Tim McGraw is a certified country music superstar, but what is it with all these outlandish situations that he gets involved in during concerts?
Earlier this week, McGraw helped eject an unruly fan. Then, you had the "family jewels" incident where McGraw's wife, Faith Hill, confronted a fan. And who could forget the infamous "Buffalo Horse Incident" with good buddy, Kenny Chesney.
One show that won't feature any such drama is the Honky Tonky Tailgate Party. The show has a different lineup every year, but the latest edition features Mark Wills, Trent Willmon, Ray Scott and inaugural Nashville Star winner Buddy Jewell.
Scott and Jewell recently recorded independent albums, and from what I've heard, they both sound pretty good.
Scott recorded a relatively traditional debut, "My Kind of Music," in 2005 for Warner Bros., but now he's able to stretch that sound a little bit further.
Jewell gets both historical, "The Southern Side of Heaven," and political, "This Ain't Mexico," on his latest 13-song album, "Country Enough."
