Christmas is around the corner, and Tim McGraw spends days getting his family’s Christmas Eve meal prepared.

McGraw’s household also includes his wife, fellow country superstar Faith Hill, and the couple’s three grown children, Gracie McGraw (25), Maggie McGraw (24) and Audrey McGraw, who turned 21 on Tuesday (December 6). On Christmas Eve, McGraw and Hill invite extended relatives to join the celebration and enjoy the delicious signature meal.

“Every Christmas, our Christmas Eve dinner is homemade spaghetti and meatballs,” McGraw said in a statement shared by his record label. “It takes me about three days to prepare it and make it, and I let it slow cook for a long time. And the girls, they’re just always excited when that time rolls around, and it happens once a year. Our whole family comes over, my family and Faith’s family, and we have a big ol’ Christmas Eve, sort of a noon meal, so everybody gets time to get home and take care of Christmas. But that’s always special, and that’s probably one of the dishes that everybody always look forward to.”

McGraw has also been getting into sharing timely covers on his social media channels as the holiday season gets underway, including by sharing his own spin on “If We Make It Through December” by Merle Haggard, and “Christmas Cookies” by George Strait. The “7500 OBO” artist shared that his whole family is getting ready for the holidays.
