Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have been happily married for over 20 years and even though they have become accustomed to each other’s little quirks, it doesn’t mean they don’t test each other’s patience every now and then, especially while quarantined together.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, McGraw revealed that one of his old habits is annoying his wife while the couple is self-isolating at their Tennessee home.

“I spent 30 years in hotel rooms going in and out, so I’ve never even thought about cleaning up, but she’s a neat freak, so she likes everything pretty clean,” McGraw confessed. “So I always get on her nerves about that.”

The superstar went on to explain that aside from his messy habits, he and Hill are pretty much like two peas in a pod. In fact, being quarantined together hasn’t impacted their relationship or family dynamic at all because they are typically “homebodies” anyway.

“Faith and I spend 90 percent of our time together,” he said. “We’re sort of homebodies. We don’t get out much and we always cook at home. We don’t eat out much.”

“We’re always around the house, so we spend a lot of time together anyway,” he continued. “But this has been really good. We enjoy just cuddling up and watching movies, TV series.”

The extra time at home has also allowed the couple to enjoy more family time with their daughters Maggie, 21, and Audrey, 18. Their eldest daughter, Gracie, who just turned 23, is keeping in touch with the family via FaceTime calls from Los Angeles.

“We’re doing well,” McGraw shared. “We’re spending a lot of time with family together. We have gotten to spend some time cooking and hanging out and just enjoying each other’s company.”

As for what they’re cooking, McGraw says he knows exactly who to turn to when it comes to advice in the kitchen.

“I call my mama to get recipes now, stuff that I remember as a kid,” McGraw said. “I think there’s been a lot of nostalgia during this, and that’s the same thing with food. We wanted to cook stuff that we grew up with, stuff that we remember from our childhood.”

Tim McGraw just debuted his brand new single, “I Called Mama.” The emotional track is resonating with fans everywhere and is the lead release from his forthcoming album on Big Machine Records.
