Tim McGraw is currently focused on Tim McGraw the country singer, but that doesn't mean he's done being Tim McGraw the movie actor.

"There are some things kicking around," he spills to Taste of Country Nights' Sam Alex during an interview to talk about new music. "It's just finding time ... more after the first of the year, some stuff coming up."

Yet, McGraw admits that those things that are "coming up" won't be seen by the public for awhile.

Country Music's Sexiest Male Voices

In the past, McGraw has had roles in films like The Blind Side, Country Strong and Friday Night Lights. But despite his impressive resume, he says he still has to audition.

"I've auditioned, still, a few times," he says with a chuckle.

For now, movie work is still just a side gig for McGraw, who just released two new tracks, "Neon Church" and "Thought About You," a song that conjures up many a memory for him.

"(Thought About You) just tells such a great story," McGraw tells Alex. "It really reminds me a lot of where I grew up and people that I knew and the people that influenced me along the way. It’s about people that don’t cross your mind enough but at the oddest moments, they cross your mind."

After spending two years touring alongside wife Faith Hill and doing a duets album, McGraw shares that both songs will be included on a still-unnamed solo album, set for release some time next year.
