Anyone else super excited!?!?!?!?!
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will tour together in 2017. The country music super couple made the announcement on Tuesday night (Oct. 4) at the opening of their not-so-secret show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
“We are going back on the road, on tour! We are going to go from side to side, north to north, all the way around the globe!” Hill told the Ryman crowd and also 22,000 fans tuned in to the Facebook Live broadcast of the event.
“We’ve been looking to this for a long, long time,” McGraw added, joking, “We got all y’all together just to tell y’all that, now we’re going home.”
The massive 65-city 2017 Soul2Soul World Tour starts April 7, 2017 in New Orleans, La., and wraps in October 2017 in New York City. Pre-sale tickets will be available starting this Friday (Oct. 7), with general on-sale on Oct. 14.
This is the married couple’s third major tour together, the most recent being their 2006 Soul2Soul II Tour that played amphitheaters nationwide. This run celebrates the 10th anniversary of that tour. Since then Hill and McGraw have shared a stage a number of times for individual performances and during a residency in Las Vegas.
The couple surprised fans Monday morning with a show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, announcing that tickets would go on sale at 10AM. Within minutes, it was sold out, and the assumption was that this concert was simply a way to celebrate 20 years of marriage. The country couple’s wedding anniversary is on Friday (Oct. 6), and they’ve been sharing photos and moments from their personal lives on social media for the last month.
The original McGraw/Hill Soul2Soul Tour came in 2000, when both stars were at the peak of their commercial careers. McGraw has been very active lately, releasing an album every 18 months since early 2013 and charting a number of songs at or near the top of the airplay charts. Hill has done very little touring and hasn’t released a single since 2012. Her last studio album was Fireflies, released in 2005. It’s not clear if new music will accompany the 2017 Soul2Soul World Tour.
McGraw and Hill have more time to make music now that two of their three daughters are away at college. The “How I’ll Always Be” singer recently talked to Taste of Country about 20 years of marriage, saying the most important lesson he’s learned is to “Listen!”

I thought this was super sweet and wanted to share with Faith’s fans! Plus who doesn’t love a throwback pic?
This video gives me chills! So proud of the fact that Faith was asked to be apart of this tremendous collaboration.
In celebration of “The 50th Annual CMA Awards,” CMA has created the biggest music video in Country Music history. Titled “Forever Country,” the single and accompanying music video features 30 CMA Award-winning acts. This single was produced by CMA Board member and CMA Award winner Shane McAnally and the video was directed by Grammy Award-winning director Joseph Kahn.
Good Morning America gives us a sneek peak of the making of the Forever Country Video.
In a historic event, 30 of country music’s biggest stars have come together to create a music video called “Forever Country” in honor of the 50th annual CMA Awards.
The star-studded medley features a fresh take on three of country’s most classic songs: John Denver’s “Take Me Home,” Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again” and Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always love You.” Denver, Nelson and Parton have all won the coveted title of CMA Entertainers of the Year.
“Good Morning America” got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the historic video. Watch it below:
Country couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will be the next celebrities to receive stars on the Music City Walk of Fame, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp announced today.
The pair will be inducted 11:30 a.m. Oct. 5 in Walk of Fame Park. Hill and McGraw will receive the 73rd and 74th stars on the Walk of Fame.
“Faith Hill and Tim McGraw both came to Nashville in the 1980s with big dreams and huge talent,” said Mayor Megan Barry in a statement. “Driven by their determination and a lot of hard work, they eventually found great success — and each other. Tim and Faith have made a big difference in our city, not only with their music but also with their generous contributions to many important causes. They deserve to join the many other incredible artists on the Music City Walk of Fame, and I’m looking forward to their induction.”
Hill has charted 14 No. 1 songs including “This Kiss” and “Breathe.” She has sold more than 30 million albums and is developing a new daytime lifestyle show based in Nashville.
McGraw has landed 41 No. 1 songs and sold more than 56 million albums. He’s also an accomplished actor who has appeared in movies including “Friday Night Lights” and “The Blind Side.” McGraw’s next acting role is in “The Shack,” which will be in theaters in March.
Walk of Fame inductees are recognized for their significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville and for contributing to the world through song or other industry collaboration. The Music City Walk of Fame was created in 2006 on Nashville’s Music Mile across the street from The Country Music Hall of Fame. Sidewalk medallions with the names of the inductees are displayed in a star-and-guitar design.
