The country superstar, who has a new record called “Standing Room Only” and a tour that starts in March of next year, talked to PEOPLE for “One Last Thing.” Tim McGraw and his wife Faith Hill have found that there are some good things about being empty nesters.
Since their girls Gracie, 26, Maggie, 25, and Audrey, 21, are all grown up and living on their own, McGraw, 56, and Hill, 55, often go out on dates. McGraw tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, “We’ll cook a big dinner at home, light candles all over, and play ’80s music.” “We try to do that a lot. “Haven’t you been here a little too long?” they ask the girls when they get home.
McGraw talked to the magazine for One Last Thing:
My last game was
Our youngest daughter, Audrey, was at home with a few friends. After dinner, we had fun playing quiz games all night. Unless I’m wrong, I think Faith won. Or, even though I think I won, I should say she did.
Last great free day
I just sat on the beach with a good book and didn’t move from my chair for maybe eight hours. I have nothing in the middle. There isn’t much between first and 22nd for me.
The last time I saw a sunset,
Almost every night here at the house in Tennessee, we get to see a beautiful sunset. Early in my work, I saw a lot of sunrises I shouldn’t have, but I’m too old to do that now.
Last project you did yourself
Every spring, I go to the garden and buy two or three pickup trucks full of flowers, which I plant over the course of a week. My list of things to do myself ends there. If you do more than one thing and do it well, you have to do it again. I’m not an idiot.
Now, you can get a Standing Room Only. On Ticketmaster, you can buy tickets for McGraw’s tour, which starts in March.
