Tim McGraw Explains Why He Stopped Drinking

(Radio.com) Tim McGraw gave up drinking five years ago and he's still happy with the choice he made.

"I drank a lot from my point of view and I needed to stop," revealed McGraw, 45, to People magazine. "I felt quitting was something I needed to do."

McGraw exchanged the bottle for weight training and workout regimens. "Working out is a great way to go out on stage," added McGraw. "When I hit the stage, my adrenaline is going and I'm ready."

We're ready too. His new album Two Lanes of Freedom is set to release next week on February 5.

And while he is one tough and buff lookin' cookie, he didn't give up alcohol just for muscles and his music. He gave it up for his daughters, Gracie Katherine, 15, Maggie Elizabeth, 14, and Audrey Caroline, 11. more.
