Tim McGraw has made no secret of the fact that he’s been sober since 2008, but he got there thanks to a poignant moment with his wife of 24 years, Faith Hill.
In the September issue of Esquire magazine Tim recalls, “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 and thinking, ‘I have to wake the kids up.’ I 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.”
Other revelations Tim makes in the article, called Tim McGraw: What I’ve Learned:
“I didn’t know love could feel so good. Was it an emotion? Was it a lifestyle? Was it an imaginary thing? But love is all of those things.”
“And love is being angry. Love is not talking for a day. Love is getting in each other’s face. Love is accepting that I’m wrong. Love is a 360 degree thing. It’s not linear.”
“Ego always bores me. So I’m sure I bore people on occasion.”
The September issue of Esquire magazine features actor Owen Wilson on the cover.
