Tim McGraw says he’s a drunken texter

Gotta Love This

“I just learned to text not too long ago, not too many years ago,” he admitted. “It was mainly because of drinking that I learned to text so I could text my wife without calling her (and) slurring. Then I started slurring my texts and I quit drinking.”

Country star jokes about his reason for quitting drinking.

Country star Tim McGraw knows when it’s time to quit.

He opened up to E! News recently about his decision to stop drinking, but it’s not for the reason you may think.

“I just learned to text not too long ago, not too many years ago,” he admitted. “It was mainly because of drinking that I learned to text so I could text my wife without calling her (and) slurring. Then I started slurring my texts and I quit drinking.”

McGraw, who actually stopped drinking several years ago, revealed in a 2009 Men’s Journal interview that he put down the bottle for the sake of his family.

Then he said he was specifically worried about turning into a no-show dad like his biological father, baseball player Tug McGraw, who denied Tim’s existence for much of his life. (McGraw and his wife Faith Hill have three daughters.)

“My wife sometimes says I’m a lot like Tug, and it’s not always a compliment,” he says in the Men’s Journal article. “I wasn’t 28 anymore. I had to grow up. I want to be home every night. I want to take my kids to school. That’s what’s important to me. Once I realized that, it was clear what I had to do.”
