TIM MCGRAW may have Faith at home, but he's lost Faith in his record company. They're releasing another McGraw greatest-hits package even though Tim has made only one album since the last one. Billboard.com reports that the abundance, or should we say, redundance, of hits has McGraw apologizing to his fans. "I am saddened and disappointed that my label chose to put out another hits album instead of new music," McGraw said in a statement. "I've only had one studio album since my last hits package.

Tim McGraw is such a genial, good-natured entertainer, such a professional when it comes to playing host to a packed arena of hootin' and hollerin' fans, that you can almost forgive him his sins of soft-rock banality, crass commercialism and shameless pandering. Almost. On Saturday night at the First Union Spectrum, McGraw and his eight-piece band the Dancehall Doctors played a generously spirited 2 1/2-hour show. The highlights and lowlights included several covers of rock hits from the 1970s (including Steve Miller's "The Joker" and Elton John's "Tiny Dancer")

What Ozzy Osbourne is to devil metal, what Jimmy Buffet is to parrot pop - throw in, too, Jerry Bruckheimer's testosterone-filled flicks and the networks' second-tier talent shows - that's what showy country crooners Faith Hill and Tim McGraw seem ready to become: summertime perennials. The handsomely married couple's Soul2Soul tours, the production-heavy likes of which sold out Wachovia Center on Saturday, are quickly becoming annual events, even when there are no new recordings ready to hawk.

As he strolls into his dressing room several hours before showtime at the Westbury Music Fair, Tim McGraw looks like anything but the red-hot country star that he is. For starters, he's got no attitude and no entourage. What's the sense in having a multi-platinum album, Not a Moment Too Soon, with a couple of gold singles, "Indian Outlaw" and "Don't Take the Girl," if you're not going to get yourself an entourage to boss around? But a major star, he is. Not a Moment, his follow-up to a lackluster debut, hung on to the top country-album slot for six months, only recently dropping to its current number-three position.

Backstage in his dressing room at the Saginaw Civic Center, Tim McGraw opened a bottle of beer and asked: "How far is South Bend from here?" Wearing a wide-brimmed, black cowboy hat and boots with toes sharp enough to be lethal weapons, McGraw had just wrapped up a concert date in front of a packed house and posed for pictures with a delegation of teenaged fans. One of the hottest new names out of Nashville - his "Not a Moment Too Soon" is the top-selling country album in America, highlighted by the controversial hit single "Indian Outlaw" - McGraw was scheduled to climb back on the bus and head to South Bend, Ind., for an appearance at Notre Dame.

Festivals, concerts, movie screenings and more will be plentiful and better coordinated on both sides of the Delaware River this summer, officials said yesterday. One sign of cooperation: Camden's Adventure Aquarium is springing for the America's Birthday weekend fireworks that go along with the Wawa Taste of Philadelphia Concert (July 6). And no Philly complaints that Cirque du Soleil will set up its tents on the Jersey side (adjacent to the Susquehanna Bank Center) for the first time, for the premiere run of "Totem" May 30-June 23. The Great Plaza at Penn's Landing is mostly about freebie fun this year - including this weekend's Art Star Craft Bazaar, the 10-event strong Peco Multicultural Series on Saturdays and Sundays through August, and "Screenings Under the Stars" series of recent hit flicks on Thursdays in July and August (including "The Hunger Games" and "Silver Linings Playbook")

Friday Night Lights is already being ranked among Rudy, The Longest Yard, and Remember the Titans as one of the best football films of all time. The gridiron drama is now blitzing living rooms on DVD, and it's a winner. Based on the best-selling book by H.G. Bissinger, Lights looks at the real town of Odessa, Texas, where football is everything. High school football talk radio chatters in almost every scene, players get interviewed on TV in the preseason, and the coach makes more money than the principal.

"I'm from a map dot," Tim McGraw sang shortly after taking the stage at the Susquehanna Bank Center on Friday night, "a stop sign on a blacktop. " But McGraw, who took the stage to the decidedly un-countryish sounds of Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive," is defined as much by big-tent showmanship as small-town sentiment, sometimes to the latter's detriment. Two Lanes of Freedom, McGraw's 12th studio album, is his first since extricating himself from a contract with Nashville's Curb Records, his home for the previous two decades.
