Faith Hill Reveals What It Was Like To Film Love Scenes With Her Husband For 1883

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are one of country music's most famous couples. The pair first met in 1994, and two years later when they paired up for a tour, they became more than friends. The two began dating and made quick work making their relationship official. The couple walked down the aisle together in October 1996 in McGraw's home state of Louisiana, per Us Weekly.

Hill and McGraw's marriage has lasted over 25 years at the time of writing, and they share three daughters together: Grace, Maggie, and Aubrey. Over the years, they've worked together in the music business by singing duets such as "It's Your Love," "Like We Never Loved at All," "Angry All the Time," and more (via Taste of Country). The couple have also toured together over the years.

However, they took on a very special task together when they both signed on for roles in the "Yellowstone" prequel series "1883."

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill enjoyed working together

According to Hello! Magazine, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill were tapped to play the characters of James and Margaret Dutton in "1883." The prequel series tells the story of the first-generation Dutton family as they braved the Oregon Trail and headed through America's Great Plains. Along the way, the Duttons find death and despair, as well as hope and joy. "The Duttons are a formidable family and it is an absolute dream to bring such a strong female character like Margaret Dutton to life. I am humbled and honored to work with Taylor [Sheridan] and his entire team," Hill previously said of the role.

Of course, playing a married couple on the screen should have been a breeze for the real-life spouses. McGraw previously told People that it was "incredible to do scenes together," except for the time that Hill had to slap her husband across the face for the show.

"I was expecting a finger slap, but it was a paw to the jaw. There was 25 years of pent-up aggression going on," the "Don't Take the Girl" singer joked. "When you see it on screen, you realize it was a genuine hit." Meanwhile, Hill also admitted that filming with her husband was a bit more difficult than she thought it would be, especially when it came to their love scenes.

Faith Hill admits she was nervous about filming steamy scenes

Yahoo! reports that Faith Hill and Tim McGraw loved working together during their time filming the "Yellowstone" prequel series "1883." The spouses didn't shy away from showing some difficult parts of marriage during the series. However, it was the love scenes that left the "Wild One" songbird feeling a bit uncomfortable.

Hill previously told Entertainment Tonight that it was a little tough to film the steamy scenes with McGraw, despite their real-life relationship, because she's a very "modest" person. "They made it easier than I thought it was gonna be," she later confessed. Meanwhile, McGraw revealed that working with his wife was great because they were able to lean on one another during the long and difficult filming process. "Being able to work together and do the same thing and feed off each other and talk about it and give each other feedback — and criticism too when it needs to be there," he explained.

Of course, the duo knows how to keep a good work-life balance, confessing that they never bring their work home with them. Hill previously revealed to Stephen Colbert that the couple agreed that they wouldn't run lines together (via iHeart Country). Fans can watch McGraw and Hill as the Duttons in "1883," which is currently streaming on Paramount+.
