Tim McGraw Jokingly Explains What Scares Him the Most

by Quentin Blount

Country music star Tim McGraw may very well be one of the baddest guys on the planet. But when it comes right down to it, there is still one thing that can scare him straight.

All of you husbands and boyfriends out there can probably relate to this one. What is more intimidating than your significant other? The answer, nine times out of ten, will be nothing. What the wife says goes and even a country phenomenon like Tim McGraw is no exception.

McGraw sat down with Esquire on Wednesday where he explained just that.

“My wife always says, ‘You’re not scared of anything.’ I say, ‘Ehhh, one thing. I’m looking at it right now.”

That sounds about right. Obviously, we know that Tim McGraw is joking here, but it is still a hilarious and relatable response for all the fellas out there. In reality, though, we know that McGraw and his beloved wife Faith Hill are deeply in love. They have been married to each other for nearly 26 years and share three daughters together in Gracie, Maggie, and Audrey.

McGraw and Hill are one of the industry’s strongest power couples, and they have been for decades now. Not only have they been married for almost 30 years, but they have also toured together and collaborated on each other’s music for large parts of their marriage.

When you know someone as intimately as Tim McGraw knows his wife, he is probably scared of her for good reason. But as the old saying goes, there are two golden rules to a happy marriage: 1) the wife is always right. 2) When you feel she is wrong, slap yourself and read rule number 1 again.

One Thing Tim McGraw Loves the Most

Okay, enough talk about what scares country star Tim McGraw. Let’s talk about something else that he really loves. If you are a fan of country music, then you know that Tim McGraw always rocks a cowboy hat while he is performing.

However, you may be surprised to learn that McGraw doesn’t actually spend all that much on his hats. Or maybe you’re not surprised — after all — McGraw does seem like a pretty down-to-earth guy. But he told Esquire that he doesn’t pay all that much for his signature look. He usually buys a black straw hat that is made by Resistol.

But why exactly does Tim McGraw wear a cowboy hat in the first place? Well, it turns out that McGraw wasn’t always comfortable with the way he looked.

“Of course, the cowboy hat is who I am in my music,” he said. “I’ve never been comfortable with the way I looked without a hat. I have what I call a ‘fivehead.’ I don’t have a forehead. I have a fivehead.”
