Tim McGraw and Faith
Hill: A Love Connection On and Off the Stage
April 18th 2006
Tim McGraw was born May 1, 1967, in Delhi, La. He arrived in to start
his career in Nashville in1989. He released his self-titled debut album
in 1992 on Curb Records. He didn't have a major hit until 1994's "Not a
Moment Too Soon".
He followed that up with his first No.1 record, "Don't Take the Girl".
Tim grew up riding horses and playing baseball in rural Louisiana. When
he was eleven, he accidentally discovered his mother's deepest
secret--that he is the biological son of pro baseball player Tug McGraw.
Tim is currently considered the king of country music. He holds twenty
number one hits, has sold thirty million albums and was awarded two
Grammy's. Faith has also sold 30 million records and won four Grammy's.
Faith Hill was born in Star, Mississippi on September 21, 1967. Faith
Hill's real name is Audrey Faith Perry and she was adopted. Her last
name came when she married Daniel Hill. They divorced in 1991. She grew
up singing in her church and at family events. When Faith was nineteen
she headed to Nashville to see if she could make a career in country
music. Faith Hill was "discovered" working a job at a music publishing
company. Her first demo record was cut and the song was called "It
Faith made her first album with Warner Bros. in 1993. It was titled Take
Me As I Am. With the single, "Wild One", Faith became the first female
country music singer to stay on the Billboard as number one for four
weeks in a row. In 1995,
Faith Hill released her second CD called "It Matters to me". She was
recently quoted as saying, "Each day I try to get as much out of life as
I can - to keep it real, sincere and very honest. Hopefully, people can
get that from my music. And if I'm lucky, one day there will be a little
spot carved away somewhere that says I made a contribution."
On The Couple
In 1996, McGraw teamed up with Warner Brothers and artist Faith Hill for
the Spontaneous Combustion tour. It seems that spontaneous combustion is
an appropriate description for this couple's beginnings. Tim McGraw and
Faith Hill were married in October 1996. As a couple, they've soared to
the top of the country charts with romantic duets such as "Let's Make
Love" and "It's Your Love." Their ballads are inspired by their
real-life love story.
People magazine named Faith Hill as one of the 50 "Most Beautiful
People". McGraw's "Everywhere" earned the CMA album of the year honors
in 1998. "It's Your Love", was the first musical partnership between Tim
and Faith. "Its Your Love" held the No. 1 spot Billboard's country
singles chart for six weeks.
"Its" received a CMA vocal event trophy song and single of the year at
the ACM Awards that year. More duets followed with Let's Make Love
earning a Grammy.
In 1997, Faith gave birth to their first daughter Gracie. They were
gifted with two more daughters in 2001 and 2003. In a very surreal
sense, it seems these two were destined for each other. Tim's biological
parentage and Faith's adoption had to give them a sense of having
something profoundly painful, in common. Neither grew up with both of
their parents. It makes sense that not only do they share a bond of
having suffered somewhat the same experience but that they value their
love and their family above all else. Their Soul2Soul II Tour proves to
be a representation on their love connection from off stage to on
stage.Soul2Soul II Tour (SS2) Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's Soul2Soul Tour
2000 marked one of the industry's most successful concert tours in
history. All venues sold-out and the tour created record box office
sales. SS 2000 ended about six years ago.
Many have long awaited and anticipated these months now into 2006. Tim
and Faith fans knew they would be back.
Soul2Soul II Tour is expected to exceed 80 concert performances and will
most definitely include the music that McGraw and Hill have made their
trademark over the years. SS2 will be as grand as SS1. Reports coming
in say that many of the venues showcasing SS2 have sold out the tickets
in ten minutes. It is expected that the set will be outstanding as
usual. The couple is known for the use of the round center stage design
that allows for all seats in the house to be the best seats in the
house. Soul2Soul II Tour will include many of Tim and Faith's biggest
hits and duets. Many fans have reported that their love for each other
is obvious on-stage. They send out a powerful vibe that not only
entertains but makes many wish they could experience a connection like
that of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
