Is Kane Brown coming after Tim McGraw’s title as fittest guy in country music?


Tim McGraw’s diet and exercise regimen is renowned throughout country music. He even wrote a book on the subject, called Grit & Grace: Train the Mind, Train the Body, Own Your Life.

So when Kane Brown told Men’s Health about his plans to become “the fittest guy in country music” back in January, he knew he had some stiff competition. But Tim says that he wouldn’t mind handing over the title to the younger superstar, according to an interview with his record label.

“He’s a lot younger than I am, so I’m sure he won’t have any problem with that,” Tim says, adding that Kane has even stoked a friendly rivalry with him in the name of upping his fitness game.

“He’s actually sent me a message a couple of times when he started hammering it pretty hard,” the singer says. “He says, ‘I’m comin’ after you, I’m comin’ after you!’”

Always one to take on a challenge, Tim says he welcomes the competition. “And I was like, ‘Come on, brother, come on,’” he details.

Tim has always maintained a demanding workout schedule, but he took things to the next level during his role as James Dutton on the Yellowstone prequel 1883, where he and the rest of the cast embarked on “cowboy camp” in order to get to know the ins and outs of pioneer life.
