This year’s awardees at the 2023 ACM Honors, which took place in August in Nashville, included Tim McGraw. Along with his wife Faith Hill and their two kids, Audrey and Maggie, he went to the show. Gracie, McGraw and Hill’s kid, wasn’t there either.

The McGraw family coordinated their black and white photo shoot on the carpet ahead of the event. Audrey was dressed in white, Hill and Maggie were dressed in black, and McGraw was wearing a black shirt and black cowboy hat. All three women had red lipstick on.

The Cliffie Stone-inspired ACM Icon Award, which goes to a country music artist or industry leader who, over the course of their career, has contributed to the genre’s growth in popularity through a variety of mediums, including songwriting, recording, production, touring, film, television, literary works, charitable contributions, and other goodwill endeavors, was given to McGraw.Mike Dungan, a record executive and the previous chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group Nashville, was also bestowed with this accolade.

The musician expressed his gratitude to his loved ones during his acceptance speech, although he acknowledged that he was unable to look at his wife and girls.

He admitted to Entertainment Tonight backstage, “I couldn’t look in their direction because, you know, I’m terrible at giving speeches.” “And when I do deliver presentations, I usually start crying quite soon. I hope that I handled it quite properly.

In addition, he made jokes about how his family dynamic will soon return to normal despite his accomplishment.He smiled, “They’ll all give me a lot of crap for it, for sure.” “I’m the low guy on the totem pole with my wife and three girls. Furthermore, out of all the singers in our family, I am the least gifted.

Nelly and Brett Young honored McGraw. Two musical tributes were given to McGraw during the 2023 ACM Honors. Nelly sang his and McGraw’s classic 2004 duet “Over and Over,” while Brett Young sang McGraw’s “Don’t Take The Girl.”

McGraw told ET, “I’d love to do another song with Nelly.” He’s one of my favorite musicians, and I adore the song. We were actually the first to do that kind of collaboration, about twenty years ago. Saying that I’ve had a hip-hop number one makes me proud.

Despite having over 40 No. 1 songs, ten No. 1 albums, three GRAMMY Awards, 14 ACM Awards, 11 CMA Awards, and over 80 million records sold worldwide, McGraw has become a true icon of country music over the course of his over 30-year career. However, he acknowledged that he feels “undeserving” of his most recent honor.

He thought, “I feel like I’ve been doing this for a long time, but I also feel like I have a lot more to go.” “I hope this isn’t the end of my career, but I really appreciate it,” the speaker said.

He went on, “I really appreciate my fans, but I’m not an awards guy.” “I value the other artists working in this field. I am grateful for the inspiration that other artists provide me with. I always take away something new from a new record I listen to. I can’t wait for folks to hear my new record once it’s released. And maybe I keep getting better at it.
