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.

WHEN TATTLE mentioned a couple of days ago that Tim McGraw had announced The Concert for Sandy Hook Promise, with proceeds benefiting an organization with the crazy, un-American goal of protecting kids from guns, we wondered how that might play with a portion of his fans. Uh, not well. The Washington Post reports that McGraw (along with his openers , Billy Currington and Chase Bryant ) have received a backlash from gun-rights advocates. Tim's motives seem reasonable.

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.

IN PHILLY, we think we know Tug McGraw. The Tugger helped bring home the Phillies' first World Series championship in 1980, and that image of him jumping skyward from the mound, arms raised victoriously, is iconic here. He charmed fans on and off the field, boasting that he was a screwball pitcher who could be pretty screwy in real life, too. He spent his first nine seasons with the Amazin' Mets before he was traded to the Phillies after the 1974 season, and spent his last 10 seasons with them.

Late-night TV's nice men Everyone has heard about the David Letterman - Jay Leno feud of yore. The late-night talk-show scene is no less competitive, but the boys (and, invariably, they all are boys) in the game today aren't combative, says Jimmy Fallon . They're into mentoring each other, not feuding. Jimmy Kimmel "was great to me - when I came on he was very supportive," Fallon tells Billboard. "So I'm going to be just as supportive as I can be to [ Stephen ]
