He is of Italian, Irish, German, Scottish-Irish descent. In 1994, he hit it big with the single Indian Outlaw, which was said to cause controversy among Native Americans, but critics said it portrayed them in a good way. Another one of his songs, Don't Take the Girl, became his #1 hit and showed him as a country guy with a good heart. Another one of his singles, Down on the Farm, rose to #2 on the charts. In 1995, he released his All I Want album, which includes the tracks I Like It, I Love It, which hit #1 on the country charts, She Never Lets It Go to Her Heart which rose to #1 on the charts in 1996. Hit top 5 hits that year were Can't Really Be Gone, All I Want is a Life, Maybe We Should Just Sleep On It, and She Never Lets It Go to Her Heart.

His 1997 album Everywhere topped the country charts at #2. 4 of the tracks, Where the Green Grass Grows, Everywhere, It's Your Love and Just to See You Smile stayed on the Billboard Country charts for 42 weeks. At the 1997 CMA awards(Country Music Association), Everywhere won for Best Album of the Year

In 1999, his A Place in the Sun album debuted. It had, yet again, more award winning tracks, such as Please Remember Me, Something Like That, My Best Friend, My Next Thirty Years, Some Things Never Change. It went to #7 on the country charts.

In 2000, he released a Greatest Hits album, which had all of his good songs on it. When in Buffalo, N.Y., him and Kenny Chesney had gotten into a little bit of trouble with the police after Chesney attempted to ride a police horse. McGraw came to his aid when police officers thought that Chesney was stealing and tried to arrest him. They were both arrested and charged with assault. Later on, Faith Hill dressed as a police officer and led McGraw off stage.

His 2004 album Live Like You Were Dying was a tribute to his father Tug McGraw, who died of a brain tumor the year before. This album spent 7 weeks on the charts. In late 2004, he did a duet with hip hop artist Nelly, Over and Over, which became a major hit and landed on the Top 40 charts for 10 weeks.

On Oct. 20, 2009, he released his Southern Voice album. On Nov. 10, 2010, he presented the awards at the 44th Annual Country Music Awards.

He first caught the acting bug when he appeared on a 1995 episode of the Jeff Foxworthy Show, playing Jeff's rival. In 2004, he played the overbearing father of a running back in the movie Friday Night Lights. His first lead role, however, came in 2006, when he played the father of the main character Rob in the movie Flicka. Then in 2009, he appeared alongside Sandra Bullock in the movie The Blind Side. Both him and Bullock played Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, who raised a homeless teen named Michael Oher, who would later go on to be a famous football star. This movie was also based on a true story.
