Tim McGraw On Pandemic: ‘It’s The Best Time To Reach Out’

With the general country-wide orders to remain socially distant and stay home as much as possible during the current COVID-19 pandemic, Tim McGraw believes that it's even more important these days to make an effort to stay connected.

He tells us: [“My nephew, who’s a pharmacist, he said, ‘You know, I’m starting to think that disasters bring out the best in people but recessions and pandemics bring out the worst in people.’  And I said, ‘Well, Jeffrey, I understand what you’re saying. When a disaster happens, something happens then it’s over and everybody moves in to try to help. Everybody wants to help.  But when something like this happens, there’s a part of us that wants to put your arms around your immediate family and shutter the doors and not let the world in. Now, in a bigger way, it’s the best time to reach out, and I think that’s what keeps us sane during this time.  It’s what keeps us comfortable, what keeps us grounded, keeps our humanity about us and keeps us from not turning cold bitter and scared."] SOUNDCUE (:34 OC: . . . bitter and scared.)

Tim’s latest single, “I Called Mama,” is the debut release off his next studio album, which will be released this fall.
