The coronavirus has thrown a wrench in everyone's lives during the last couple months, including high school and college seniors who are missing out on their graduations and the parties that come with them. Tim McGraw's youngest daughter is 18 and was a senior this year. The country star opened up about the bright side of her being stuck in quarantine during this time.

"All the things that would be going on with [Audrey's] senior year, all the stuff that would be happening, we wouldn't be spending that much time with her right now," McGraw said to The Boot. "We wouldn't have the moments that we had with her this last six or seven weeks, or whatever it's been, to just hang out and be together.

"Hopefully, one of these days, we'll all look back and think, 'Thank God we have this time together, just to spend and connect,' because she's going to be gone [to college soon]."

McGraw and wife Faith Hill are at home with Audrey and their 21-year-old daughter Maggie, while their oldest daughter, Gracie, staying in California.

He went on to add that he's been taking some days off from his workout routine and enjoying Hill's cooking. "Faith makes great fried chicken," he said. "So we've had fried chicken quite a few times during this thing and I make the mashed potatoes."

Last week, he was a guest on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" and talked about enjoying quarantine.

"We're homebodies, it pretty much suits us to be home, but it's certainly interesting to watch," he said.

"I certainly feel for everybody out there that's going through... losing someone and being sick and losing their jobs and stuff. We're inspired so much by seeing these nurses, how hard they work in these hospitals, and my sister was a nurse, it's crazy to see the dedication that the front line workers have," McGraw continued.

"I'm glad that we're starting to look at other people and teachers and go, 'Wow, we really need you.' It certainly gives you a different perspective on people's lives."

Aside from staying home as much as possible, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
