Tim McGraw Visits Cincinnati Children’s Hospital [Watch]
Country superstar and dedicated father of three Tim McGraw took some time out from his tour schedule to visit with the kids at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital before his concert there. He even did a little Q&A with some of the kids!
Before sitting down in Seacrest Studios with WKID 33 — a TV and radio station that broadcasts to hospital patients — on June 29, McGraw made his rounds greeting everyone in the studio. The singer looked comfy and casual in a grey T-shirt and red Phillies hat when he sat down to answer a few questions from the kids.
McGraw let everyone know that even though he may be a top country act, it doesn’t faze his daughters at all. “I think I embarrass them most of the time,” he says with a smile of his three girls, who are 17, 15 and 12. “They’re into their lives, you know, they have school and friends … I think that what I do is the last thing on their mind.”
One of the girls in the studio wanted to know if McGraw, like them, had ever been in the hospital. He said aside from having his appendix out, he hadn’t ever been in the hospital for an extended period of time. “Knock on wood,” he adds.
Then, a little boy asked the singer what he likes to do when he’s not being his country star self.
“I like to snorkel with my daughters, that’s one of my hobbies,” McGraw shares. “I like to fly airplanes, that’s one of my hobbies. I like to read. I’m a big reader, it’s one of my favorite things to do.”
Of course, he was sure to let the patients know how much he loves playing their city, even describing the feeling of playing with the river behind him and how “lively” the crowd is.
Despite getting to travel a lot to places like Cincinnati and beyond, McGraw says the one place he wants to visit that he hasn’t quite gotten to yet is Prague. It’s a family dream for he and his family to visit that city in the Czech Republic. Somehow, we think he’ll get there someday!
