OFFSTAGE: Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Cut Up

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

It’s a damn shame that Gerry House is retiring from his morning DJ job at Nashville’s WSIX radio station because I’ve never heard anyone get so many funny stories from Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. House reminisces about when Hill won a biscuit race at a local charity event, while McGraw talks about living in a house of women, saying, “I’m telling you what, I’m gonna start cycling soon. I’m moody once a month anyway.” Then McGraw and Hill get in a bit of a fight about who the opinionated one in the house is. It’s all in good fun, though. With all the banter, you can tell the couple will genuinely miss House and his long-running show. “I really don’t know what I’m gonna do in the mornings. … It’s sort of forces me to talk to my kids now,” McGraw admits, making everyone in the studio crack up.
