Faith Hill Finally Says Yes
McGraw went on to talk about the exact moment that Hill relented and said yes to him.
“They had these trailer houses set up,” he said. “I’m getting ready to go on stage, and I had this sort of case that had this big mirror in it. She’s standing there, and we’re talking, and I said, ‘Look, let’s get married.’ And she says, ‘You’re asking me to marry you at a country music festival in a trailer house.’ And I said, ‘Well, it’s pretty apropos if you think about it.’ She goes, ‘Are you serious?’ And I said, ‘Well yeah, I’m serious.'”
“I came off the stage and went back into my dressing room and Faith wasn’t there, but I looked at the mirror. In lipstick it said, ‘Yes! I’m gonna be your wife,'” McGraw added. “And we still have that mirror. And it was the best day of my life, that’s for sure.”
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have three beautiful daughters together: Gracie, 24, Maggie, 23 and Audrey, 19.
All three can sing. In fact, their oldest, Gracie, stunned the world with her voice just not that long ago.
