(USA TODAY) Country superstar Tim McGraw is making news for the wrong reasons.
In a video obtained by TMZ, the singer and husband of Faith Hill appears to slap a female fan who looks like she's making a grab for his privates during a concert on Sunday at Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta.
