Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are not shy about their love for each other. They’re very open and proud about it.
They recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary and they’ve been sharing tidbits of their lives together online. The most recent installment was on October 14 when McGraw posted a photo of a mirror covered in lipstick. The central piece of the picture is a big heart with “20 years” inside of it.
This is a throwback to when they first got engaged. In 1996 in Grand Junction, CO at the Country Jam Festival, McGraw popped the question.
“I’d joked around with her about getting married, and so … I looked at her, I grabbed her by the hands before I went onstage,” he says in a video. “She had already done her show. And I said, ‘I’m really serious. I want you to marry me.”
“She laughed and she said, ‘We’re at a country music festival in a trailer house, and you’re asking me to marry you?’ And I said, ‘Yeah.’ So I went onstage.”
And what was Hill’s answer? It was an obvious one.
“Yes, I’m going to be your wife,” was scribbled in sharpie on McGraw’s mirror in his trailer along with lipstick kisses surrounding the words.
At the time, Hill was already engaged to another man, producer Scott Hendricks. Over the course of their tour together, they began to fall in love.
“If someone is going to judge my character because I was engaged to somebody and then I left him for somebody else — ‘Oh, okay, now she’s a sl** and a bad person’ — I can’t control that,” Hill told PEOPLE. “But I wasn’t about to let Tim slip through my hands.”
