June 1996: McGraw proposed to Hill.
For the couple’s 25th anniversary, McGraw posted a video on Instagram in 2021 explaining how he proposed to Hill.
McGraw recalled that he and Hill were in a trailer waiting for her to take the stage at an outdoor music festival when he said they should get married.
“He said, ‘Are you asking me to marry you at a country music festival in a trailer?’ McGraw recalls. “And I said, ‘Well, it’s very appropriate when you think about it.’
McGraw said he then went on stage to play his part of the set and when he returned to the trailer, Hill had written, “Yes, I will be your wife” in lipstick on a mirror. He said they still have that mirror.
