Tim McGraw and Faith Hill to Receive Music City Walk of Fame Stars
Whether raising children or receiving huge country honors, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are a formidable team. In October, the Grammy-winning artists will receive stars on the Music City Walk of Fame in Nashville, Tenn., together.
Located right in front of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Music City Walk of Fame will get its 73rd and 74th stars when the country music power couple is inducted during a ceremony, set to take place on Oct. 5 at 11:30AM -- one day before their 20th wedding anniversary.
"Faith Hill and Tim McGraw both came to Nashville in the 1980s with big dreams and huge talent," Nashville Mayor Megan Barry says in a statement. "Driven by their determination and a lot of hard work, they eventually found great success -- and each other. Tim and Faith have made a big difference in our city, not only with their music but also with their generous contributions to many important causes. They deserve to join the many other incredible artists on the Music City Walk of Fame, and I’m looking forward to their induction."
Walk of Fame honorees are recognized for their significant contributions to preserve the musical heritage of Nashville and for contributing to the world through song or other industry collaboration. In every respect, McGraw and Hill certainly meet that criteria: For her part, Hill is one of the top-selling and most-awarded female artists in history, having earned 14 No. 1 singles, five Grammy Awards, 12 ACM Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, four American Music Awards, four People's Choice Awards and three CMA Awards. Not to be outdone, McGraw has sold over 56 million records and earned 41 No. 1 singles, and won three Grammys, 16 ACM Awards, 14 CMA Awards, 10 American Music Awards and three People's Choice Awards -- just to name a few.
Married since 1996, McGraw and Hill have three daughters: Gracie, Maggie and Audrey. As a family, they try to remain as "normal" as possible, despite their country careers.
“Our kids know [we're famous], and they’ve always been around it, but it’s just not anything that we’ve sat and discussed or dealt with. We haven’t talked to our kids about us being famous, even when they were little. I think they just sort of naturally let it all evolve …,” McGraw says. “We try to make it not an issue. We try to live our lives that way, too. We go to the grocery store. We don’t think about that … We sort of forget about it.”
