(AP) - Tim McGraw and Faith Hill want people to accept that they have a solid marriage.

Hill says she wishes people would stop buying tabloids that say their 17-year marriage is breaking up and she wishes tabloids would stop printing it. She says, "Happy is good. I don't know why happy can't be a story."

McGraw and Hill have launched a residency in Las Vegas that will run for 10 select weekends through April. The residency challenges even the best of marriages, because the couple flies from Nashville to Las Vegas when they have to perform.

Hill says they probably won't do any more Las Vegas shows because their oldest daughter is in high school and they want to be around for her.
