Tim McGraw Standing Up Against Violence

Tim McGrawTim McGraw was honored in Atlanta Saturday night at the Men Stopping Violence awards dinner. Access Atlanta reports that Tim spoke about his involvement in the program from the podium at Atlanta’s Ritz-Carlton. He told the crowd, “I am a product of domestic violence. It is a learned behavior. I learned a lot. I learned how not to treat my wife, how not to treat my family. My wife, Faith Hill, is my inspiration and my partner in all I do.”

Tim is well known for not putting up with guys behaving badly toward women. At one of his shows he ejected a fan for treating a woman badly, telling the guy from the concert stage, “You don’t treat women like that.” At the awards ceremony, McGraw noted, “We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us. One of the most basic things we can do is let the men in our lives know it’s not okay to mistreat a woman. Every one of us has the microphone when it comes to domestic violence and mistreating women.” Tim also talked about what a personal cause domestic violence is, as a father, “I’ve been blessed with three beautiful daughters. They’re strong, like their mother. I don’t want them to ever be afraid to speak their mind.”
