FAITH Hill and Tim McGraw are moving house!
In 2001, the pair shelled out nearly $14 million for two parcels of land to create their own 750-acre Shangri-La a half-hour outside Nashville. They spent another five years making it Tim’s personal playground – complete with a shooting range, stocked fishing hole and a massive barn to hold his huge collection of cars and motorcycles.
But they’ve now put the vast, Franklin, Tenn., estate on the market for $20 million.
“Considering all the effort they put into making this one of the grandest spreads in Tennessee, it’s pretty shocking,” an insider told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“Tim just loves the property, but Faith grew disenchanted with it.
“He’s on the road performing concerts up to six months a year, and Faith and the girls are often left rattling around the 12,000-square-foot house and the huge grounds.
“And when Tim is home, he’s so busy tending to the place and playing with his big boy’s toys she hardly even knows he’s back.
“But Faith finally convinced him the huge estate was consuming them and their marriage.
“It breaks his heart to sell it. The home represented all the success they’ve had and everything he ever dreamed of while growing up poor in Louisiana.”
Insiders say Tim is perfectly content to let his no-nonsense wife call the shots.
After the heavy-drinking superstar swore off booze a few years ago, he pleased Faith by getting rid of band members who’d been with him since he hit the big time in the mid-1990s.
“Faith feared they were going to lead him back into temptation,” disclosed the pal.
“Now, some of Tim’s friends think she’s too domineering. But he just shrugs and says, ‘This woman keeps me away from my own worst instincts.’” At least Faith’s latest decision won’t leave them without a place to hang their cowboy hats.”
