Tim McGraw credits the fact that he is alive today to wife Faith Hill. In an interview this week, Tim admits that he used to "drunk text" Faith Hill. And he says that was part of his motivation for getting clean and sober. Tim reveals, "I only learned how to text because back when I was drinking, I would get in trouble when I would call my wife and she would find out I was drinking. And then I started slurring my texts and I figured hell, I gotta quit drinking." Tim quit drinking about three years ago. "Faith has kept me alive," Tim told People magazine, adding that if not for his wife, "I'd be dead." Tim jokes that he plays the "Faith" role in his current movie, 'Country Strong,' as the sober half of a struggling couple, while Gwyneth Paltrow plays the old Tim -- a country star struggling with substance abuse.
