In a passionate throwback post, Tim McGraw is missing the Soul2Soul tour days he and wife Faith Hill enjoyed together just a few years back.
Initially kicking off in 2000 at the turn of the century, the couple’s first S2S tour was a smashing success. S2S sold close to a million tickets and grossed over $50 million. The tour sold out 60 of its 65 stops in the USA, as well. Wow.
From there, McGraw & Hill would return for Soul2Soul II in 2006 to similar results. Fast forward 11 years, and you arrive at the Soul2Soul World Tour. In addition, the 2017 tour was such a triumph that it extended well into 2018.
“Following an 80 date North American run of sold-out shows, Grammy® Award winning superstars Tim McGraw & Faith Hill are showing no signs of stopping as their critically-acclaimed Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017 extends into 2018 with 25+ additional dates,” the tour’s official site recalls. “The Soul2Soul World Tour – which is approaching 1 million in attendance on its initial trek – has consistently stunned audiences across North America with its sharp production, deep catalog of hits, and McGraw & Hill’s palpable chemistry.”
Tim McGraw Throws Back to Steamy Kiss with Faith Hill
From this S2S World Tour comes Tim McGraw’s chosen throwback on Instagram. Within, we see the duo passionately kissing, both wearing signature all-black looks from the tour.
The show was as well received – and sexy – as the married couple, as well. OF their S2S work, Billboard said “[The tour is] ENERGETIC and SEXY… it’s clear that the pair is IN LOVE and GENUINELY ENJOYS performing together every night.”
Furthermore, Rolling Stone said “The show’s TIGHTLY EXECUTED PRODUCTION was UPSTAGED ONLY BY THE COUPLE THEMSELVES. They are UNDENIABLY AT THEIR BEST when collaborating.”
And the Des Moines Register lauds that “Hill DOMINATED the stage with her BOMBASTIC vocals… Each brought something different to stage. McGraw’s ROCK-LACED NUMBERS provided the room with some ELECTRICITY. While Hill’s stage COMMAND and PLAYFUL CROWD INTERACTIONSmade the show feel PERSONAL.”
McGraw Is Still Going Strong
Some stars might fizzle out, or need a break, after decades of exhausting and wildly successful touring. But not Tim McGraw!
The icon is back with Big Machine Records full time after his split with Sony Music Nashville in February. Both parties are ecstatic to be back together.
And with his return to Big Machine Records this year, McGraw is laying down how his earlier hits with the label ‘parted the clouds’ for his entire career.
Posting a video interview to his Twitter account, country megastar Tim McGraw offers insight into how his early work with Big Machine Records defined – and opened doors for – everything that came after. The post comes in honor of his latest album, McGraw Machine Hits – a ‘greatest hits’ compilation of the huge songs McGraw recorded with Big Machine.
Which of Tim McGraw’s classics are Big Machine classics, too? Songs like “How I’ll Always Be,” “Humble and Kind,” “Truck Yeah,” as well as a brand-new version of “Redneck Girl” will all be on the album.
