Tim McGraw on Raising Three Daughters With Faith Hill
Tim McGraw recently spoke with his record label Big Machine Records about his relationship with all three of his daughters, whom he shares with fellow country superstar, Faith Hill. His daughters are Gracie (24), Maggie (22), and Audrey (19). During the interview, McGraw admits he and Faith were emotional when Aubrey left home for college last fall. Despite the distance, Tim’s tight-knit family continues to stay close by contacting each other often.
“We talk to our girls quite a bit. We’re a pretty close five-some, me and my four girls,” McGraw recalls. “They’ve grown up on a bus with us and all kinds of things. So we stay pretty close and we talk quite often, for sure. And I wouldn’t change that for anything.”
Also speaking about his family’s “normalcy” McGraw shares: “When they started school and when we were home, we didn’t talk about business. Their friends called us Mr. and Mrs. McGraw. They all knew us as Gracie’s dad, or Audrey’s dad, or Maggie’s dad. They sort of all grew up in the same community with the same friends. All their parents knew us.”
Tim further comments, “We were at PTA meetings, we were at football games, we were at basketball games. I coached softball. I coached basketball. We were part of their life, their community growing up. We made a real effort for them to not just to be part of our lives, but for us to be part of their lives.”
McGraw is currently set to perform at the 2021 Watershed Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington on from July 30th through August 1st. He’ll also be performing on October 9th at the Nugget Event Center in Sparks, Nevada. He also recently dropped Undivided/ I Call Mama live acoustic vinyl on June 12th.
