Tim McGraw Reveals His Connection to Timothy Wayne

Wayne doesn’t mention his relationship with McGraw on his social media account. He didn’t even mention it when he announced that he’ll be on the Standing Room Only tour this summer. McGraw, however, let the cat out of the bag on his Instagram about a week ago.

McGraw posted a photo of Wayne in a vocal booth. In the caption, he wrote, “Working in the studio with my nephew Timothy Wayne.”

If Timothy Wayne has music online, it is incredibly well hidden. However, his Instagram features some short snippets of him singing. There’s a clip of him singing “Turn the Page” by Bob Seger in his kitchen. There’s also a video of him singing Tracy Lawrence’s “Find Out Who Your Friends Are” with Brandon Davis.
