After his performance, McGraw found the words "Yes, I'm gonna be your wife" written on the mirror with red lipstick. The couple said they still have that mirrors.
McGraw and Hill have not done anything the usual way when it came to their relationship. Their wedding was not long after the impromptu proposal but decided to throw a surprise wedding.
The couple invited their friends to a charity softball game in McGraw’s hometown Rayville, Louisiana, but got married instead.
McGraw said his sisters are still upset with him for not letting them dress up for his wedding but it was another fun and casual touch from the couple.
The couple reached a milestone and celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in 2016. Hill McGraw did not get up to anything extravagant, the couple decided to celebrate their anniversary in sweats while binge-watching television.
In their 20 years of marriage, the couple also decided on simpler gift giving. McGraw said they agreed for Christmas and anniversary gifts to not be more than $100.

When it was time to give being on the road a rest, the couple also had a 20-show residency in Las Vegas and gave people a show to remember together.
Hill and McGraw have had a successful marriage of 26 years, and the couple said the secret to keeping the spark alive is about balance.
The country singers met through music and that transitioned into their marriage. Hill admitted that a lot has changed since they started dating in 1996 but she said she is still in awe whenever she sees her husband perform.
Additionally, the couple’s careers have grown which means schedules have gotten busier. However, Hill said they always try to give each other space whenever they are working.
They have separate dressing rooms and individual daily schedules. But their romantic quality time together is still important.
For Hill and McGraw what is important is the pleasure of being together, and as they have gotten older the couple enjoys more intimate times at home.
