Tim McGraw: 'Quitting drinking was something I needed to do'

By
Tim McGraw has confessed that he previously had a drinking problem.

The country music star, who is married to Faith Hill, revealed that he chose to give up alcohol in order to improve his relationship with his children and to set a good example for decisions he hopes they will make as they get older.

"I drank a lot from my point of view and I needed to stop," McGraw explained to People.

"I felt quitting was something I needed to do. I didn't feel I had any moral high ground with my kids in the long run."

He added that adding a regular workout to his daily schedule helped when quitting drinking and also got him in better shape, saying: "Working out is a great way to go out on stage. When I hit the stage, my adrenaline is going and I'm ready."

McGraw recently announced plans to host a charity concert to air on CBS to benefit the ACM Changing Lives organisation.
