Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Slay Hometown Crowd at Ryman and Announce Soul2Soul Tour

It was the announcement heard around the country music world. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill gathered friends, family and fans for a special performance at the Ryman Auditorium on Tuesday night (Oct. 4) to announce they would be heading back out on the road together for the 2017 Soul2Soul tour.

tim-and-faith-rymanTim and Faith kicked off the show with their monster hit “It’s Your Love,” and the crowd went crazy right off the bat. The couple welcomed and thanked the audience for coming out to the show.

“We are going back on the road—on tour,” Faith announced after the song. “We are going to go from side to side, South to North, all the way around the globe.”

“2017 we are going back on the road,” added Tim. “We’re going to do a Soul2Soul Tour. We’ve been looking forward to this for a long, long time.”

faith-hill-rymanFaith looked stunning in a very short, long-sleeved black dress with sequins around the cuffs and collar and sky-high stiletto heels. And to be fair to the ladies, Tim sported some pretty tight dress pants with a form fitting V-neck sweater and his signature black hat. The chemistry between the two was off the charts.

Following the announcement, Tim exited the stage saying “If it’s OK with you guys, the blonde’s gonna kick it in the ass right now.” And that she did. Faith took over the stage to belt out several hits, including “This Kiss,” “Mississippi Girl,” “Piece of My Heart” and “Cry.” Sounding better than ever, the Mississippi native broke into a soulful rendition of Aretha Franklin’s “Dr. Feelgood.”

Tim strutted his stuff on hits like “Something Like That,” “Humble and Kind” and “Real Good Man.”

Faith traded in the dress for a black pair of pants with lace top and joined her hubby onstage again to turn up the heat—as if it could get any hotter—with sensual renditions of “Like We Never Loved At All” and Bob Seger’s “We’ve Got Tonight.”

After 90 minutes of high-energy performances, the show was over and the couple received a well-deserved standing ovation. The audience kept the ovation going as Tim and Faith left the stage only to return for an encore performance of “I Need You.”

As the couple sat closely face to face, touching each other lovingly, it was obvious that after 20 years of marriage—their anniversary is Oct. 6—they still got it. We liked it, we loved it and we definitely want some more of it.

The Soul2Soul Tour kicks off on April 7, 2017, in New Orleans and ends Oct. 27, 2017, in New York. Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 14, with pre-sale tickets available Oct. 7.
