Tim McGraw – Then

Raised by his mother and stepfather in the good old state of Louisiana, Tim McGraw’s biological father, Frank “Tug” McGraw Jr., was a star pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets. While he refused to acknowledge Tim as his son until he turned 18, Tim McGraw still followed in his father’s footsteps and landed a baseball scholarship at Louisiana University. Shortly into college, a knee injury ended his sports career, so he left Louisiana for Nashville in the hopes of making it big as a country music singer.
