Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have to be feeling nostalgic today: their oldest daughter, Gracie McGraw, is officially 24. 

Faith Hill took to Instagram to post a sweet tribute to Gracie to honor her daughter’s birthday. On Wednesday, Hill shared one of her favorite photos of Gracie. However, the real kicker came in the caption — which seems like it came right out of a tender country song.

“This incredible young woman turns 24 years old today,” she began the post. “I cannot write this post without tears rolling down my face. We are so proud of you for being who you are, unapologetically. I wish I had that wisdom at 24 years old. You have taught me so much in the last few years that has forced me to reflect on how it must be growing up in today’s world with crazy parents like us.” 

For Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, they have much to be proud of when it comes to their daughter. Gracie has a fantastic singing voice and often shows off her chops on social media. 

Hill added, “Truth is…I really wanted to post you singing Celine Dion’s “All By Myself” where you freaking NAIL that crazy a– high note that blew my mind. Not once but multiple times. I’ll save that for another time.” 

On Instagram, she’s posted various videos of herself belting out some technical tunes. Moreso, she’s always been open about her dream to take the Broadway stage someday. Just glance at her Instagram, and you’ll see that she’s already preparing. Some of her Instagram videos include renditions of “The Wizard and I” from Wicked and “The History of Wrong Guys” from Kinky Boots

“We cannot wait to see what you do. It is going to be insane. The most important thing… is that you will always be YOU!!!! And that is something full-grown adults have a hard time achieving,” Hill continued.

Hill concluded the post by simply stating, “Happy Birthday my sweet angel. I love you.” Additionally, Gracie’s dad published a birthday post to his eldest. He shared a throwback video of the two of them on a road trip. In the clip, they’re both singing along to a song on the radio. 

In addition to the clip, he also fawned over his daughter with a teary-eyed message. “Happy birthday to my oldest baby girl,” he wrote. “I’m so proud of her! She is so talented and capable…she can do anything she sets her mind to…above all, she has a heart of gold, loves her family and friends unconditionally, she is simply a jewel in this world and I am so proud of the young woman she has become…Gracie, you make daddy so proud!!! I love you.”
