Tim McGraw to Help Welcome the New ‘Tonight Show’ With Jimmy Fallon
Tim McGraw better dust off his cowboy hat! The country music icon will be a guest on NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show’ just two days after Jimmy Fallon takes over as its new host.
McGraw will join ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actor Bradley Cooper on the Wednesday (Feb. 19) episode, and we’re guessing he will have a lot to talk about. The singer released his new single, ‘Lookin’ for That Girl,’ last month in anticipation of his new album coming later this year, and he’ll also be hitting the road for his Sundown Heaven Town tour beginning in May.
McGraw will be part of a varied lineup of stars during Fallon’s first week as ‘Tonight Show’ host, including U2, Will Smith, Jerry Seinfeld, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire and Justin Timberlake. Fallon takes over hosting duties after Jay Leno officially ended his late-night reign on Feb. 6 with a final show that included another country music legend, Garth Brooks.
