Country music power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have their hands full raising three lovely daughters. Gracie, the oldest, is now 20-years-old and attends college at New York University. Their second, Maggie 19, is attending Stanford Univeristy in California. The youngest, Audrey 15, is in high school and living at home. McGraw claims raising their brood in Nashville helped give their lives some normalcy.
In an E! News interview, McGraw explains their secret for a successful marriage and family life,”I think, for us, being as normal as possible and raising our family and being in a family situation as much as possible.” The McGraw girls seem unaffected by their parents’ celebrity status. And Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are doing their best to keep it that way. During a Q&A for a Country Radio, McGraw shared ,”It’s just not anything that we’ve ever really discussed or dealt with. We haven’t talked to our kids about us being famous.”
All three girls can sing, but so far, only Gracie has shown an interest in performing. In 2015, she joined her dad on stage at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville where they performed “Here Tonight”. Gracie was hardly a newbie to the stage, at 18 years old she fronted an all-female alt-rock group called Tingo. The group performed publicly and cut some songs between college semesters, but it’s unknown if the band is still together and making music. Whether or not any of the girls follow in their parents footsteps is completely up to them. In a March, 2017 Hill explained to AOL.com, “As a parent you don’t want to stand in the way of their dreams…You want to protect them; you want to make sure they aren’t disappointed.” She adds, “Sometimes, it’s better to let your children go through things on their own and let them experience it instead of of saying, ‘Don’t do it this way, or you must do it this way’.”
Tim and Faith’s Message to their Daughters
Anyone who has raised a daughter can appreciate the message in Hill and McGraw’s hit “Speak To A Girl”. “You want some affirmation. You want some understanding. You want some equality, all those things you want your daughters to take with them when they go out into the world and expect not only from…their partner in life, but from their business associates.” He continues, “You want them to set a high bar for what they expect from those people and how they expect to be treated,” McGraw shared with Rare Country.
