Tim McGraw was a bit thrown off the very first time he heard Taylor Swift’s 2006 self-titled debut album …mainly because she named a song after him.  McGraw thought, “have i gotten to that age now to where they’re singing songs about me? Is everything still cool?”  He later found out that she wrote the song in the seventh grade and so that didn’t make him feel too old.
