Tim Mcgraw Biography
Tim Mcgraw born Samuel Timothy McGraw, is an American singer, songwriter and actor. He was born on May 1, 1967 in Delhi, Louisiana. He is the only child of Elizabeth Ann D’Agostino and Frank Edwin McGraw Jr.
He was raised by his mother in Start, also in Richland Parish, east of Monroe. He grew up believing his stepfather, Horace Smith, was his father. From the time of his mother’s marriage until the time he met his biological father, his last name was Smith. At age 11, McGraw discovered his birth certificate while searching his mother’s closet to look for Christmas presents. After his discovery, his mother revealed that his biological father was Tug McGraw, and took Tim to meet him for the first time. For seven years, Tug denied being Tim’s father. Tim was 18 years old when Tug first realized how much Tim looked like him at that age, and he acknowledged paternity. They remained close until Tug’s death in 2004.
He attended Northeast Louisiana University, now the University of Louisiana at Monroe, on a baseball scholarship. His mother returned to Jacksonville, Florida in 1987, and McGraw followed. He attended Florida Community College at Jacksonville for one term, and occasionally sat in with local bands. In 1989, on the day his hero Keith Whitley died, McGraw dropped out of college to head to Nashville and pursue a musical career.
McGraw came to the attention of Curb Records in 1990. After cutting a demo single, McGraw gave a copy to his father. A man who was friends with Curb Records executives heard the demo while driving with Tug one day and recommended that Curb contact the young singer. Several weeks later, he was able to play his tape for Curb executives, after which they signed him to a recording contract. McGraw’s first single, “What Room Was the Holiday In”, was released on March 29, 1991.

Tim Mcgraw Son
Tyler Zarbo told the National Enquirer that the singer helped raise him when McGraw was engaged to his mother Kristine Donahue.
While Zarbo is not McGraw’s biological child, according to the Florida student, the For A Little While star still continued a close relationship with him after he parted ways with Donahue in the mid-nineties.
“Tim McGraw was like a father to me when I was growing up,” Zarbo told the magazine. “He saw me as the son he never had, and we’ve stayed in contact. I wish he could have remained my substitute dad, but it just wasn’t meant to be.”
National Enquirer reports that McGraw immediately took Zarbo under his wing when he was in a relationship with Donahue.
