According to a People magazine interview, Tim McGraw said he is not pursuing the 2010 Tennessee governor's post - at least, at this time.  "There's no truth to this," McGraw's representative told People. "It's something he is interested in but not for 2010.  Later in life."   

The New Republic reported earlier this month that McGraw was a potential candidate; however, he never publicly stated this himself.
