Additional details on TIM McGRAW’s struggle with substance abuse have surfaced on the web. In his new cover story with Men's Health . . . Tim reveals until seven years ago, there weren't many times he went onstage without "something" in his system.

He says, "I drank too much. I partied too much. And did other things too much. Chemically. No needles or that kind of stuff, but . . . use your imagination."


Tim adds his wife FAITH HILL was the one who got him to stop, saying, "When your wife tells you it's gone too far, that's a big wake-up call."
