Tim McGraw was a heavy drinker, which is pretty common knowledge nowadays. Not many people know the specific reasons why he quit, though, which go beyond than just having a problem and doing it for his health!
Here's what he said happened:
"I just learned to text not too long ago, not too many years ago. 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."
Holy shizz! If you have a problem, you'll almost always find a way around a roadblock just to keep doing it. While he was being clever, we're glad he recognized the inherent danger in what he was doing!
We're also glad that he's in the best shape of his life now, and that drinking has nothing to do with it! His quality of life is now off the charts!
