Tim McGraw is grieving over the loss of his beloved uncle Henry "Hank" Thomas McGraw. In a lengthy post shared on social media, the country singer explained in depth the impact his uncle had on him and the legacy he leaves behind.

"This weekend we lost the patriarch of the McGraw family," McGraw writes in the post. "Our beloved 'Uncle Hank.' He was just an incredible man."

"He had a way of lighting up any room he walked into without trying," he continues. "He was a no-bs, straight shooter. Honest and truthful, even if it hurt. A true renaissance man, All American high school athlete, 11 years professional baseball, played guitar, sang beautifully, was an incredible leather and bead craftsman, and more than that, he was a good friend to all who knew him, and he loved with an open heart.

"Aw man, and he told the best stories! He was and continues to be a huge presence in the lives of our family and his friends. He was a legend and that legend will grow with each passing year in future generations of McGraws! We will keep his memories alive!! He loved, he was so very loved and he will be terribly missed," he adds.

The "One Bad Habit" singer shared two photos of his uncle. The first — which almost looks like a painting — is an artistic piece featuring Hank sitting at a table, leaning over as he reaches into his sweater pocket. In his other hand is a cigarette. The second photo is a Hank McGraw's baseball card from his time playing for the New York Mets.

McGraw shared a pair articles about Uncle Hank in his Instagram stories. One is an in-depth piece from the archives of Sports Illustrated about his time playing professional baseball in New York. The second is a piece about his life and how he ended up settling down in Napa Valley, California.

Details about how the McGraw patriarch passed have not been revealed. Uncle Hank was the older brother of Tug McGraw who is the country singer's biological father.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have one of the longest running relationships in Nashville. After tying the knot in 1996, the couple are fast-approaching their 30th wedding anniversary and, if these photos are any indication, their love has only grown over the years.

The country superstars have been constant supporters of each other's music careers. McGraw and Hill also linked up for a duets album, The Rest of Our Life, and toured together on several versions of the Soul2Soul Tour.

The love shared between these two has spilled over into their daughters' lives. The family of five appear to be very close and regularly gather for meals and family get-togethers. After raising their three daughters, McGraw and Hill are now enjoying life as empty-nesters.
