Remember when that fan grabbed the really important part of Tim McGraw's jeans and Faith Hill went crazy? Me, too. I remember it like it was yesterday, not 2007. And so does CBS This Morning. When McGraw was interviewed for a segment of the show that aired Friday (May 17), they had to ask. "The Mississippi came out in her," he said. "I liked it. I thought it was great. I thought it was hilarious, for one thing. But I thought, you know, that's my wife. And I expect that outta her. She's a tough lady. I'm married to her. I think of her as losing her temper, for sure." And who wouldn't have? It cannot be easy being married to a sex symbol, and I thought when it happened, I would've done the exact same thing Hill did. When Hill told the handsy fan in Louisiana, "Someone needs to teach you some class, my friend," I didn't think it was the Mississippi coming out in her. I just thought it was the devoted wife coming out in her.
