Tim McGraw put on an absolutely incredible performance of his hit song "Something Like That” for The iHeartRadio Living Room Concert For America on Sunday (March 29) to pay tribute to the people on the frontline who are putting their lives at risk every day to fight the spread of COVID-19.
The country titan brought fans into his home to perform a special version of the track. McGraw swapped out his signature cowboy hat for a beanie as he sat on his diving board poolside to serenade us with that dreamy voice!
McGraw was joined (virtually, of course!) by his band who were playing the song remotely and despite McGraw saying “let's see if we can pull this off” the guys did it fantastically!
With earbuds in and ready to go, McGraw performed his hit song as if he was live on stage in front of tens of thousands of people — with one special appearance by his adorable dog and his daughter Maggie who was enlisted to film the performance.
Last weekend McGraw started our new favorite social media challenge dubbed the "#DeepCutsChallenge." After posting a video of himself singing John Schneider's “Take The Long Way Home,” he then nominated a couple of his country music friends to continue the challenge.
It's only snowballed from there and we cannot get enough of the amazing covers. Since the challenge has made waves on Instagram, the likes of Thomas Rhett, Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs and more have taken to picking up the guitar and playing their favorite country deep cuts.
The #DeepCutChallenge is just one way your favorite country artists are trying to stay connected with fans as their shows for the foreseeable future have been cancelled or postponed. Many artists have also performed live stream showsfrom their homes while quarantined due to the coronavirus pandemic.
You can support two of many charitable organizations that are helping victims and first responders during this difficult time —Feeding Americaand First Responders Children's Foundation. Every dollar raised from the COVID-19 response fund for Feeding America will be used to get food and funds to local food banks across the US and FOX Entertainment is matching the first $100,000 donated from supporters. Money raised for First Responders Children's Foundation will help support those first responder families who are enduring financial hardship due to the coronavirus outbreak.
