Singer Tim McGraw Performs At Half

Grammy Award-winning country music star Tim McGraw performed his hit song "How Bad Do You Want It?" during halftime of Monday night's game between the Redskins and Cowboys.

McGraw's performance, part of a tribute to Monday Night Football's 35th anniversary, will be made into a music video.

McGraw will also make his first foray into film acting when he appears in the upcoming football movie "Friday Night Lights."

"With me doing the movie, and then doing this-it's a lot of fun," McGraw said during a media session in the press box at FedExField. "I grew up loving football and this opportunity came up.

"As a football fan and a musician, whenever there is a time you get the chance to combine the two, you want to go for the opportunity. There are probably a lot of songs we could force it with, but this one was just perfect."
