Being a country superstar, living life in the fast lane is nothing new to Tim McGraw. Recently, however, McGraw's been quite fast behind the wheel, too.

Participating in the National Geographic Channel hot rod documentary "Breaking Barriers," McGraw was privileged to drive the Venom GT Spyder (in fact, one belonging to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler) for the film. The subject of the documentary is the men who've attempted to break the land speed record.
