OFFSTAGE: Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood on What They’ve Learned

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

What have you learned to love about yourself, Tim McGraw? “I’ve learned that my instincts are usually pretty good and to trust them.” That’s what McGraw told People magazine. Other country stars weighed in, too. Carrie Underwood admitted that her husband is her best beauty secret. “I’ve spent a fair share of money on creams and makeup to help minimize my scars. Then I met Mike Fisher. He made me feel loved and beautiful,” she said, “scars and all.” And Taylor Swift reveals how she had to get used to year-round “untan,” telling the magazine, “I’m pretty pale. In high school, I was insecure and thought it would be cool to go to a tanning bed. Now I just let it look the way it looks.”
