Country superstar Tim Mcgraw is hoping to boost ticket sales for his Arena Football team the Nashville Kats' (corr) home games in 2006 when he launches the new season with a show in January (06).

The singer and co-owner of the Tennessee-based American football organisation will perform for fans on 20 January (06) with a host of surprise guests.

All fans who buy season tickets for Kats games will be assigned the same seats at the Nashville Gaylord Entertainment Center for McGraw's show.

McGraw, who currently records a weekly ditty for US TV's MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL show, headlined a similar show at the start of last season.
