Here’s how you can work out with Tim McGraw…and check out his new music, too

ABC/Image Group LAIf you’ve ever wanted to get in on one of Tim McGraw’s legendary workouts, now’s your chance — and you can help out a good cause too.

The “Thought About You” hitmaker has just launched a new Omaze campaign to raise money for the Neighbor’s Keeper Fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, which he and wife Faith Hill launched in 2004.

If you win, you and a friend will fly to Nashville, stay in a four-star hotel and have lunch with Tim catered by a private chef, in addition to a workout at Tim’s new gym, TRUMAV Fitness. Tim will also play you some of his new album, which is expected sometime this year.

You can find out more at Omaze.com/Tim.
