Country music’s power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are taking over The Voice.
For the first time, the show will have dual key advisors to prepare the season 11 finalists for the knockout rounds later this month.
“There’s no one I respect more than Tim when it comes to, first of all, song selection, stage performance,” gushes Hill about her husband in a clip (shared exclusively with PEOPLE) of the couple gearing up to take their positions in the infamous red chairs. “Truthfully, there’s no one, and I know he’s just my husband sitting right next to me and I don’t have to say this, but it’s true.”
McGraw and Hill will work with coaches Blake Shelton, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys and Adam Levine and their designated teams to give them guidance and prepare them for the remainder of the competition — and Hill believes “any comment from Tim is like being in a master’s class.”
“We both have a different approach to music in a lot of ways, and we like different kinds of music,” McGraw adds. “I think we would give a unique perspective individually as artists, not just as a couple.”
He continues, “Faith is just such a soulful singer and she’s not gonna sugarcoat anything, she’s gonna tell you what she really feels because she wants to be impacted emotionally by music, and she’s gonna let you know about that.”
And though the coaches may be some of the biggest artists in the music industry, even they couldn’t help but have a fangirl moment over the couple.
“I’ve been fangirling all day with these two,” jokes Levine.
The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
Recently Tim & Faith sat down for an interview with the Bobby Brown show. They have released the full interview for you to enjoy!
Tim and Faith announce new world tour and talk about how they met, first date and celebrating their 20th marriage anniversary live on the Bobby Bones Show
Faith & Tim talked with Extra last week about their new tour and their role on the Voice. Oh and if we will see “McGraw 2020”.
Tim & Faith first met at a radio studio event but then in 1996 Faith was the opening act for Tim during his Spontaneous Combustion tour. Sparks flew and the couple were engaged on June 26, 1996. Tim proposed in a trailer backstage of their show. Tim shares the story, “We were in the dressing room, It was rainy and stuff and we’d been on tour for a while together. I’d joked around with her about getting married, and so … I looked at her, I grabbed her by the hands before I went onstage. She had already done her show. And I said, ‘I’m really serious. I want you to marry me.’ “She laughed and she said, ‘We’re at a country music festival in a trailer house, and you’re asking me to marry you?’ And I said, ‘Yeah.’ So I went onstage.” When Tim came back Faith had written “Yes, I’m going to be your wife” in sharpie on the dressing room mirror.
On October 6, 1996 Faith Hill and Tim McGraw were married surrounded by family and close friends.
The couple have three beautiful daughters Gracie (19), Maggie (18), and Audrey (14).
Congratulations Tim & Faith on two decades together … best wishes for many more!
Yesterday Faith & Tim were recognized with Stars on the Nashville Music City Walk of Fame. Reba McEntire was there as part of the event to honor her friends.
Thank you to Claudia for most of these amazing pics from the event!
People shared the highlights of yesterday’s Music City Walk of Fame ceremony and the highlights of Faith & Tim reaching 20 years as a couple!
Could this week get any bigger for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill? On Tuesday, they played their first Ryman Auditorium concert to a rapturous crowd and announced their first joint tour since 2007. On Wednesday, each received a star on Nashville’s Music City Walk of Fame. And on Thursday, they celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary.
So what anniversary revelry do they have planned to match the rest of their banner week?
“That’s easy,” McGraw, 49, said in an interview after the Walk of Fame ceremony, and he motioned to his wife to announce their big plans.
“Okay, I will tell you,” Hill, 49, said. “We are going to be in sweats on the couch watching some TV show we gotta find.”
“We’re gonna binge-watch something,” McGraw added with relish. “And I’ve made a request, but I don’t know if I’m gonna get away with it or not — I want cornbread and peas.”
Hill’s deadpan expression seemed to suggest McGraw may be getting carry-out. “That would be me cooking cornbread and peas,” she said and paused. “We’ll see.”
After two such high-profile days, it’s understandable that the couple wants to kick back, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t proud of their marital milestone.
Twenty years, said Hill, feels “good. It feels like one, like our first-year anniversary.”
“I agree, baby, I do,” McGraw said. “It’s awesome. It’s an accomplishment, you know. It really is.”
And the added pressure of being a celebrity couple also isn’t lost on McGraw: “In our business, it really is like 80 years. I kind of look at it as ‘dog years.’”
Earlier, at the Walk of Fame ceremony in a downtown park, McGraw paid tribute to Hill in his acceptance speech, recalling that “the best thing that happened to me” occurred in 1996 when the two ended up on tour together. “I fought and I fought and I fought to stay away from her as long as I could,” he said, before giving up within a couple of weeks. “I’m not going to go into detail, but it was a great tour, I can tell you that.”
The event drew hundreds of fans, friends, family members, and dignitaries, including Reba McEntire, who separately introduced the honorees. (Hill’s history with the Hall of Famer extends back to a long-ago job at McEntire’s company, packing up fan merchandise.)
McGraw’s and Hill’s side-by-side granite stars are the 73rd and 74th to be awarded for contributions to Nashville’s musical heritage, and the city obviously is close to both singers’ hearts.
“We are a small community, yes,” Hill said in her remarks. “We are growing, yes, but we will always remain just good old-fashioned folk that welcome people from around the globe, and that’s what makes me so proud to be a Nashvillian. That is what makes me so proud — Tim and I both — to raise our children here.”
In his speech, McGraw remembered his days when he “sang all over this town.”
“That’s what we all did,” he said. “We all ran around together — Kenny [Chesney], Tracy [Lawrence] — we all ran around together and played bars together and we had a great time. … I knew when I moved here that whether I was going to be toting somebody’s guitar case or if I was going to be pushing a road case around, this is what I would be doing for the rest of my life. And this is where I was gonna live. I hope that I can grow old and die in my bed in Nashville, Tennessee.”
