Tim McGraw Picks Up a Gun (and Takes Aim) for Charity

Originally posted 06/06/2012 01:15PM

It was a gorgeous, slightly breezy day in Nashville. There was a breakfast buffet stocked with muffins and fruit set up – and the sound of gunfire crackled loudly in the air.

Turns out, Tim McGraw had a specific target in mind.

"I'm going to take out Luke Bryan," the country superstar, and host of the charity Tug McGraw Celebrity Sporting Clay Shootout, said jokingly to PEOPLE Tuesday at the Nashville Gun Club. "He's a Georgia boy, and I'm a Louisiana boy, so I've got an advantage right off."

"But I'm a little rusty, so I'm aiming for Luke's foot," McGraw, slated to hit the road this weekend on his summer tour with Kenny Chesney, continued. "I think if I can take him out, I've got it."

Taylor Swift's 22nd birthday celebration was a mixture of business and pleasure. After spending time in the studio working on her new album, the crafty singer hosted a holiday luncheon for her record label, Big Machine. They, in turn, presented the Grammy winner with a European chocolate butter cream birthday cake with edible glitter from Nashville bakery Dulce Desserts. The cake also featured a layer of chocolate truffle and was covered in vanilla butter cream! Apparently the singer liked the cake so much that after her lunch, her mom drove to the bakery to request a smaller version to serve that night during a low-key bash for Taylor's friends. – Joey Bartolomeo and Kay West
