November 5, 2019 (Nashville, TN) – ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT exclusively spoke with Tim McGraw at his Nashville gym, TRUMAV, where he opened up about his incredible transformation and revealed that it all started with his wife, Faith Hill, telling him to "get over yourself."
"That's a big one," McGraw confessed, before noting that Hill wasn't the only one ready to whip his body into shape. His next "ah-ha moment" came when his daughter, Gracie, who was "11 or 12 at the time," saw him on a giant movie theater screen as the trailer for his 2008 movie, Four Christmases, played.
"My daughter looked over at me and said, 'Jeez, Dad, you need to do something,'" he recalled to ET. "It got me thinking, you know, I want to be around. I want to be around to see my grandkids. And I want to be around to see what these kids do with their lives, you know?"
"There's a certain amount of writing it off a little bit because it's part of the syntax of a relationship," he said of Hill's warning before Gracie's big observation. "And when your kids [say it], kids are so honest."
McGraw attributes some of his weight gain to the "musician's lifestyle." He later joked to ET that "all the other country artists are building bars and I'm building a gym." "Everything was good. My career was good," he remembered. "I was just pretty lazy in my life."
McGraw ended up losing 40 pounds, but for him, it wasn't about the weight -- it was about getting healthy. "I didn't start with gym memberships. I didn't start with trainers. I didn't start with any of those things. I started by walking every day," he revealed. "The more I walked, the more I wanted to do and the more I wanted to do bodyweight stuff. So, that gym stuff wasn’t part of my program for a while."
Tune into this evening’s ET for more on McGraw.
