Tim McGraw Switches it Up, Every Time

If you’ve been to a Tim McGraw tour show lately, or maybe even more than one, you may notice something different. McGraw and Faith Hill switch up opening acts for their shows each weekend.

“We wanted somebody different every weekend, because it kept it fresh for us as much as anything, but you want people who have inspired you along the way somehow,” McGraw said in a recent radio interview.

Throughout their upcoming tour, show-goers can expect to see Rachel Platten opening the show and Rhiannon Giddens on a handful of occasions. Others include: Devin Dawson, Andra Day, Maggie Rose, Natalie Hemby, Ben Rector, Brent Cobb and Eric Paslay.  This list of opening acts is set to be altered in the fall portion of their tour.

The Song That Had to Stay – Faith Hill

With hundreds of songs released between the two of them, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill had to go through the painstaking process of whittling down their catalogs for the “Soul2Soul Tour” set list. Tim tells Entertainment Weekly, “You’re never going to get to do every song that every person wants.” But when Tim almost cut his song “Live Like You Were Dying” from the set list, Faith wasn’t having any of it. She says, “I would’ve packed my bags and left if he’d done that!” Needless to say, Hill got her way and the song made the set list.

June 22nd: On This Day

On this day in 2000, Tim McGraw’s album A Place in the Sun was Certified Triple Platinum by the RIAA. The album was McGraw’s fifth studio project and produced four number one singles “Please Remember Me”, “Something Like That”, “My Best Friend”, and “My Next Thirty Years”.

The album hit #1 on the US Billboard Top Country Albums chart and the US Billboard 200, making it a crossover success.


Tim and Faith Help Reveal Another Baby’s Gender on Tour

For the second time this year, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have helped a couple at their “Soul2Soul Tour” learn the gender of their baby. The latest gender reveal came over the weekend during a tour stop in Moline, Illinois, with Faith telling Vikki and Rodney Kula the happy news as McGraw stood on the stage in the background. After the couple assured Faith that they wanted her to be the first to learn the baby’s sex, she opened the envelope and exclaimed to the whole crowd, “It’s a boy!” A video of the special moment can be seen here.


  • In April, Tim and Faith revealed a baby’s gender at a tour stop in New Orleans during the opening weekend of their “Soul2Soul Tour.”


Midland Teams Up with Tim McGraw for “Dixieland Delight”

Midland didn’t just get to open for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at their recent “Soul2Soul Tour” stop in Edmonton, Canada; the band actually got to sing with McGraw backstage at the show. In a video posted on Tim’s Facebook page Thursday (6/15), Midland can be seen huddled backstage with McGraw and his band as they perform a rendition of Alabama’s“Dixieland Delight.” The video can be seen here.

June 19th: On This Day

On this day in 2006, Taylor Swift released her debut single, “Tim McGraw”, to country radio. The song was the debut single and first published song recorded by Swift and was the lead single from her self-titled debut album.

The single received critical acclaim and helped begin Swift’s rise to fame. It peaked at number six on the US Hot Country Songs chart and number 40 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The track was Certified Platinum by the RIAA and has sold more than one million copies since its release.


Tim and Faith Show Off Their Private Island

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are showing off the vacation home they built on their own private island in the Bahamas. In a new article in Architectural Digest, the couple talks about purchasing the 20-acre island back in 2003 and the process that it took to build their dream home, which they didn’t move into until 2012.  Faith says they basically had to build a “little town” when constructing the home, including providing shelter and utilities for the original construction workers as well as the current caretakers. The family even stayed in a pair of seaside yurts during the decade the home was being constructed, which Hill says was “like camping.”


  • A new video shows highlights from the couple’s finished home, as well as Tim and Faith doing some cliffing jumping into the pristine Bahamian waters.

June 6th: On This Day

On this day in 2001, Tim McGraw landed his 16th #1 hit with “Grown Men Don’t Cry”. The song was released as the first single from McGraw’s Set This Circus Down album. Along with hitting #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hout Country Songs) chart, it peaked at #25 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it a crossover hit.

Country Stars Flex 4 Forces

Several country stars are showing their strength as part of the USO’s new Flex 4 Forces campaign, which brings attention to the USO’s mission of keeping service members connected to family, home and country. The campaign calls on the public to demonstrate appreciation to service members and their families by striking a biceps flex and sharing it on social media using the hashtag #Flex4Forces. That person can then nominate four additional people to flex next, much like the Ice Bucket Challenge did in 2014 to bring awareness to ALS.


  • Tim McGraw flexed his muscles for the campaign over the weekend, nominating NFL great Brett Favre to take the challenge next. Favre then flexed his stuff and nominated Garth Brooks, who posted a gym selfie showing off his big guns. Garth, in turn, nominated tennis player Serena Williams to take the challenge next.
