All eyes were on Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as they walked the red carpet at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night (February 12). Hill looked stunning in a form-fitting red gown, while McGraw wore a sharp-looking tux with a red flower to match Hill’s dress.
Everyone wanted to talk to the country power couple, and McGraw and Hill stopped along the red carpet to chat with reporters. Speaking to Billboard, they shared what they were looking forward to the most that night.
“Just seeing how everybody presents their songs,” McGraw said. “We’re fans, we’re all fans. Everybody here is fans of music.”
McGraw and Hill were at the Grammys as presenters, and there were plenty of country performers as well. Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Sturgill Simpson, and others took to the stage that night to represent country music.
We’re sure that McGraw and Hill were looking forward to seeing their fellow country stars do what they do best. But according to the way they spoke to Billboard, they were also anticipating a performance by one major pop star.
Since the night was all about music, the interviewer asked the couple what the last song was that got stuck in their heads. McGraw answered, and surprisingly it wasn’t a country tune! He revealed that the last song that got stuck in his head was actually a song by R&B and pop artist Beyoncé.
“‘Don’t Hurt Yourself,’” McGraw said, which is the name of a track on Beyoncé’s album Lemonade. The track was a collaboration with Jack White, who is known as the lead singer and guitarist of The White Stripes. White happens to have some ties to country music as well…he produced Loretta Lynn‘s 2004 album Van Lear Rose.
But it turns out that McGraw isn’t the only one in his family who is a fan of the tune. “I heard that a bunch at my house!”
Hmm, we wonder who it was that was jamming out to Beyoncé’s music in the McGraw & Hill household? Was it Hill, their daughters, or all of the above? Regardless, it sounds like they’re all pretty big fans of Beyoncé’s music, or at least that one song in particular.

Now that the Grammys are over, McGraw and Hill are gearing up for the busy year they have ahead. Their combined Soul2Soul World Tour kicks off in April, and is set to be one of the biggest country tours of the year. After that, plenty of people are sure to have their songs stuck in their heads!
