So much is coming out on Tim McGraw and his Oprah's Master Class interview, which aired on OWN over the weekend. McGraw opened up about his drinking, saying, "It got to the point where I knew I drank too much.” Tim traces his problems with drinking back to his childhood when he found out his father was professional baseball player Tug McGraw. Tim also shared when he decided to give up what he calls his "liquid courage." He said it was the night before the "Live Your Voice" tour started. After a night of ‘blow out drinking’ he flew to Florida and started the tour, and hasn’t had a drink since. (Photo Credit: www.allaccess.com)
