Tim McGraw’s gesture of kindness and Jason Aldean’s take on retirement | Music City Minute

May 8, 2024, 4:11 PM | Updated: 4:11 pm

Tim McGraw is an incredible human being. He’s been involved with the Make A Wish foundation for quite a while. Recently, the foundation approached him about a girl named Emily in Kentucky. She’s been battling an unspecified illness since high school, and her one dream was to meet the country icon. McGraw made that wish come true by driving to her home and spending the day visiting with Emily and her family. Not long after that visit, McGraw invited the family to his concert in Nashville where they got the VIP treatment.

Being an entertainer is a very busy position, especially for huge stars like Jason Aldean. He recently opened up about whether retirement was in his future saying, “I don’t know. I feel like if you’re a musician, it’s kind of a life gig ya know?” He goes on to say there might be a point where he slows down his touring. However, he feels like he will always be performing in some capacity. Using the Rolling Stones as an example he said, “Look at them, they’re up there in age but still playing stadiums.”

I’m Sheena, and that’s your Music City Minute.
