is a great country, and it's given me so many opportunities and given me such a wonderful life that somewhere down the line, if I feel like I can give back, I certainly wouldn't say no to it. But it would be a while and my kids would have to be grown, because I certainly wouldn't want my closet opened any time soon."
Gwyneth Paltrow is representing country music at yet another big Hollywood awards show. The actress/singer will be taking the stage at The 83rd Academy Awards® to perform “Coming Home,” one of the songs featured in her movie, Country Strong, which co-stars Tim McGraw. The song is nominated for Original Song. This is the second time in four months that Gwyneth will be performing a song from her movie on an award show stage – last November, she sang “Country Strong” at the CMA Awards.
Brad Paisley had a dream come true and he is still gushing over it. Last Sunday, Brad not only got to drive the pace car at the Daytona 500, but Brad also got a bump from one of his favorite drivers, Jeff Gordon. Brad said he looked in the rearview mirror and there was Gordon's #24, "…you just never think you’re ever gonna see something like that, let alone get bumped. I got bumped by Jeff. Every time we’d go onto the turns, sort of away from the grandstands, you’d feel boom, boom, boom, and then Jeff was bumping me in the back. And he told me he was gonna bump me when we were going around, and I’ve never felt that before.”
Toby Keith is tired of a persistent rumor that has dogged him during his 17-year career. Toby said it's the one rumor that just won't go away. It happened after a concert in 2005 when the buzz was that Toby supposedly refused to perform at a concert here in the States until all Canadians in the audience left the venue. The rumored reasoning behind the request was that Toby had supposedly indicated at one time or other that Canada wasn't doing enough to help U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Toby says he finally decided that he couldn't let the untrue rumor derail his career, "Once you come to that decision, you find out you can focus all your energy on stuff that makes you happy and stuff that makes you more successful," Toby tells The Boot. "If you sit around stewing, you'll never get anything accomplished, and I'm growing my empire every day."
