Tim McGraw's father was a baseball player and I believe Vince Gill wrote "Go Rest High" for his brother. A liitle side note, Tim's grandfather was also a baseball player and is probably best known for being a very successful manager.N

Tim's father is Tug McGraw, a baseball player. Vince started writing Go Rest High on That Mountain when Keith Whitley died and finished it when his brother died. So my answer to the second question is 1 and 2.<P>PaulaN

Just a little more trivia on Tim and his father.Tim didn't know his father WAS Tug Mcgraw until he was 12 or 13(not sure of age) but was a fan of Tug's and had his picture on his wall.After meeting and making contact with his father he changed his name to Mcgraw from the name of his mothers husband who had claimed him.(sorry can't remember the name either).N

Paula: that name rings a bell but I can't say for sure.When Tim first started topping the charts there was an article in country weekly about the events leading up to the discovery of his real father.There may have been a book written about it(from his mothers story)I just can't remember all the details.N
