When country music superstar Tim McGraw made his first appearance at the WVU Coliseum, his career was just beginning. His single "Indian Outlaw" had skyrocketed up the charts and "Don't Take the Girl" wasn't far behind. Little Texas, however, was touring to promote their third album "Kick a Little" and their popular singles included "What Might Have Been" and "God Blessed Texas." Southern-rock trio Blackhawk, who opened the show, were known at the time for their singles "Goodbye Says It All" and "Every Once in Awhile."

The concert proved to be one of the hottest tickets in country music, selling out two weeks ahead of time, and the 8,500 fans who packed the Coliseum were not disappointed. Not only did McGraw perform those two hit songs but he treated them to new music off his upcoming album "All I Want." The crowd went wild for "I Like It, I Love It." The full album would be released the following September.
