OFFSTAGE: Faith Hill Shares Holiday Faves With Oprah

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

There is so much Faith Hill loves about the holidays, like the homemade snack foods, the divinity cookies, the ornaments her daughters have made and the song “Little Drummer Boy.” She revealed all her favorites on Oprah.com and said her favorite of the favorites was bringing her daughter Audrey home from the hospital before Christmas. “She was eight weeks early, and originally we didn’t expect to bring her home until after Christmas,” Hill says. And she adds that her favorite holiday memory is the first Christmas she and husband Tim McGraw spent as a family. “Our oldest daughter, Gracie, was 7 months old on her first Christmas. It was one of the most memorable times of my life,” Hill says. Since the couple’s three daughters have grown, Hill’s funniest holiday memory is the year she and McGraw woke up in the middle of the night to put reindeer food (oats and glitter) outside.
