Tim McGraw spoke to about who his hero is, raising teenage daughters (Gracie, 16; Maggie, 15; and Audrey, 11), his music career and getting back on stage with his wife, Faith Hill.

Some highlights:

On raising teenage daughters: “My 16- and 15-year-olds don’t want a whole lot to do with me now. They’re pretty busy with their social lives. But I think that’s an even more important reason to be home. Luckily, for me, the way I tour, I fly a lot, so that allows me to be home quite a bit.”

On what music his daughters are listening to: “Mumford & Sons is a big hit at our house. One Direction, of course, is a big hit at our house. But certainly not dad. They don’t listen to dad very often.”

Best of the Obscure Among 2001's Albums
Now that every computer and every apartment is a potential recording studio and every musician could be a do-it-yourself independent label, more than 20,000 albums are released each year, more than any single fan, radio station or critic could possibly assess fully. That means that richly deserving music can go unnoticed, drowned out by better-promoted albums or rendered inaccessible because it eludes the easy categorization that could make it marketable. Top 10 lists and end-of-the-year surveys invariably leave music critics dissatisfied, since so many other worthwhile albums linger largely unnoticed: albums on independent labels and, now and then, albums on major labels that were never treated as high priorities
