Country music's favorite couple are spreading the love far and wide.
Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill have announced their latest collaborative tour for next year; Soul2Soul The World Tour. The North American dates have been announced, with more to come for the rest of the world. The new run celebrates the 10th anniversary of their massively successful Soul2Soul II Tour.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are touring together again
So far, 65 dates have been announced for April through October 2017, kicking off at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana on April 7th and concluding at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on October 27th. The announcement comes off the back of the secret show the pair did at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on Tuesday (October 4th 2016).
Cast and guests arrive at the opening of new Disney sci-fi adventure.
The 'Tomorrowland' premiere turned out a lot of stars on the red carpet this weekend, with George Clooney bringing along his wife (predictably - this couple seems joined at the hip!) Amal Clooney as well as her angel-faced teenage daughter Mia Alamuddin.

Mr. Clooney was his usual dashing self as he hit the premiere of his latest movie, Disney fantasy 'Tomorrowland', suavely dressed in a black suit and chest-bearing black shirt, while wife Amal took chic to a new level with a youthful black and pink number - complete with shades to block out those rays, of course.
In Ellen's words, congratulations on this wonderful pineapple award!
Last night’s CMAs were definitely surprising in more ways than one – it was a rookies’ night through and through, with first time winners dominating the list, for starters. More than that though, let’s talk about the fate of one emotional blonde lady in particular: Taylor Swift, who surprised everyone by… not winning. We’re as surprised as you are, but everyone’s favorite country girl went somewhat overlooked by the Country Music Association.
Swift accepted the award in a gorgeous red gown.
Well, that’s not entirely true. Of course Swift received a huge honor when she was announced as the second ever laureate of the Pinnacle award, which is arguably the highest honor bestowed by the Country Music Association, especially considering that Swift is only 23 and just on her fourth studio album. Considering that the only other winner of the Pinnacle Award has been Garth Brooks in 2005… well, you get the picture. It’s a pretty big deal.
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are not divorcing, contrary to reports in a US tabloid. Their representative said the rumours were "totally ridiculous and false."

Speculation began last week when the National Enquirer reported the couple's marriage was over owing to a number of factors. The couple's representative has spoken to The Huffington Post and firmly denied rumours that McGraw is having an affair with Taylor Swift; that Hill has trust issues or that McGraw is concerned he is mistreating his wife. These rumours have been labelled "totally ridiculous and false" by the couple's representative.

Carrie Underwood has already sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl.
Carrie Underwood will sing the opening theme to NBC's Sunday Night Football program, the network announced on Tuesday (April 7, 2013). It appears to be a plum deal for the country star, given SNF is easily one of the most-watched television shows in the country. The new season kicks off in September.
Grammy-winner Underwood replaces fellow country star Faith Hill on the show, who had sang the theme 'Waiting All Day For Sunday Night' since 2007. "I'm very excited," Underwood, 30, told Reuters, "I think it's a perfect fit and I am such a sports fan and football fan, and we love Sunday nights around my household, so for me to be a part of it is something really special."
Underwood's signing is probably more relevant to sports fans given she is married to the Canadian ice hockey star Mike Fisher. She also sang the national anthem at the 2010 Super Bowl - the biggest event on the football calendar. A prominent musical introduction has become a staple for prime time football broadcasts in the U.S. since Hank Williams Jr reworked his song 'All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight' as the theme for the Monday Night Football program in 1989.

Faith Hill has ended her six-year spell on Sunday Night Football.
Faith Hill will no longer feature on the opening theme for NBC's primetime Sunday Night Football show after announcing she is leaving after six years. Hill has sung the opening theme for the show - a reworked version of Joan Jett's I Hate Myself For Loving You - since 2007, when she replaced Pink.
However, Hill has opted to stand down from her role and the hunt for her replacement is underway. "Faith Hill is family to all of us at Sunday Night Football. For the last six seasons and two Super Bowls, her opening performance of 'Waiting All Day' set the tone for SNF and became a television staple," Sunday Night Football producer Fred Gaudelli said in a statement to the Hollwood Reporter, "We will always be grateful for her performances and friendship. We wish Faith nothing but continued success."
Hill announced the news on Twitter early on Monday, tweeting, "Amazing 2 have been part of SNF -- an honor. I've just let everyone there know it's time 2 let someone else rock the open," adding that it was a "difficult decision, kinda emotional."

Who will replace Hill on Sunday Night Football?
Six years is enough time to get used to something, but now, football fans settling in to their weekly fix of sport on a Sunday night won’t hear the dulcet tones of Faith Hill any more, as she’s out.
As most stars do nowadays, Hill alerted fans and the media to the news via Twitter. “I've just let everyone there know it's time 2 let someone else rock the open," she tweeted, adding, "….Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all u guys at SNF - I'll b watching!!!" Sunday Night Football executive producer Fred Gaudelli tweeted ''great love and appreciation'' to Hill for her participation over the years. He didn’t give any clue as to which direction they would go with regards to the new singer, so fans will have to wait for that bombshell. Hill has been part of football since 1999, when she sang the national anthem for the Tennessee Titans' new stadium in Nashville. She went on to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl in 2000.

Faith Hill's braces became the subject of intense discussion and debate during the Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 10, 2013), with the country songstress debuting her new mouth gear. The singer looked stunning in a black J. Mendel gown though confused fans by wearing braces, despite her usually flawless smile.
Hill told country station KNIX that she had braces as a kid, but forgot to wear her retainer. When explaining the need for a second round of dental gear, Faith advised. "Kids, wear your retainer!" Her two eldest daughters with husband Tim Mcgraw - Gracie and Maggie - both wear braces, too. The couple presented an award at Sunday night's 55th annual Grammy Awards and were photographed hanging out with their close friends Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban. Five-times winner Grammy winner Faith Hill teamed her lavish gown with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery, Tom Ford shoes and a pretty impressive looking Bottega Veneta clutch.
Tim Mcgraw gave up the booze for good back in 2008, and now five years later the country star has reflected on the profound effect giving up the booze has made on his life in an interview with People magazine.
His relationship to wife Faith Hill, he says, is one of the areas of his life that has improved considerably since packing in drinking, with the singer's sobriety beginning when he first noticed that the drink was beginning to affect him on a very personal level. He reveals to the magazine: “I wasn’t a beer drinker. I was more a whiskey drinker. And I wouldn’t just have a drink. If I was going to drink, I’d have some drinks. People were worried about me. It was to the point where I felt it was negatively affecting my relationships and getting in the way of things I wanted to accomplish in life. So I quit… I am probably less embarrassing to her now.”
As well as improving on his marriage, McGraw has used the time he used to spend searching for the bottom of numerous bottles to concentrate on his health now, enlisting the help martial arts expert Roger Yuan for three 90-minute sessions a day. The workout firmly took over from the booze for McGraw, who shows off the effects of his new workout programme in the photo-shoot for the magazine, and boy can you tell where his efforts have been heading: straight to his abs. He went on to say, about his workout regimes, "My workout program took the place of alcohol, and it’s really important. … I was always in pretty good shape but for a while I let it go a little bit. There are aches and pains but I feel pretty young.”

All eyes will be on Bruce Springsteen during Grammy’s week, as the New Jersey rocker will be the recipient of the MusiCares Person of the Year award. To celebrate the honour, a Bruce Springsteen tribute concert will take place in Los Angeles on February 8, 2013, featuring some of the biggest names in rock and pop and hosted by Jon Stewart.
The event, which is already sold out, will feature musical highlights such as Elton John, Kenny Chesney and Mumford And Sons. A whole host of musicians of varying genres and eras have been included in the line-up. Patti Smith, with whom Bruce co-wrote the hit ‘Because The Night’ will be there, as will Faith Hill, Emmylou Harris, as well as Alabama Shakes, Eddie Vedder and Neil Young. Proceeds for the concert will go to MusiCares, an organisation set up to provide support for struggling musicians in financial, medical and personal need.
The annual MusiCares Person of the Year award is attributed to a star whose artistic accomplishments are as worthy of merit as their philanthropic work. Previous winners of the award include Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, Paul McCartney and Bono.
