With his new book, country music superstar Tim McGraw hopes to take readers in on a journey that has left him completely changed.
The “Live Like You Were Dying” singer is penning Grit & Grace: Train the Mind, Train the Body, Own Your Life — set to hit shelves on November 5, 2019. In it, Tim will talk about how he improved his life by working on himself on the inside as well as the outside. This balance, he notes, is what it takes to improve your wellbeing.
“I’ve gone through a physical transformation in the last 10 years, but it’s not just my appearance that has changed,” Tim told People. “My mind is clearer, my sense of purpose is sharper and my relationships are deeper. Consistent physical exercise helps me bring focus to my life and to the people who mean the most to me.”
In order to accomplish this, Tim explained it’s up to you to figure out what your own personal vision is and follow through — which is what he did more than 10 years ago when he traded alcohol for the gym, resulting in a weight loss.
Part of the motivation, of course, was family. For Tim that includes fellow country music legend and wife of more than 20 years Faith Hill, 51, and the three daughters they share together: 21-year-old Gracie, 20-year-old Maggie, and 17-year-old Audrey.
“That’s something we all want,” Tim added. “And I believe it’s something that is available to anyone who wants it, regardless of their level of fitness. I want this book to help people find what works for them by sharing the mental and physical approach that has worked for me.”
As for what readers can expect, Julie Will — the VP editorial director of Harper Wave, the company publishing Tim’s book — teased that it is “a hybrid of narrative and practical, personal and prescriptive.”
