Tim McGraw shows off his ripped physique while going shirtless for a new cover story in Men’s Health‘s July/August 2014 issue, on newsstands June 24.
Here is what the 47-year-old country superstar had to share with the mag:
On his step father: “One of the things I learned from my stepdad was a really strong work ethic. He was a trucker, he was a cowboy, he was a farmer, he did all sorts of things, but he always showed up for work. He always got the job done.”
On quitting drinking: “When your wife tells you it’s gone too far, that’s a big wake-up call. That, and realizing you’re gonna lose everything you have. Not monetarily, not career-wise, but family-wise. It got to the point where my kids were getting older, and it was way past the point that they noticed it. And I noticed that they noticed.”
On his voice: “It’s not like polishin’ silver. I’m not Pavarotti. My voice training comes with two hours of shows every night. I mean, I can warm up all I want–I don’t–and it’s not gonna make a hill’a beans’ difference. I’m a storyteller, not a singer.”
