Happy anniversary to the best person I will ever know Faith HillPosted by Tim McGraw on Tuesday, October 6, 2015
Eight years after their chart-topping 2007 duet and perfect first dance song, "I Need You," Tim McGraw and Faith Hill still need each other — and the country singer proved it to his wife yesterday by posting a romantic video to his Facebook page to honor the couple's 19th wedding anniversary, according to People.
In the video, above, McGraw, 48, reminisces about how he proposed to Hill so many years ago. "We were in the dressing room, here, June 26, 1996," he says as he walks through the room. "And it was raining and stuff, and we'd been on tour for a while together, and I joked around with her about getting married. And so I said ... I looked at her, grabbed her by the hand, and dropped forward onstage. She had already done her show and I said, 'I'm really serious. I want you to marry me.'"

Hill, according to McGraw's video, scoffed at the timing of his proposal. "She said, 'We're at a country music festival in a trailer house, and you're asking me to marry you?'" he recalls. "And I said, 'Yeah.' So I went onstage."
He performed his set, then returned backstage for Hill's response. "I had in my dressing room this foldout case that had a mirror in it that was my dressing armoire," McGraw says. "I still have it to this day. When I came back offstage, [I saw] a Sharpie with lipstick kisses all over it, saying, 'Yes! I'm gonna be your wife.' It had, 'I love you' with big lipstick kisses." He points, saying, "And this is the place right here."
Hill, also 48, was sure to give her husband a social media shout-out, too. She posted a photo of the couple posing on the red carpet, with the caption, "Celebrating 19 years today. Happy Anniversary @thetimmcgraw."
