Faith and Tim often speak about how they are each other’s biggest support. Faith said “Tim inspires me every day in many, many ways. I draw inspiration from his assertiveness and from watching him being a father and a husband.”
While it was very clear that the couple were completely smitten by one another and had a relationship that would debunk the statistic of couples in the industry, they still had critics.

It is pretty uncommon for stars in the music industry to have both a successful career and relationship, but the two proved that this isn’t always the case.
In 2008, Tim appeared in the Oscar nominated film The Blind Side alongside Sandra Bullock while in 2010, Faith recorded songs for the soundtrack of the film Country Strong. Of course, Faith and Tim were there for each other, arm in arm, during both events’ red carpet.
McGraw’s role as Sean Tuohy, the father of Michael Oher in the film The Blind Side, came pretty naturally to him.
Tim said ““I’m very family-oriented. I’ve always been family-oriented. I came from a disoriented, dysfunctional family growing up. That probably instilled in me the need and want to have a strong family and a great foundation. That’s something I naturally gravitate towards.” He gave an amazing performance in the film and it was evident that he was able to connect with his character.
When parents become empty nesters and send their kids off to college, it’s a difficult adjustment for them to make. While Faith and Tim still had two more children had home, sending Maggie off to college was far from easy for the two.
Tim said “It’s beautiful and it’s sad all at one time, you know, you can’t wait for them to sort of see what they make of themselves and do with themselves when they get out from under your umbrella, but you’re also nervous and sad because you’re gonna miss ’em.”
During an interview with Oprah, McGraw shared what goes on behind all the closed doors at home. “We close our door at home we are husband and wife and a mother and a father.”
Tim also spoke highly of Faith, stating “I think about the fact that we’re married and the fact that we raised these three beautiful daughters. And then I think about having three daughters and having [Hill] for their mom. It’s a pretty cool thing for those girls to have her.”
