Tim McGraw is teaming up with a famous Hollywood movie director but it's not for his latest acting role. McGraw will team with Moneyball director Bennett Miller for the next installment of the live-stream music series American Express Unstaged. The September 16 show – which will originate from New York's Hammerstein Ballroom – is taking inspiration from from an iconic television special. McGraw shares, "We got together in Nashville out at my farm last week. We just got to know each other a bit and drove around the farm in my old Jeep. We started talking about the intimacy of the Elvis comeback special from 1968. We both really like and connected with that concept, visually. I'm a huge fan of his work and I can't wait to see how this all comes together." The Unstaged concert, presented in partnership with Vevo and YouTube, will stream at amexunstaged.com September 16 at 9PM ET.
