Mcgraw And Hill On Course To Break Country Touring Records
TIM MCGRAW and FAITH HILL are well on course to smash country music touring records in America after passing the one million mark in ticket sales. The couple's 74-date Soul2Soul II trek was sidelined at the weekend (01-01JUL06) after MCGraw was ordered to rest up with bronchitis, but the pair will be back on the road tomorrow (05JUL06) in New Orleans, Louisiana. And they return with some great news - their 2006 tour is expected to be the highest-grossing country tour of all time during a calendar year. For the week ending 25 June (06), more than one million fans had bought tickets for the shows. Organisers claim that by the time Hill and MCGraw conclude their dates in September (06), the couple will have shattered KENNY CHESNEY's single-year country gross record of $63 million, set in 2005.
