Tim McGraw Puts in Plenty of ‘Air Time’ for Family
He's a country music superstar, movie star and author. But Tim McGraw says all of that is secondary to his wife, Faith Hill, and their three daughters, Gracie, Maggie and Audrey. Kicking off his Southern Voice tour this week, Tim's top priority is and will always be his girls.
"Family is right up there first -- the kid's schedule and all of the things they're doing," he tells Omaha.com. "After that, everything else finds its place."
Tim has found a way to make it all work, thanks in part to his supportive spouse. "My wife is very good at organization, so she has all the kid's schedules, her schedule, her mom's schedule, all the extracurricular activities and my schedule all lined up."
Once happy to ride a bus from city to city, Tim says those days are now a thing of the past. Doing mostly weekend shows until the girls are on summer break and will join him on the road, he makes sure to spend time with his family even when he has a rare show during the week. "Even days when the kids are in school, I won't leave home until four or five in the afternoon and fly in and do the show and then fly home. It's a lot of air time."
In addition to touring and working on a new album, Tim is also spending time shooting a new movie, 'Love Don't Let Me Down,' with Oscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow. Thankfully, the movie keeps him close to home. "The great thing about it is that they looked all over the country for different places and ended up picking Nashville to shoot it," Tim reports. "That made my life so much easier."
