Tim McGraw has hit the big 5-0. says the country star's latest hit, "Southern Girl," has moved up three spaces this week into the number nine spot on the Country Airplay chart, marking his 50th top ten hit on the list.

"One Of Those Nights" spent three weeks at number one in March of this year, and "Highway Don't Care" - his duet with Taylor Swift - topped the chart for two weeks in June.
