Miranda and Blake Give $5 Concert + Music Wasn't Tim McGraw's First Career Choice



Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton had an impromptu concert at her bed and breakfast, The Ladysmith in Tishomingo, OK on Friday. The show was announced on the B & B’s Facebook page a few hours before it started. Tickets were only five dollars and 80 people made it there.

Tim McGraw says music was not his first career choice. After high school he had scholarship offers for baseball, football and basketball but he decided to go to Northeast Louisiana University and sing with a group called The Electones. A few months later tho they kicked him out after he failed his music theory class because he couldn’t learn how to read music.

Years ago, Garth signed a minor league contract with the Padres and the Mets and he also did a guest stint with the Royals and said, “half the people in the baseball park are for you and the rest hate you and people yelled things at me like, ‘and I hate your music too.”

Finally - Thomas Rhett’s first concert was the Rolling Stones and one time when he saw them he snuck a camera in and secretly filmed Mick Jagger during sound-check.
