Tim McGraw learned to text when he was drinking heavily - he knew if he called his wife, Faith Hill, she would know he’d been indulging. But then even text messaging got him in trouble.
"I started slurring my texts and I figured, 'Hell, I've got to quit drinking,'" he told On The Red Carpet. "That's the only thing that's going to work.”
McGraw, who has three daughters with Hill, gave up alcohol in 2008. The couple has been married since 1996.
McGraw has been making the media rounds promoting “Country Strong,” which is in theaters now. Check out the EW.com review here.
