Tim McGraw posted a heartfelt tribute where he recalled the day he proposed to his beloved partner.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are undoubtedly one of the most adorable country music couples in Hollywood and they recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. To mark the special occasion, McGraw posted a heartfelt tribute where he recalled the day he proposed to his beloved partner. "25 years later and it's still the best day of my life. Thanks for going on this journey with me. Love you, Faith," read the caption of the swoon-worthy Instagram clip. "We had dated for a while. I actually asked her to marry me quite a few times and she kept saying no," recalled the 54-year-old. "She said, 'I'm not going to get involved with another country singer, it's just not going to work out.'"
Despite her constant reluctance, the Humble and Kind singer did not give up because he knew they were meant to be together. Ultimately his commitment paid off one fine day when he was preparing to perform at a large outdoor festival. "They had these trailer houses set up. I'm getting ready to go on stage, and I had this sort of case that had this big mirror in it. She's standing there, and we're talking, and I said, 'Look, let's get married,' and she says, 'You're asking me to marry you at a country music festival in a trailer house.' And I said, 'Well, it's pretty apropos if you think about it.' She goes, 'Are you serious?' And I said, 'Well yeah, I'm serious,'" he explained in the video.
Hill didn't seem to be quite impressed and McGraw left to perform his set. It was only after he returned to the trailer that he realized he was an engaged man. "I came off the stage and went back into my dressing room and Faith wasn't there, but I looked at the mirror. In lipstick, it said, 'Yes! I'm gonna be your wife,'" said the singer of the triumphant moment. "And we still have that mirror. And it was the best day of my life, that's for sure." Meanwhile, Hill shared a sweet post on her Instagram to honor their 25th anniversary. It was a video of a pair of jeans and red cowboy boots that were hanging on a jeep, according to TODAY.
The I Need You singer explained that she had worn the jeans in the music video for her partner's 2014 singer Meanwhile Back at Mama's. "I’ve had those jeans for 13 years, and while dancing one night recently, they split right down the center of my butt. And I’m gonna keep them, I’m gonna make it work, get them fixed," she said. "These red boots, I’ve had since I was in the seventh grade." She continued, "The metaphor about all this stuff is, you know, there’s gonna be good times, bad times, sometimes you’re gonna look your best, sometimes you’re not. Just the way life is, the way the world works. And it’s all about love, period, and respect."
McGraw and Hill's relationship is one of the most enduring love stories in the entertainment industry which started back in the 90s. They first met in 1996 when Hill was performing the opening act for McGraw's Spontaneous Combustion tour. The pair, both 54, got married in October the same year, according to Yahoo! News, and has since welcomed three daughters- 24-year-old Gracie, 23-year-old Maggi, 19-year-old Audrey. This isn't the first time, the couple has publicly professed their love for each other. Just last year for their 24th wedding anniversary, McGraw shared a beautiful message and described their time together as "a series of beautiful, painful and unexpected moments."
"U have been a role model for 3 remarkable young women who have made me a better man than I ever thought I could be. The future will surely hold more of all of these things," he expressed. "It only matters if I'm with you. It only works if I'm with you. My oxygen only exists if you're by my side. Forever and always living and loving our way through anything @faithhill."
