Country music is all about family. Country stars have kids and share their moments with all of us through social media and in the lyrics to some of their songs. While most country stars these days have young kids and even babies at home, many have children in their teens, and some who are adults.
Tim McGraw told us recently that two of his daughters are pursuing careers in the entertainment business. Tim’s music career spans over 30 years, and he made his acting debut on The Jeff Foxworthy Show over 25 years ago. He and his wife Faith Hill, who also acts, have some advice for their daughters.
McGraw told us, “You know, Audrey’s an actor, Gracie’s an actor/singer. She’s working on auditions for Broadway. And all we can tell them is, ‘Look, you’re gonna get a lot of no’s in this business. This business is more no’s than it is yes, but you try to learn from every audition you have, every door that’s shut. You try to learn from it, and you just try to persevere and try to gain experience from it.”
A year earlier, Tim spoke to us about his girls in a different interview. He offered, “It’s funny because Faith and I’ve talked about that a little bit, and I think we see each other in all three of ’em. There are little parts of us in all three of ’em. They’re all completely different creatures, but they all have big hearts, and they all are very polite, and they really respect people, and they all feel like they wanna make a difference in the world.”
He added, “Hopefully, we’ve instilled that into them. And we’ve always also given them the opportunity to sort of explore themselves and find out who they are and try things.”
We gathered up ten country stars in today’s music that have kids in their teens and adult years.
