Tim McGraw took time out from an event helping Duracell donate one million of their new Quantum batteries to firefighters as part of the company’s Quantum Heroes program to chat with Parade about what inspires him to give back, what his teenage daughters are listening to, who his heroes are, and performing with wife Faith Hill.

“My mom is my hero,” he said. “And my wife. She’s my hero because she raises three daughters and me. But my mom inspired me to dream when I was a kid, so anytime anyone inspires you to dream, that’s gotta be your hero.”

Tim is involved in a number of programs that help give back to people and communities across the country. The desire to help others was a part of Tim’s life long before he was a superstar.

“I came from a small community, and I think that was always part of what was ingrained in us growing up—that community helps community and everybody gets involved, and everybody helps the neighbor when they need help. I think that’s always been part of mine and my wife’s raising.”

As for his daughters, ages 11, 15 and 16, they are just as into music as their parents. But the three girls would rather listen to it than make it. Chances are pretty good that mom and dad aren’t on their playlist, either.

“Mumford & Sons is a big hit at our house,” he said. “One Direction, of course, is a big hit at our house. But certainly not dad. They don’t listen to dad very often.”

As far as performing with Faith, that never gets old. “She’s so good,” he said. “I learn something from her every night onstage. I think she’s probably one of the best singers in the world. Being onstage with her makes me better. I can’t just slouch off when I’m with her because she’s going to be on her game every night.”

Tim and Faith will return to Las Vegas for an encore run of their Soul2Soul show later this year. Tim’s latest single, “Southern Girl,” is at radio now. Read Tim’s full Q&A session with Parade.
