Governor Tim McGraw? “That Was Back in My Drinking Days,” He Says

Country star dismisses his 2006 pronouncements that he might run for office in Tennessee.

Remember in 2006 or so when Tim McGraw said he might run for governor or U.S. senator in Tennessee?

"That was back in my drinking days," Tim now tells the Minneapolis/St. Paul Star Tribune.

Tim quit drinking four years ago so he wouldn't set a bad example for his daughters.

"I pay attention [to politics]. I'm not sure anyone wants to hear my opinion—or that I should give my opinions."

But Tim's not totally ruling out public office.

"Who knows? I feel like I've been very fortunate. If one of these days I'm in a position where I can give back and feel like I'm smart enough to help and not just doing it for the hell of doing it, then it would be something I'd consider. But certainly it would be after my kids are grown."
