Meeting Tim McGraw

MEETING Tim McGraw was a bit like a cattle call, Melita Lee said of her experience being rushed backstage after his concert in Brisbane on September 16.

Her husband Tim was kind enough to take Melita to see the American country singer after winning a Gold double pass through a state competition run in The Gympie Times.

“It was awesome,” Melita said.

“The meet-and-greet with Tim McGraw happened so fast I can hardly remember but the concert was fantastic.”

McGraw headed to Australia earlier this month after completing the US leg of his Southern Voice tour.

He performed in two sold-out shows at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on September 16 and 17 and APN managed to score six double passes. Only one winner had the opportunity to meet Tim McGraw and Gympie’s Tim Lee was picked from thousands of entries.
