The 'Magical' Moment Tim McGraw Loves As An Artist (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Tim McGraw has won multiple Grammy awards and critical acclaim for his music, but this country star is still a down-to-earth Southern boy at heart. "I couldn’t tell you what a hit song was," he says in the above video from his upcoming appearance on "Oprah's Master Class." "I mean gosh, I’ve had tons of songs I’ve had to talk everybody around me into believing was a good song."

He's being humble. McGraw holds the record for the highest grossing tour in country music history and has had 11 consecutive albums debut at number one on the Billboard charts.

"It has to hit me viscerally," McGraw says. "I have to feel it. And sometimes it’s the melody. Sometimes the melody hits me and it doesn’t matter what the song says. Sometimes it’s the lyrics that just tells a beautiful story and doesn’t matter how it’s rolled out, it’s just a beautiful story. And sometimes it’s just something that feels good to you and so there’s not any sort of formula."

"Now, what's beautiful is when all three of those things come together," he says. "Then that’s something that as an artist you just think is just magical."

"Oprah's Master Class" with Tim McGraw airs Sunday, June 8 at 10 p.m. ET on OWN.
