When you're on the outside looking in, country music power couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw have the perfect life: They both have successful decades-long careers as some of the best-selling artists, and a beautiful family, including three daughters Audrey, Maggie, and Gracie.
However, country music's beloved couple did not always have it easy.
McGraw, who was born in Delhi, Louisiana in 1967, grew up thinking that his mother's husband, a trucker named Horace Smith, was his father. It wasn't until he was 11 years old that he found a box that contained his birth certificate, and it listed baseball player Tug McGraw as his biological father.
The "Live Like You Were Dying" singer eventually met with his father, who played for the New York Mets as well as the Philadelphia Phillies at the height of his career, but at the time, he showed little interest in having a relationship with him.
Turns out, being rejected by a parent is something he has in common with his wife.
Hill, who also born in 1967 in Ridgeland, Mississippi, was given up for adoption as an infant. A couple who lived in the nearby town of Star, Edna and Ted Perry, wanted a daughter to complete their family, so they raised her along with their two biological sons.
When Hill was in her 20s, she moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music and also look for her birth mother. She managed to locate her, and discovered that she was a professional painter. She also learned the truth about why her biological mother gave her away, and it's a far cry from what the Perrys told her whilst growing up.
