Tim McGraw in Awe of ‘Changed’ Eldest Daughter
Who doesn’t remember the No. 1 duet, ‘It’s Your Love,’ that Tim McGraw sang with his new bride, Faith Hill, in 1997 — or the beautiful accompanying award-winning video that featured a very pregnant Faith serenading her husband in a medieval castle? Faith was carrying their first child when the video was shot in late 1996, and today daughter Gracie is 14 years old and the apple of her father’s eye.
“She’s changed,” Tim tells CMT. “She just grew up all of the sudden, in the last year. She’s 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7 and looks like a beach volleyball player.”
The big sister to siblings Maggie and Audrey may not follow in her parent’s musical footsteps, but she already has her eyes set on another kind of stage. “She plays lacrosse, but she’s really, really involved in school theater,” the multi-platinum selling singer adds. “That’s her main focus, besides school.”
Dad Tim has enjoyed his own success as an actor, with credits including huge blockbuster films ‘The Blind Side‘ and ‘Country Strong.’ But while he enjoys a multi-faceted career, the tunesmith insists everything is secondary compared to time with his wife and daughters.
“Family is right up there first — the kid’s schedule and all of the things they’re doing. After that, everything else finds its place,” he insists. “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.”
Tim will next appear opposite William H. Macy, Milla Jovovich and Dwight Yoakam in the film, ‘Dirty Girl,’ which hits theaters August 5. He is currently crossing the country on his Emotional Traffic tour, which takes him to West Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania this week. Keep track of his concert schedule here.
