Tim McGraw generally considers himself a good cook. In fact, it’s his famous homemade chicken and dumplings recipe that won his wife, Faith Hill, over in the first place. Additionally, the superstar says he makes a “pretty dang good country fried steak,” but when it comes to Thanksgiving, he leaves the cooking up to Faith.
“For Thanksgiving, I don’t cook,” McGraw explained in a recent interview with his record label. “Faith does all the cooking for Thanksgiving.”
It’s not that he doesn’t want to help, it’s more about staying out of the way so Faith can do things the way she likes.
As for their Thanksgiving staples, the couple keeps it pretty traditional for Turkey Day.
“We have to have turkey, we have to have our stuffing and we have to have cornbread and peas, of course,” he said.
Prior to Thanksgiving, McGraw will release a new compilation album, MCGRAW MACHINE HITS: 2013-2019. Out November 20, the project includes songs such as “Humble and Kind,” “Shotgun Rider” and “One of Those Nights.” It also features collabs like “Highway Don’t Care” with Keith Urban and Taylor Swift and “May We All” with Florida Georgia Line.
