Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Country music sensation and CMA Entertainer of the Year McGraw goes multimedia with the publication of a pictorial diary about the making of his album Tim McGraw and the Dancehall Doctors. To hear the singer and country music stalwarts tell it, McGraw broke all the rules on his latest outing: rather than record in Nashville with technically brilliant session players (par for the country music course), McGraw decided to have his buddies from his road band, the Dancehall Doctors, back him in an upstate New York farmhouse-cum-studio. From the project's initial planning and reception to its ultimate realization, this volume presents a view of McGraw and his band that's as slick and upbeat as the best PR material. McGraw loves and respects his long-time band members (they're the "guys who knew you when you were borrowing money from them," he says affectionately); and they, in turn, seem deeply fond and admiring of him. In first-person snippets that dot the text, musicians, producers, engineers and techies wax poetic about McGraw's artistic integrity, his intuitiveness, his desire to please fans, his ability to pick songs (he doesn't write his own) and his refusal to do easy hits-even how much women appreciate his posterior. There are basic biographical snippets-Tim dropped out of college, taught himself how to play guitar and then moved to Nashville; even when he couldn't pay the heating bills, his friends knew he'd become a star-and lots of pictures of McGraw and friends, as well as reasonably interesting discussions about making the album itself, which will be released simultaneously. Real fans will embrace this volume, as long as they're not looking for real insight: this is as feel-good as it comes. (Nov. 26) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
