Tim McGraw Reminisces About His Proposal to Faith Hill on Their 19th Anniversary
Country music's cutest couple celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary yesterday, and it seems like they're just as happy as ever. To mark the occasion, McGraw posted a video of himself telling the story of how they got engaged, in the very spot where it all happened nearly two decades ago to his Facebook account.
"Happy anniversary to the best person I will ever know, Faith Hill," the 48-year-old crooner added to the post.
"We were in the dressing room, here, June 26, 1996," McGraw recalls in the video he took this past June at the Taste of Country Festival in Grand Junction, Colo. "And it was raining and stuff and we'd been on tour for a while together, and I joked around with her about getting married. And so I said ... I looked at her, grabbed her by the hand, and dropped forward onstage. She had already done her show and I said, 'I'm really serious. I want you to marry me.' "
Apparently Hill didn't take him too seriously at first.
"She said, 'We're at a country music festival in a trailer house, and you're asking me to marry you?' " McGraw says. "And I said, 'Yeah.' So I went onstage."
When McGraw was done performing, however, he returned to find Hill's answer waiting for him in the dressing room.
"I had in my dressing room this foldout case that had a mirror in it that was my dressing armoire," McGraw recalled. "I still have it to this day. When I came back offstage, I saw a Sharpie with lipstick kisses all over it, saying, 'Yes! I'm gonna be your wife.' It had, 'I love you' with big lipstick kisses. And this is the place right here."
Now that is a love story.
And it turns out that McGraw wasn't the only one feeling sentimental on social media. Hill (who celebrated her 48th birthday a few weeks ago) posted a red carpet photo of the two of them on her Facebook and Instagram accounts along with the caption, "Celebrating 19 years today. Happy Anniversary Tim McGraw."
