Country superstar Tim McGraw on his career, family life and why he quit drinking. And go backstage with Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean and Ne-Yo!
Tim McGraw is one of the hottest stars in country music and one half of country music’s hottest couple. And as someone who has sold more than forty million records and has a whopping 33 number one hits under his belt, Tim McGraw sure knows what he’s doing.
“It got to where I felt like I couldn’t do my job unless I had some sort of help.” –Tim McGraw

It is hard to make the Vegas Strip any more colorful or outrageous than it already is, but somehow Katie has managed to just that. A double-decker bus, some unsuspecting fans and surprise guest Roseanne Barr was all it took.
“I love standup…there’s no greater feeling for me.” –Roseanne Barr

It wouldn’t be Las Vegas without Pawn Stars, so Katie took a trip to the most famous shop in town, Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. Katie even brought a little something for Rick and the boys to check out.
“It still baffles me today, it’s a show about four fat guys in a pawn shop.” –Rick Harrison
@katieshow The Pawn Stars are the coolest… Love em’! Dad is sweet!!!

Tim McGraw is becoming a Vegas regular and it takes a village to put together the superstar extravaganza he is headlining there. Katie went behind the curtain to find out how it’s done, chatting with everyone from Ne-Yo to Pitbull to Lady Antebellum.
“One of the cool things about country music is that it is about passion.” –Ne-Yo

It’s not every day that Katie gets to do the show from Las Vegas, but since she is there, she wanted to make a big splash and attract a huge crowd. That’s why she asked the zany Cameron Hughes to help her out.
“Alright Katie this is for you!” –Cameron Hughes

Katie put Cameron Hughes to the test. Was he able to pull it off?
