To prepare for his 50-60 city concert tour kicking off in April, country superstar and gifted actor, Tim McGraw looked to the one and only Martha Stewart to get him powered up and ready to hit the road. On today’s edition of THE MARTHA STEWART SHOW (Hallmark Channel, 10 AM ET/9 AM C – same day encore airing, 2 PM ET/next day airing, 1 PM ET), Martha passed along some energizing recipes from her new Power Foods book, to which Tim responded: “…the guys in my band, they need this bad.” Tim also talked about his newest competition in the country world…his Country Strong co-star, Garrett Hedlund. When asked if he thought Garrett was a star already, Tim nervously replied, “He’s not, but he could be now! It upset me a little bit…You know the saving grace is he’s so ugly!”
