Tim McGraw to play Franklin Theatre for Recovery Court benefit

Tim McGraw will play an intimate concert in Franklin, Tenn. on April 10 to raise funds for the surrounding area’s 21st District Recovery Court.

The country star and actor will be joined at the Franklin Theatre by three country songwriters who co-penned many of his hits: Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer Tom Douglas (“Grown Men Don’t Cry,” “My Little Girl”) and brothers Brad and Brett Warren (“Highway Don’t Care,” “If You’re Reading This,” “Felt Good on My Lips”).

The in-the-round style concert is dubbed “The Stories Behind the Songs.” All proceeds will go towards the Recovery Court and its mission “to support its 20-year mission to end the cycle of addiction and crime in our community by providing accountability and compassion to non-violent offenders in the criminal justice system.”

Tickets for the benefit are on sale now at franklintheatre.com, ranging from $200-$250.

“Both Brad and I have a passion to help those who are suffering from alcohol and substance abuse,” Brett Warren said in a press release. The songwriter is also on the court’s board of directors.

“This event is one of the ways we are supporting the addiction and recovery community and we look forward to joining Tim and Tom as we share the inspiration behind some of our songs.”

McGraw has been sober since 2008.

“It’s always a struggle. It’s never not a struggle,” he told People in a 2021 interview alongside his wife, Faith Hill.

“Those demons always come back. But you always have a partner that’s willing to fight them with you. We made a commitment to each other a long time ago that we’re not going to give up. It’s too easy to give up.”

McGraw released his latest album, “Here On Earth,” in 2020.
