It’s tough out there for a nice country boy.
Ask Tim McGraw, who was on stage doing his honky tonky thing when an overzealous fan got too close and got hold of his jeans, trying to rip them, all caught on video. McGraw had to think fast and swat her hand off him to keep from losing his clothing during an Atlanta concert.
Tim McGraw has appeared to have swatted a female fan’s hand during his concert at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta, Georgia after she pulled on his jeans ripping them and wouldn’t let go.
The incident happened during a performance of his song “Truck Yeah,” and TMZ posted the video.
The video clearly shows the woman tugging on his jeans as he tries to walk away from her, resulting in the jeans ripping. He then reaches down and swatted her hand away before she gets taken away by his security team.
A rep for McGraw told TMZ, “Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn’t let go as he was moving through the crowd. He instinctively swatted to try to keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing!), and so he could get to more fans who could slap hands with him before the end of the show.”
The country star’s rep also spoke to Billboard, explaining the same exact thing.
