Why Famous: McGraw first came to fame with his 1994 album 'Not a Moment Too Soon,' which was the top country album of that year.

On top of his chart success, McGraw has won 3 Grammy awards, 14 Academy of Country Music awards, and many more beyond. In addition, the Soul2Soul II Tour—which McGraw headlined with his wife, Faith Hill—was one of the all-time highest grossing tours in the genre.
