26 Years Ago: Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Reach No. 1 With ‘It’s Your Love’
Twenty-six years ago today, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill soared to the top of the charts. Their duet "It's Your Love," from McGraw's Everywhere album, hit No. 1 on June 7, 1997.
When McGraw was on his Spontaneous Combustion Tour in 1996, with Hill as his opening act, sparks flew, and the pair began dating. The singer says that he knew as soon as he heard "It's Your Love," which was not intended as a duet, that he wanted to record it with his then-girlfriend.
"We were dating at the time, and we were in the middle of a tour together," McGraw recalls to American Songwriter . "I remember I had a place out in Leiper's Fork [a rural community in Tennessee, outside of Nashville], and the bus was sitting there. [Producer Bryon Gallimore's wife Missy] showed up with that song, and we went to the back of the bus to listen. I instantly knew I was going to cut it. I played it for Faith and told her I wanted her to sing on it. We both really felt like we had something."
"It's Your Live," written by Stephony Smith, is the first of many collaborations that the couple has recorded together. The Grammy Awards-nominated tune held the top spot for six weeks, sold more than 2 million units and won multiple awards, including both the ACM and CMA for Vocal Event of the Year.
The "It's Your Love" video, however, captured the most attention. The couple had been married less than seven months when the song was released, but by the time they filmed the video, Hill was noticeably pregnant with their first child, daughter Gracie Katherine. Rather than try to conceal her large belly, Hill proudly showed off her pregnancy in the video.
"It's Your Love" remains the most successful single of both McGraw and Hill's careers; it was included in McGraw's 2000 Greatest Hits album, as well as his 2008 Greatest Hits: Limited Edition and 2010 Number One Hits records. "It's Your Love" is available for download via iTunes .

Flashback: Tim McGraw, Faith Hill Ignite CMA Stage With First Duet
By Stephen L. Betts
Stephen L. Betts
It was 48 years ago today (May 1st) that Tim McGraw was born in Delhi, Louisiana. While his father, baseball All-Star Tug McGraw, traveled the country as a relief pitcher for the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies, McGraw spent his childhood in the small Louisiana farm town of Start, where he was raised by his mother, Betty, and stepfather, Horace Smith.
Meanwhile, Faith Hill — McGraw’s future wife and fellow country superstar — was raised 110 miles away, in the similarly-named town of Star, Mississippi. The two chart-toppers hit the road together in 1996 for the aptly titled Spontaneous Combustion Tour, with sparks immediately flying. Hill called off her engagement to her former producer, and she and Tim were married on October 6th of that year.
As the first single from his 1997 LP, Everywhere, McGraw released the sweeping and romantic duet with his now-wife, “It’s Your Love.” The song’s impact on both singers’ careers was immediate. “It’s Your Love” took a mere five weeks to reach Number One on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. The tune was a Top Ten pop single, too, becoming the first major crossover hit for McGraw and paving the way for Hill’s international smash, “This Kiss,” one year later.
More than its chart success, “It’s Your Love” was a multiple award winner, taking home four ACM awards for Single, Song, Video and Vocal Event of the Year. The latter award was duplicated later in the year as both McGraw and Hill’s first-ever victories at the CMA ceremony in 1998, where the pair performed the song live. “It’s Your Love” was also the Number One country song of 1997, a distinction McGraw would revisit the following year with “Just to See You Smile.”
In addition to this duet, McGraw and Hill — who’ve since become one of country music’s most awarded power couples, joining the ranks of Johnny and June (and, more recently, Miranda and Blake) — have had hits with “Just to Hear You Say That You Love Me,” “Let’s Make Love” and “Meanwhile, Back at Mama’s,” among others. But Mrs. McGraw has shared her hubby with other artists as well, including Jo Dee Messina, Nelly, Def Leppard and Kenny Chesney.
The ultimate tribute to Tim McGraw came, arguably, from young fan Taylor Swift, who named a song from her 2006 debut album after him.

One of the world's most popular country singers, Tim McGraw is married to fellow country crooner Faith Hill.
Who Is Tim McGraw?
Early life and father.
Born on May 1, 1967 (though some sources say 1966), in Delhi, Louisiana, Tim McGraw is the son of Betty Smith (now Betty Trimble) and Tug McGraw. Tim grew up thinking that his mother's husband, Horace Smith, a trucker, was his father. The couple divorced when McGraw was nine, and after that, he and his mother were often forced to relocate around Richland Parish.
One time after moving, McGraw, then 11, opened a box that contained his birth certificate, which had his father's name scribbled out but listed the occupation as "baseball player." His mother eventually divulged that she had a brief summer romance with Tug McGraw, a minor league pitcher at the time. He quickly left her, though, and she married Smith when her son was seven months old.
Tug McGraw went on to make his name with the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies. By the early 1970s, he was the highest-paid and most popular relief pitcher in professional baseball. McGraw met him once at a game in Houston, but his biological father showed little interest in maintaining a close relationship. The baseball star had married and had two other children by then, though he and his wife divorced in 1988.
McGraw was initially angry at his father for not supporting him, but later forgave him, telling People , "He was 22 and immature when it happened." Ironically, McGraw had his father's baseball card taped to his bedroom wall even before he knew he was his father.
Early Musical Influences
Though he was raised in Start, Louisiana, a tiny town in Richland Parish, McGraw spent a good deal of time on the road in the cab of Smith's 18-wheeler. In the truck, he would sing along to country artists like Charley Pride, Johnny Paycheck and George Jones. "By the time I was six," McGraw related to Christopher John Farley in Time , "I felt as if I knew the words to every album Merle Haggard ever recorded." He also sang spirituals in church, and belted show tunes in elementary school plays.
Though he played Little League as a boy, McGraw had given up his dreams of becoming a pro ball player like his dad by the time he went to college. When he was a senior at Monroe Christian High School, he met up again with Tug McGraw, who agreed to pay for his higher education. McGraw graduated as salutatorian in 1985. Shortly after that he changed his surname to match that of his biological father, though he continues to consider his stepfather, Smith, as his true dad.
As a freshman at Northeast Louisiana State University, McGraw took pre-law courses after seeing the film And Justice for All , starring Al Pacino . But he ended up enjoying parties more than classes, and became more interested in music. He bought a guitar at a pawn shop, and within a year, he was singing in clubs around Monroe, Louisiana.
Soon, he decided to quit school and try his luck in Nashville. His father told him to finish school first, but McGraw reminded him that he had quit college for baseball. Besides, as McGraw noted to Dave McKenna in the Washington Post , "The only thing I learned in college was how to float a keg, and I didn't figure that was going to get me too far. So even though it was kind of scary, I wasn't giving up much. I thought I could make it." His dad continued to support him while he tried to rev up a career.
First Hit and Controversy
Landing in Music City in May 1989, McGraw had little experience in performing and no contacts. But the industry was ripe for smooth, handsome male vocalists, and he managed to line up gigs in Printers Alley clubs. Within a year and a half, he cinched a contract with Curb Records. His first self-titled album came out in April of 1993, but sank into oblivion. To drum up attention, the label sent McGraw on the road with his band, the Dance Hall Doctors, and his live act went over big. With power ballads and party hits like Steve Miller's "The Joker," he found his audience.
In February 1994, McGraw released the single "Indian Outlaw," and it quickly raced up the country charts and became a radio hit. However, it also earned him unwanted status as a novelty act, and attracted a bitter backlash from many who found it offensive to Native Americans. The lyrics included lines like "I'm an Indian outlaw/Half-Cherokee, half-Choctaw/My baby she's a Chippewa," and lines like "You can find me in my wigwam/I'll be beatin' on my tom-tom."
McGraw responded by stating that he had meant no harm, and that he had simply used the tribal names and other words for their rhyming qualities. The outcry also came as a surprise to the singer, since he had been closing his stage show with the tune for four years.
Despite McGraw's explanation of his intentions, Cherokee Nation leader Wilma Mankiller sent a letter to stations claiming the song exhibited "crass exploitative commercialism at the expense of Indians," stating that it "promotes bigotry," according to a Billboard article by Peter Cronin. As a result, some radio stations in Arizona, Nevada, Oklahoma, and Minnesota started refusing to play it. On the other hand, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians based in North Carolina wrote to McGraw's management company in support of the song.
Topping the Country Charts
Shortly after this brouhaha, McGraw's second album was released. Not a Moment Too Soon became the number one country hit in its first week on the charts. Also, three more singles off the effort topped the charts in addition to "Indian Outlaw." The album and the number one single "Don't Take the Girl," a melodramatic ballad, racked up awards from the likes of the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Television. McGraw was also named best new country artist by Billboard and others.
Not a Moment Too Soon hugged the top spot on the country album chart for 26 consecutive weeks and sold about eight million copies over the next few years. Immediately, McGraw was catapulted from playing honky-tonks to embarking on a major headlining tour.
The following year, in September 1995, McGraw released All I Want . Though it was an attempt to show more serious musicianship, the first single released was the jaunty "I Like It, I Love It." As he explained to Deborah Evans Price in Billboard , "It was a cool, fun, back- to-school song. It doesn't really say a lot. We put it out because it's a fun sing-along song, and it will call attention to some of the meat songs on the album that I really want people to hear." The song stayed at number one for five weeks and the album sold three million copies, but McGraw was largely passed over at the 1996 awards ceremonies.
Marriage to Faith Hill
Still, 1996 saw the successful Spontaneous Combustion tour, which featured country singer Faith Hill as the opening act. By the end of the tour, McGraw's personal life was sizzling as well, and he asked Hill, who has a laundry list of country music awards herself, to marry him. They were on tour at the time in Montana, and he popped the question in his dressing room, which was housed in a trailer. He later reminisced about the event in an interview with People magazine: "She said, 'I can't believe you're asking me to marry you in a trailer house,' and I said, 'Well, we're country singers, what do you expect?'"
Hill later accepted McGraw's proposal by writing "yes" on a mirror in his trailer while he was on stage, and the couple married on October 6, 1996. Their first daughter, Gracie, was born in 1997, second daughter, Maggie, was born the following year, and youngest daughter Audrey was born in 2001.
In the meantime, McGraw began to diversify in order to have options in case his popularity bottomed out. He formed production and management companies, and he and Byron Gallimoer coproduced Joe Dee Messina's debut album, which contained the hit "Heads Carolina, Tails California."
McGraw need not have worried: In June 1997, he spawned another winner with Everywhere , which rose to the top of the charts and included three number-one singles, including "It's Your Love," which he sang with Hill. That song made the crossover to hit the top ten on the pop chart as well.
Everywhere reflected a new stability in his life as a married man and father, and attracted the biggest onslaught of awards to that point. Among other honors, in 1997 "It's Your Love" was named Billboard magazine single of the year award, Radio & Records single of the year, and Country Music Television deemed him male artist of the year, in addition to bestowing upon McGraw video of the year and top video of all time awards.
Also, in 1998 he won awards from the Academy of Country Music for single of the year, song of the year, video of the year, and top vocal event, all for "It's Your Love," as well as winning Billboard 's country single of the year for "Just to See You Smile."
In 1999, McGraw's hot streak continued after the release of A Place in the Sun that May. It debuted at the top of Billboard 's album chart and spawned a number one country chart hit, "Please Remember Me."
The awards continued to pile up as McGraw won Academy of Country Music Awards for male vocalist of the year and vocal event of the year (with Faith Hill) for "Just to Hear You Say that You Love Me," and Country Music Association Awards for male vocalist of the year and album of the year as artist and producer, for A Place in the Sun, among others. In addition, for the second year in a row, a Radio & Records country radio readers poll award voted Everywhere the best album.
McGraw also collected several other nominations for A Place in the Sun from awards ceremonies to be held in 2000. To top it off, People magazine named him the "sexiest country star" that year in their annual issue devoted to dreamboats. Adding to his cache of honors, in 2000, McGraw won an Academy of Country Music Award for male vocalist of the year and his first Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for "Let's Make Love," a duet he sang with his wife.
The accolades and hits kept coming for this country music superstar. Both Live Like You Were Dying (2004) and Let It Go (2007) hit the top of the country and pop album charts. "Live Like You Were Dying" netted McGraw his second Grammy Award in 2004 for Best Male Country Vocal Performance. The following year, he and his wife received their second shared Grammy for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for "Like We Never Loved At All."
In recent years, McGraw has remained one of country music's most popular and enduring stars. He released Southern Voices in 2009 and Emotional Traffic in 2012. Around this time, McGraw fared well with "Feel Like a Rock Star," his collaboration with Kenny Chesney . The following year, McGraw received positive notices for Two Lanes of Freedom . "Highway Don't Care," recorded with Keith Urban and Taylor Swift , received two CMA Awards in November 2013.
McGraw went on to release Sundown Heaven Town (2014), which included the chart-topping country single "Shotgun Rider," and then Damn Country Music (2015), featuring "Humble and Kind."
While embarking on their joint Soul2Soul World Tour in 2017, McGraw and Hill put the finishing touches on a collaborative album, The Rest of Our Life . They continued touring into 2018, but the exhaustive schedule seemingly caught up to McGraw, who collapsed onstage while performing in Dublin, Ireland, in mid-March. Hill later came out to say her husband was "super dehydrated" and would not return.
McGraw has also branched out into acting. He appeared in the 2004 feature film Black Cloud, directed by Rick Schroder, and the 2006 family drama Flicka . In a supporting role, McGraw also worked with Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Garner in 2007's The Kingdom . Taking on a sports drama, he starred opposite Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side (2009). McGraw played a character closer to his real-life in Country Strong (2010), starring Gwyneth Paltrow , and later earned a prominent role in Tomorrowland (2015), with George Clooney .
Personal Life and Faith Hill
McGraw lives in a six-bedroom home on 200 acres just outside of Nashville. As he explained to Zimmerman in USA Today , "It's the most relaxing place in the world. We have bonfires all the time on the Back Forty and hang out on tailgates and pick guitars and have a few beers." He and his wife are away on tour frequently, but Hill never leaves without the children. "I love my wife more than anything in the world," McGraw remarked in another People article. "But boy, when she had our babies, it quadrupled. There's just something about the connection."
In late winter 2018, following the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, McGraw became one of the few mainstream country stars to express his support of stronger gun-control measures. After the sporting-goods store Dick's announced it would raise the minimum age for purchasing guns or ammunition from 18 to 21 years, he tweeted, "Thank you @Dicks for taking a stand to promote a meaningful discussion for the safety of our kids!"

30 Years Ago Today: Tim McGraw’s First Concert in Cedar Rapids [PHOTOS]
- Share on Facebook
- Share on Twitter
April 24, 1993 was the first time Tim McGraw ever performed live in Cedar Rapids. All of us that were involved in that show will never forget it.
The date above was when the 14th Annual KHAK Free Country Concert was held at the then Five Seasons Center in downtown Cedar Rapids.
First to the stage that night was the KHAK band Airwave. They were followed by a little-known artist that, at that time, most people coming to the show likely only knew as the son of former Major League Baseball closer Tug McGraw. I expect many didn't even know that.
The KHAK Free Country Concert always had a pre-party, that was held as a thank you to advertisers who helped us put on the free concert. Here's Tim with Julie and me before the concert that night. Tim and I both had a whole lot more hair then, Julie and I weren't married yet, and Tim hadn't even met Faith Hill.
McGraw's first radio single in 1991 had gone virtually unnoticed. Four days before the 1993 concert in Cedar Rapids, his debut album 'Tim McGraw' had been released. His single at that time wouldn't crack the Top 40. It was called "Welcome to the Club".
Two more unsuccessful singles would follow that year before Tim became a star with a new album, ' Not a Moment Too Soon ', that was released in March of 1994. "Indian Outlaw", "Don't Take the Girl", "Down on the Farm", and "Refried Dreams" were all on that album. Two went to #1, one to #2, one to #5, and one to #8. A superstar had arrived.
More on Tim McGraw and Cedar Rapids a little later in this story.
I mentioned earlier that April 24, 1993, was the 14th Annual KHAK Free Country Concert. Red-hot band Sawyer Brown was the headliner that night. They played Farm Aid in Ames earlier that day before making their way to Cedar Rapids.
To say this was a big show would be a giant understatement. Oh, how the people came. So many in fact that the Fire Marshall ended up having us close the doors to additional entry. The place was packed to the rafters. We hopped out of our seats to make way for others. It was one gigantic party.
Sawyer Brown played many other Cedar Rapids shows that decade and is the only act that played the KHAK Free Country Concert three times (1993, 1997, 2008).
Tim McGraw would return to Cedar Rapids again for a show at the Country Club on 6th St. SW and on July 6, 1995, he came back to the city again as a headliner. That same weekend, the All Iowa Fair and Music Fest at Hawkeye Downs had shows from Clint Black and the Oak Ridge Boys.
On October 19, 1996, McGraw returned again. This time, he brought Faith Hill with him.
Tim and Faith had been married 13 days before the Cedar Rapids concert.
After that McGraw show in Cedar Rapids, our venues simply were no longer able to accommodate the crowds his concerts draw. However, McGraw has continued to perform at many other locations around the state.
Back in the summer of 2021 as I prepared to bring Sawyer Brown on stage at the Linn County Fair, their road manager said to me, 'We've got quite a history with your station.' He's right and the same can be said for Tim McGraw. We've been here since the beginning of a career that's spanned more than three decades.
The next time you go to a concert, pay close attention to the opening acts. You never know when you're watching a future superstar and Country Music Hall of Famer, which Tim McGraw most certainly will be.

August 25, 2021: Tim McGraw credits Faith Hill for his wake-up call
Speaking with Esquire about his decision to get sober in 2008, McGraw revealed that he was "getting out of [bed] and going to the liquor cabinet and taking a big shot at 8:00 in the morning and thinking, 'I have to wake the kids up.' "
He called that his last straw, saying that he immediately went to Hill and told her what was happening.
"I went straight to my wife and said, 'This is where I'm at.' I was scared," he remembered. "She just grabbed me and hugged me and changed my life."
He credited her with helping him stay strong and sober.
"My wife always says, 'You're not scared of anything.' I say, 'Ehhh, one thing. I'm looking at it right now,' " he said. "I didn't know love could feel so good. Was it an emotion? Was it a lifestyle? Was it an imaginary thing? But love is all of those things."
McGraw went on, "Love is being angry. Love is not talking for a day. Love is getting in each other's face. Love is accepting that I'm wrong. Love is a 360-degree thing. It's not linear. They always say you're not supposed to fight in front of your kids. Everybody fights in front of their kids. That's part of the deal."
October 6, 2021: Tim McGraw and Faith Hill celebrate 25 years of marriage
In honor of 25 years of marriage to Hill, McGraw reflected on his proposal and the wedding that followed. He called it "the best day of my life." He also shared some new details, that fans may not have known before.
"25 years later and it's still the best day of my life. Thanks for going on this journey with me. Love you Faith ❤️," he wrote, adding that it took him a "few times" to convince her to accept his proposal.
McGraw continued, "We had dated for a while. I actually asked her to marry me quite a few times and she kept saying no. She said, 'I'm not going to get involved with another country singer, it's just not going to work out.' "
He said he finally decided to get down on a knee during a country music festival, hopeful that Hill would accept.
"They had these trailer houses set up. I'm getting ready to go onstage, and I had this sort of case that had this big mirror in it. She's standing there, and we're talking, and I said, 'Look, let's get married," he remembered. "And she says, 'You're asking me to marry you at a country music festival in a trailer house?' And I said, 'Well, it's pretty apropos if you think about it.' She goes, 'Are you serious?' And I said, 'Well, yeah, I'm serious.' "
He returned to the dressing room to find a message on the mirror from his future wife accepting his proposal.
"And we still have that mirror. And it was the best day of my life, that's for sure," McGraw said.

"You're used to getting up in the morning, taking kids to school, going to softball practices and basketball practices and cheerleader practices and all of a sudden all that's gone when your last one leaves," he told PEOPLE.
He noted that since their daughters left home, their house in Nashville has quieted down significantly. He looked back fondly on their lives together as a family of five.
"I miss the afternoons because Faith would always make sure something was cooking when they would come home from school," he said. "I miss them coming in and smelling what mom's cooking and being excited about having dinner. I miss the energy around. There were times when we had about 15 teenage girls in our house talking about boys and life and everything going on. We're still a really close family; we talk all the time. But it's difficult when your kids leave. All of a sudden they don't need you as much anymore. And I think it's probably more difficult for Mom."

TIM MCGRAW AND FAITH HILL ARE PART OF GEORGE STRAIT'S MEGA-TOUR
With country music's popularity having slowly but significantly ebbed from its early '90s high tide, George Strait and Tim McGraw have reacted by trying to get everybody in the industry to tour together in one show.
Okay, maybe not exactly. But patrons shelling out the $47.50, $35 or $25 per ticket to attend Sunday's so-called George Strait Chevy Truck Country Music Festival at Soldier Field will have a chance to be entertained for nearly 12 hours by seven main stage acts plus other, developing stars in Straitland, a carnival-like area outside the main arena.
The center stage names include western jazz band Asleep At The Wheel and six of today's most-played radio notables, including teen phenomenon Lila McCann, rising traditional-oriented favorite Lee Ann Womack, established hitmaker (and Mrs. McGraw) Faith Hill, along with three of the field's most prominent hat acts -- John Michael Montgomery, McGraw and the very archetype of the breed, Strait himself.
"It's kind of like a big rock tour," says McGraw, maybe the most under-heralded of Nashville's current major headliners. "It's like one of those (big) festivals they have once a year somewhere, but this one travels around."
The undertaking is so imposing that it employs two stages that leapfrog across the nation, one being set up down the road for the next day's show while Strait, McGraw et al. are busy performing on the other one.
Having won four awards with Hill at the Academy of Country Music Awards a couple of weeks ago (where Strait picked up two and Womack one), McGraw recalls that he had a part in this show virtually from the beginning, when Strait began forging the concept in 1997.
He signed on for prototype shows in Los Angeles, Dallas and San Antonio last year and says he was interested in participating because, "first, it's George Strait," and, second, it offered him "a great opportunity to be out in front of that many people at once.
"We figured that the package together, with George and me and Faith -- and John Michael and Lee Ann were added later -- was a draw (with which) we could be pretty sure of having 40,000 or 50,000 people a night, and it's been pretty much sold out everywhere. For the first show, in Phoenix, there were 71,000."
On the telephone from California, McGraw's voice is occasionally rivaled by another in the background -- that of year-old Gracie Katherine McGraw, who is screaming, laughing or chortling in the bathtub. Her father says the ablutions have been prompted by blackberries she has been imprecisely eating all morning, coloring herself purple from head to stomach.
McGraw and Hill lately have become a duet act in the vaunted tradition of such previous Nashville teams as George Jones & Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty, thanks to their smash single, "It's Your Love."
Asked if he and Hill entertained any concerns that in becoming so known for duet appeal they could risk reducing their two careers to just one, he says they will perform together off and on but avoid joint interviews.
"I felt like we had two strong careers going," he adds. "We wanted to kind of let them blossom on their own, and I think (we've) done that. Gosh, Faith's been away for three years (since her last album), and her new album just came out at number two (on the country charts), number seven on the pop charts. So she's back with a vengeance."
A working class native of Start, La., who learned in his teens that he was the son of major-league baseball pitcher Tug McGraw, the younger McGraw is a singer whose voice adapts to various styles so readily that it isn't always immediately recognizable.
The man behind it continually downplays his business acumen with jokes about his laziness and his wild college days, neglecting to mention that he was his high school class' salutatorian.
Asked if he thinks this mega-venture with Strait could extend beyond 1998, he says that so far it appears to be "working so well I can't see why they wouldn't want to do it again. But who knows? We'll just have to wait and see how it finishes out and see what everybody thinks."
