Local Girl's Wish Granted by Country Star McGraw

By  | 

When local 11-year-old Taylor Hobson dreams, she dreams big, and Wednesday her dream came true.

The Navarro Elementary student, who suffers from spina bifida, met her idol Tim McGraw.

The Make a Wish Foundation flew Taylor and her family to New York, where she met the country music star live on ABC's Good Morning America.

"It's a big deal, a very big deal," Taylor Hobson said. "I'm really happy for myself and Tim."

"As a parent anything that you can do that helps kids really touches close to your heart," Tim McGraw said. "We're in a position that we can do some things and help out in ways other people can't. We're taking advantage of being able to do that."

McGraw performed Taylor's favorite song "Live Like You Were Dying."
