Faith Hill seemed to step away from the country music spotlight a few years ago. She’s had one of the most significant careers in the genre in the early 2000s as a solo artist. And, of course, along with her hubby Tim McGraw, who continues to record and tour.
Faith did make waves and got some fantastic reviews and recognition for her acting portrayal of Margaret Dutton, playing the wife of James Dutton in 2021 in the Paramount Plus original series 1883. James was portrayed by her “real-life” husband of almost 28 years, McGraw.
Her famous husband wrote his thoughts on many subjects in an article Esquire’s “What I’ve Learned” feature. Tim discusses his family, his early life, and the fact that his wife, Faith Hill, helps him stay sober. McGraw quit drinking in 2008.
He also recalled that his wife Faith Hill helped him stay away from alcohol when he quit drinking. Tim said, “I remember a moment when I was getting out of bed and going to the liquor cabinet and taking a big shot at 8:00 in the morning.” He remembered that he went straight to my wife and said, “‘This is where I’m at.’ I was scared. She just grabbed me and hugged me and changed my life.”
Tim also touched on anger and that “love is being angry.” He noted that love is getting in “each other’s face” and accepting when you are wrong. McGraw shared that most parents fight in front of their kids. He said in part, “Everybody fights in front of their kids. That’s part of the deal.”
He concluded the piece by saying, “My wife always says, ‘You’re not scared of anything. I say, ‘Oh, one thing. I’m looking at it right now.'”
While we usually see Hill standing beside her husband when he is honored, like at the recent 2023 ACM Honors, where he was given an icon award, she does have some pretty big songs in country music over the years. As Faith celebrates her 56th birthday today (9/21), we take a look at eight of her biggest songs.
