Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are more in love that ever after 20 years of marriage. In a new interview with Architectural Digest, the country superstars shared the secrets to their marital success in an adorable version of the Newlywed Game.

“I love her. She just brightens every room she walks into, especially mine,” McGraw, 49, said when asked about the best part of living with his wife.

Hill, 49, joked that her husband has a habit of missing the hamper, which he didn’t deny.

“Just say yes ma’am a lot,” McGraw mused when prompted to reveal the key to a happy marriage.

Hill disagreed, explaining that the secret to happiness is “not saying yes all the time.”

The singers first met and fell in love while touring back in 1996. McGraw described the chance meeting after being inducted into Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame in October 2016. “I went on a tour called the Spontaneous Combustion Tour, and I had a really hot chick on the road with me!” he shared during his acceptance speech. “I fought and I fought and I fought to stay away from her, as long as I could. And that lasted about as long as her job at McDonald’s. I’m not gonna go into detail, but it was a great tour, I can tell you that!”

The duo married in October 1996, and went on to have three daughters: Gracie, 19, Maggie, 18, and Audrey, 15. On May 9, the pair kicked off their Soul2Soul world tour in New Orleans.
