There are two industries in Nashville that folks consider to be huge, and that?s music and healthcare.

And Tim McGraw, who is passionate about both fields, has found a way to combine them.

The country star will be teaming up with entrepreneur and former CEO of the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, Michael Burcham, to become the newest board member of Michael?s latest venture, Narus Health, a company that aims to serve the needs of terminally ill patients.

According to the Nashville Biz Journal, an inspirational force was what led Michael to build the company ? which launched in 2015 ? after the death of his friend Tommy Cato. After learning about the vision to provide extra care and services to seriously ill patients, that same force “struck a chord” with Tim.

The ?Humble and Kind? singer, who lost his father, Tug McGraw, to brain cancer back in 2004, said in a press release, ?I remember all the decisions my dad had to make along the way, and the support system he needed throughout his journey.?

Perhaps Tim has been hoping for an opportunity like this to come along for a while. When Tug passed away, the singer released ?Live Like You Were Dying? ? a song that promotes making the best life you can.
