Tim McGraw was surprised by the Pandora team during a Zoom call recently with a Billionaire Plaque honoring his streaming milestone on the platform. This was the first time in Pandora’s 20-year history they have presented this honor virtually.
Presented by SiriusXM’s Storme Warren during the ‘Tim McGraw Fan Q&A Powered by Pandora and The Highway,’ McGraw was recognized for garnering over seven billion lifetime spins as he stands as one of the Top 25 Most-Streamed artists of all time on Pandora.
Surpassing over 12 million streams per week on Pandora, McGraw keeps the momentum going with his latest hit “I Called Mama” and forthcoming album Here On Earth due Aug. 21, as he remains in the 100th percentile of all artists on the platform.
“I’ve been so fortunate to do this as a career and have done it for so long. I’ve had 30 years in the music business, and it’s brought me everything good in my life,” McGraw said. “Music is such catharsis to me and has been since I was little boy. To know that maybe, in some little way, my music has been that for someone else, is all any artist really wants.”
