Bennett Miller will direct this installment of the concert series. Miller directed Capote, Moneyball, and the upcoming Foxcatcher. McGraw called Miller “an incredibly talented director,” saying, “I know with his unique, creative point of view, this will be a really special experience for me and my fans on the day my album comes out.”

As for Miller, he said he is “looking forward to shooting this show in a way that will allow [McGraw’s] fans to get a little closer and appreciate him a bit more directly than they might ever have before.”
