Twenty-one years ago, country superstar Faith Hill kicked off the Super Bowl in 2000 with her performance of the National Anthem.
The best part? Faith Hill got to perform for her hometown team, the Tennessee Titans. It was the first time the team had ever made a Super Bowl appearance. Backed by a crew of bagpipe players and a line of drummers, Hill delivered a stunning rendition of the National Anthem.
Like the supportive husband he is, country star Tim McGraw (who’s married to Faith Hill) said the performance was his “favorite Super Bowl National Anthem.”
Nine years later, at Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa, Florida, Faith Hill performed “America the Beautiful.” That performance made her the only country artist chosen to perform both songs at the Super Bowl.
Faith Hill Supports Her Husband’s New Song, ‘Undivided’
Nothing brings people together like football. That said, sports rivalries can be one of the greatest (and probably most petty) things that also tear us apart. So, today as we tune in to watch the game let’s remember to focus on what brings us all together – the love of the sport.
Tim McGraw’s recent collaboration with country star Tyler Hubbard shares a similar message. Their song, “Undivided” encourages Americans to find common ground. During the song, McGraw and Hubbard sing, “I think it’s time to come together. You and I can make a change. Maybe we can make a difference, make the world a better place. Look around and love somebody. We’ve been hateful long enough. Let the Good Lord reunite us, ’til this country that we love is undivided.”
After the duo released the song, Faith Hill took to social media to share her support for her husband. Along with the single’s cover art, Hill wrote, “Proud of you guys! Thanks for sharing with the world what we need to be right now.”
