Also Out of the Closet ... Tim McGraw

9 albums, 25 # 1 singles, 33 million copies sold, 2 Grammys, 2004 People's Choice Award for Favorite Male Musical Performer

married to Faith Hill

closet Democrat:
It's innate in me to be a Democrat -- a true Southern populist kind of Democrat. There's not a lot of those anymore .... The issues that matter to me are the social safety nets for people, health care, middle-class concerns. We need to take care of the middle class and the poor in our country. The chasm is getting larger between haves and have-nots, and that's something we need to close down a little bit.

Puts his money where his mouth is too: McGraw's behind Neighbor's Keeper Foundation, funding community charities.

First we get Bruce Willis: "I'm a baldheaded Democrat." Then Dean Smith: "I'm a Baptist Democrat." Now Tim McGraw: "I'm a Live Like You're Dyin' Democrat!"

Who's next? Randy Savage?
