Tim McGraw to Run for Tennessee Governor?

This was him like four years ago.

With the country focused on the drama surrounding the governor of Illinois, there may be something even more exciting happening in Tennessee: "Word in Nashville has it that Tim McGraw is seriously considering a run at the governor’s mansion in 2010," reports The New Republic. We applaud Tim for expanding beyond the realm of music — though we have seen him at least twice in concert — and we hope this bid is more successful than his attempt at "funny SNL host." And, hey, with his cowboy hat in place, it won't even matter if he has Blago-grade hair. [Plank/New Republic]
