Tim McGraw statement on Ted Perry’s death: “Faith’s father passed away last week at 88 yrs old. He was the sweetest, kindest most gentle man I’ve ever known……. No man in my life has ever made such an impact on me as to how to be a human, a father and a friend. I’ll never, in 10 lifetimes, be able to live up to his example, but man, he has set a mark that all of us should strive for. His legacy will live on through the 3 beautiful souls he raised, Faith and her brothers, Steve and Wesley… I’m sure a day will not pass for the rest of my life, that he will not show up in my thoughts. We all love you G Pa”

Faith Hill talked about her dad on the Pickler & Ben TV show in November, 2018: “We have always made one another laugh so hard, over the silliest things – the kind of laughter that you have in school or church when you always gets you in trouble.”
