See Tim McGraw's Loving Birthday Tribute to "Best Friend" Faith Hill

And indeed, while the 56-year-old said his wife dealt with some “wild years,” as Zane put it, before Tim became sober in 2008, he said she was a big force behind that decision. 

“I don’t know if the maturity’s occurred yet,” he joked. “But she put up with it for a while because I was pretty sneaky about it for a while. But it was just overdoing stuff. I think when the kids got old enough that they could notice things is when she finally said, ‘You’ve got to figure this out.'”

And while the couple have each had more than successful music and acting careers, both individually and together, the “I Like It” singer affirmed that their family will always be a pillar in his life—with or without the fame. 

“We have a confidence in our life. We have a confidence in our foundation,” he added. “All of this could go away and we’re perfectly happy with the five of us.”
