They've been dogged by divorce rumors for years, but the dial hasbeen turned so deafening of late that Faith Hill felt the need to speakabove the noise.

She and her husband of 17 years, Tim McGraw, are "absolutely not" breaking up, she told People over the weekend.

Rumors"seem to be running like crazy right now for some reason. It'sperplexing," Hill, 46, told the mag after her and McGraw's Las Vegasshow. "I don't know why 'happy' can't be a story."

"Since thefirst week we were married those things were out," McGraw, also 46,said. "We don't even think about it. The only time we ever think aboutit is (when we) worry about the (three) kids. But they've been aroundit, too, so they laugh it off."
