Samuel Timothy "Tim" McGraw (born May 1, 1967) is an American singer, songwriter and actor. Many of McGraw's albums and singles have topped the country music charts with total album sales in excess of 40 million units in the US, making him the eighth best-selling artist, and the third best-selling country singer, in the Soundscan era. He is married to country singer Faith Hill and is the son of the late baseball player Tug McGraw.
McGraw had 11 consecutive albums debut at Number One on the Billboard albums charts. Twenty-five singles hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. He has won three Grammys, 14 Academy of Country Music awards, 11 Country Music Association (CMA) awards, 10 American Music Awards, and three People's Choice Awards. His Soul2Soul II Tour with Faith Hill is the highest grossing tour in country music history, and one of the top five among all genres of music.
Faith Hill (born Audrey Faith Perry; September 21, 1967) is an American country pop singer and occasional actress. Her voice type is a mezzo-soprano. She is married to Country superstar Tim McGraw, with whom she has recorded several successful duets. Hill has sold more than 40 million records worldwide.
Hill's first two albums, Take Me as I Am (1993) and It Matters to Me (1995), established her as a popular country singer. The pair placed a combined three No. 1's on Billboard's country charts and each received multi-platinum certifications in the U.S. But the release of her next two albums, Faith (1998) and Breathe (1999), brought Hill mainstream, crossover and international success, by achieving high positions and huge sales globally. Faith spawned her first international hit, "This Kiss", and went multi-platinum in various countries. Breathe became her best-selling album to date and one of the best-selling country albums of all time, by being buoyed by the huge crossover success of her best known single, "Breathe". It went multi-platinum in several countries around the world and earned Hill three Grammy Awards, including Best Country Album. In 2001, she recorded "There You'll Be" for the soundtrack of the movie Pearl Harbor and the song became an international success and her best-selling single in Europe. Hill's next two albums, Cry (2002) and Fireflies (2005), kept her mainstream popularity. The former went multi-platinum and spawned another crossover single, "Cry", which won Hill a Grammy Award. The latter went multi-platinum as well, bolstered by the success of the singles "Mississippi Girl" and "Like We Never Loved at All", which earned her another Grammy Award.
Entertainment is a form of activity that holds the attention and interest of an audience, or gives pleasure and delight. It can be an idea or a task, but is more likely to be one of the activities or events that have developed over thousands of years specifically for the purpose of keeping an audience's attention. Although people's attention is held by different things, because individuals have different preferences in entertainment, most forms are recognisable and familiar. Storytelling, music, drama, dance, and different kinds of performance exist in all cultures, were supported in royal courts, developed into sophisticated forms and over time became available to all citizens. The process has been accelerated in modern times by an entertainment industry which records and sells entertainment products. Entertainment evolves and can be adapted to suit any scale, ranging from an individual who chooses a private entertainment from a now enormous array of pre-recorded products; to a banquet adapted for two; to any size or type of party, with appropriate music and dance; to performances intended for thousands; and even for a global audience.
The experience of being entertained has come to be strongly associated with amusement, so that one common understanding of the idea is fun and laughter, although many entertainments have a serious purpose. This may be the case in the various forms of ceremony, celebration, religious festival, or satire for example. Hence, there is the possibility that what appears as entertainment may also be a means of achieving insight or intellectual growth.
In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.
Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
