Country music legend Tim McGraw has long been heralded as a legend, but last night at the People’s Choice Awards he was bestowed with yet another title: icon.
McGraw beat out luminaries like Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Willie Nelson and George Strait to take home the honor of Favorite Country Music Icon.
“[I would like to thank] especially you the fans,” says McGraw in an exclusive video for PeoplesChoice.com. “You guys have made everything possible for me and I look forward to doing this for a long, long time.”
