“They had these trailer houses installed,” he said. “I’m getting ready to go on stage, and I kind of had this case with this big mirror. 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 sangeet ceremony in a trailer house.’ And I said, ‘Well, if you think about it, that’s pretty fitting.’ She goes, ‘Are you serious?’ And I said, ‘Well, yeah, I’m serious.'”
“I came off the stage and went back to my dressing room and Faith wasn’t there, but I looked in the mirror. In lipstick she said, ‘Yeah! I’m gonna be your wife,'” the singer said. “And we still have that mirror. And it was the best day of my life, that’s for sure.”
Hill and McGraw share three children together: Gracie, 24, Maggie, 23, and Audrey, 19.
