-- LOS ANGELES (October 17, 2006)) — Country entertainer Tim McGraw has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
McGraw was surrounded by his wife Faith Hill, actor Billy Bob Thornton and a screaming throng of fans when his star was unveiled today in front of the Virgin Records store on Hollywood Boulevard.
The ceremony was timed to coincide with Friday’s release of “Flicka,” starring McGraw, Maria Bello and Alison Lohman. The movie is a new adaptation of the family novel “My Friend Flicka,” about a teen training a wild mustang.
The son of Philadelphia Phillies star relief pitcher Tug McGraw has sold more than 33 million albums,4 million singles and had 26 number-one singles.
In 2004, McGraw won the Grammy for best male country vocal performance for “Live Like You Were Dying.”
