Friday (March 8) may have been International Women's Day, but Tim McGraw waited until Sunday to honor one of the most important women in his life. That would be his "incredible mama," Betty—and she deserves her own special post as March 10 happens to be her 71st birthday!

For those who ever wondered where McGraw gets his good looks, it's plain to see in the photo he shared to social media that he bears a strong resemblance to his beautiful mother, who hardly appears her age.

McGraw didn't grow up in the easiest of circumstances: He was raised believing that his step-father, Horace Smith, was his father, and only when he was 11 did he discover that his biological father was baseball star Tug McGraw.The two men did eventually forge a bond before the elder McGraw died; however, Tim has been vocal over the years about his mother's influence in his life.

That strong female guidance has served the superstar well, as he's led a happy life to date surrounded by wonderful women that he loves. He can boast one of the entertainment world's strongest and longest-enduring marriages (to fellow star Faith Hill, whom he wed in 1996), and is also a devoted dad to three daughters.

McGraw did pay tribute to all of these women on Friday, posting a collage showing off all those who are most important to him.


The singer may have wonderful genes from his mom, but he's also a fitness buff which undoubtedly helps with keeping up those good looks into his 50s. He is set to put out a book, Grit & Grace: Train the Mind, Train the Body, Own Your Life  in November, which will focus on his own personal health journey.
