Tim McGraw TV

(Red Light) Tim McGraw will launch his upcoming album, Southern Voice, with a series of national television appearances. This Friday, October 16th, McGraw will return to the "Late Show" for a performance and an interview with Letterman.

Later this month, McGraw will perform on "TODAY" (10/23) as part of the Toyota Concert Series on Rockefeller Plaza, "The Jay Leno Show" (10/27), where he'll be joined by special guest Gregg Allman, and "Ellen" (10/29).

Southern Voice, McGraw's first studio album in two and a half years, will be released on October 20th by Curb Records and he will play a very special show that evening at the intimate Joe's Bar in Chicago with special guest Chris Young. Proceeds from the concert, which is sold out, will go to The Neighbor's Keeper Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable fund created by Tim and his wife, Faith Hill.

Recorded with his longtime producer, Byron Gallimore (Faith Hill, Sugarland), Southern Voice's 12 songs represent a new level of depth and intensity for McGraw; they tell unforgettable stories of lives lived and lessons learned, and reveal a man staring down what it means to be a father, a husband. McGraw, who was recently featured on the cover of Billboard, gave the title track, which is also his current single, its national television debut last month on the NFL Network simulcast of "NFL OPENING KICKOFF 2009."

Plans are currently being finalized for a major Tim McGraw tour, which will kick off in February 2010. Details will be announced shortly.
