7. Tim and Faith
Tim met Faith Hill on the Spontaneous Combustion tour where Faith was the opening act. The two formed a relationship and things escalated quickly! When they were performing in Montana he popped the question by writing “Will You Marry Me” in lipstick on the mirror in her dressing room. Tim revealed, “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?'” She accepted his proposal by writing “yes” on the mirror in his trailer and the two married in on October 6, 1996 and had their first daughter, Gracie only eight months after their wedding (a little fact of information they don’t like to talk about). Their second daughter Maggie was born the following year and their youngest daughter Audrey was born in 2001. The close knit family lives on a 200 acre lot just outside Nashville, and in an interview with USA Today, Tim said, “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. I love my wife more than anything in the world, but boy, when she had our babies, it quadrupled. There’s just something about the connection.”
