Check out this Q&A article from the Nashville Country Music Examiner:
“You can call him “Dude,” “Buddy” or anything but “Chief.” And if you’re in his band, well, they have their own list of names for him. But when it comes to the marquee, it really should list all three of his given names, if you please: Sean Patrick McGraw.
“Honestly I don’t care (what people call me), but I don’t like when they leave the Patrick out. I like the Patrick stuck in there,” clarified the red-dirt-meats-alt-country artist. ” I didn’t really use (my middle name) until I was in my 20s, but when I was a kid and I got in trouble, that’s when I got all three names.”
Tonight, Wednesday, Jan. 27, McGraw-as in Sean Patrick–will headline Nashville’s Hard Rock Café, along with a string of hand-picked opening acts; namely, Ruth Collins, Brasher Bogue and David Kroll, respectively. (FYI: All poceeds from SPM’s CD sales at tonight’s show will be donated to the Haiti relief effort.)
The now Nashville-based entertainer, along with his four-piece band, will take the stage at 9:30 p.m., but the award-winning songsmith-whose debut CD for indie Little Engine will drop later this year-is quick to encourage concertgoers to come early and take in his talented openers, to be sure.
During a concert break at a casino in Minnesota, McGraw recently took time out to chat with Examiner.com about his career and schedule, including his Music City stopover-something that’s long overdue following a blockbuster year for the singer-songwriter that found him as the preferred opening act for superstars Toby Keith and Trace Adkins.
Herein is an excerpt from the chat, with an emphasis on the Hard Rock Nashville show.”
