CURB/NASHVILLE artist TIM McGRAW made a surprise appearance at GRASSLAND MIDDLE SCHOOL in FRANKLIN, TN on FRIDAY (10/1). McGRAW came to speak about bullies and to ask the middle schoolers to be kind of each other. He encouraged the students to speak up if they see bullying behavior, walk away from bad situations and not to fall into the trap of becoming a bully.
McGRAW decided to speak at the school after being invited by his 11-year-old nephew, JACE JEWELL, a sixth-grader at GRASSLAND.
McGRAW told THE TENNESSEAN: "It's not really my forte. But after JACE asked me to come and speak about this, I got some of my talking points together. I think it's important for the students to hear. Anything I can do to stop bullying is what I'll do."
