Tim McGraw on Getting Sober and Newfound Healthy Outlook: “I Have a Busy Life, But It Is a Fulfilling Life”
Every woman in America has likely heard comments from her husband or significant other about how smokin’ hot Faith Hill is when she sings before NFL games. We just have one question, ladies — have you seen her hubby lately? Tim McGraw is looking super svelte these days, and the country star turned actor (who’s still a musician at heart) told People it was all about making crucial life changes.
“I drank a lot from my point of view and I needed to stop,” the 45-year-old said. “I felt quitting was something I needed to do. I didn’t feel I had any moral high ground with my kids in the long run.” Tim has three daughters with Faith — Gracie Katherine, 15, Maggie Elizabeth, 14, and Audrey Caroline, 11.
It’s been five years since the popular singer quit, and the folks at People witnessed firsthand what clean living and an intense workout routine can do for a bod. He and his band played some pick-up hoops sans shirts while at the photoshoot, and their exclusive photos tell it all.
“Working out is a great way to go out onstage,” the singer revealed. “When I hit the stage, my adrenaline is going and I’m ready.”
On top of a new album, Two Lanes of Freedom, due out on February 5, Tim says his future has never been quite so bright.
“I really feel like this new album is not a culmination of the things I’ve done, it’s a new beginning of the things I am going to do,” he said. “I want to enjoy my career and having my family. I have a busy life, but it is a fulfilling life.”
