On Tuesday (September 21st), Tim McGraw took to his social media accounts to share a special tribute to his wife, fellow country superstar Faith Hill, for her 54th birthday.

In the post, Tim McGraw shares a video of Faith Hill’s “Breathe” music video and his interview with Diane Sawyer in 2001 on Good Morning America. The journalist asked, “When you see that video every time it goes by, what do you think?” His response was simply that’s his wife. He also said that he wants to call his college buddies and tell them that he’s married to the singing icon.

Tim McGraw also stated in the post, “Hey baby, I still feel the exact same way even more so. Happy birthday! You caught up with me finally. I wouldn’t change anything for the world and I love you.

In spring 1996, Tim McGraw notably began touring alongside Hill during the Spontaneous Combustion Tour. The duo was quickly attracted to each other. Hill eventually broke her engagement to her former producer, Scott Hendricks, and began dating McGraw. Following the discovery of Hill being pregnant with their first child, the couple got married on October 6, 1996. Since saying “I do,” Hill and McGraw now have three daughters Grace, Maggie, and Audrey. 

Tim McGraw Admits He Hadn’t Gone Three Consecutive Days Without Being With Faith Hill

In a 2006 interview with Larry King, Tim McGraw admitted that he and Faith Hill have a pact to not be apart for more than three days. Tim McGraw also said that he and Hill talked about it before they even got married and it’s the way they wanted to live their lives.

The “Don’t Take the Girl” singer also clarified that it gets a little longer than three days sometimes. But, in general, it’s hardly ever anymore than that. When asked if she’s competitive with McGraw, Hill said, “I’ve very competitive but in a very nice way. I mean, I’m not competitive enough to say, ‘Cut their legs off; I want to be the winner.’”

Hill also said that she’s competitive in the way that she wants Tim McGraw to actually be the winner and support. She’d rather him come out on top than she comes out on top. “It really doesn’t matter. It’s not competitive in a bad way.”

Tim McGraw goes on to jokingly add, “Yes, it all goes to the same bank account, whether either of us gets it.”
