Tim McGraw stopped by “The Tonight Show” to talk about the time his wife and co-star Faith Hill had to slap him in a scene for “1883”, the prequel western series to “Yellowstone”.
The country singer told host Jimmy Fallon that the couple wanted to do a “real slap,” not just a “TV slap.”
McGraw joked that he wondered whether Hill was actually upset with him on set because “after about the eighth take,” he was “concussed,” thanks to her Rocky [Balboa]-like hit.

McGraw, whose been married to Hill for 25 years, also told Fallon about how he proposed to the “I Need You” singer “at a country music festival in a trailer park” while touring with her in the ’90s.
The “1883” star, who plays James Dutton, the great-great-great-grandfather to Kevin Costner’s John Dutton, is currently playing shows on “The McGraw Tour 2022” and revealed he’s in the middle of recording a new album.
Despite Hill hitting her husband a little too hard, McGraw gushes over how his wife “elevated” his acting in “1883” in the full interview above.
