As we found out years ago, Tim McGraw, along with country music pals, Kenny Chesney and Tracy Lawrence, found out who his friends are. Well, Tim has teamed up with those friends to create a compilation disc, entitled “Tim McGraw & Friends,” scheduled for release by Curb Records on January 22, 2013. Colt Ford helped Tim out on the track, “Twisted,” which will be the first single off the special compilation disc. The album will be exclusively available at Walmart and will include 11 individual tracks:
Marking the first time they have performed together in six years in the U.S., superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill dazzled audiences with the kick off of “Soul2Soul” at The Venetian Theater this past weekend. Their smash filled set inside the intimate venue invites the audience to get up close and personal with McGraw and Hill as never seen before. In between solo hits like McGraw’s “Real Good Man” and Hill’s “Breathe” as well as their current singles “One Of Those Nights” and “American Heart” the powerhouse husband and wife duo deliver crowd favorites “It’s Your Love” and “Like We Never Loved At All” along with surprising covers and interactive moments with the audience. The 10 weekend limited engagement runs through April.
They aren’t the only country stars taking over Vegas the last two weeks – Canadian country superstar Shania Twain kicked off her “Still The One” dates at Cesar’s Palace this month. Which show would you travel to see?
This Sunday marks the 40th Anniversary of the American Music Awards, and when we think of decades past, we think of one thing — crazy fashion choices! So, in anticipation of this year’s big show, we decided to do a little fashion policing of our own (sorry Joan), because though the awards are really about the music, the thing that seems to get the most lasting buzz is the red carpet do’s and don’t's! Below are our staff’s picks for country music’s fashionistas and fashion faux pas in AMA history!
Country music icon Faith Hill is getting set to premiere her brand new music video for her single “American Heart” on Ustream tomorrow for her fans first. The video will go live at 9 pm EST tomorrow night at Ustream.com/faithhill. It’s her first music video in nearly five years, and will be part of her live ustream broadcast which includes a behind the scenes look at the video and how it was made.
“American Heart” is available on iTunes and is out now at country radio. What do you think of Faith’s new single? Do you think it’s the right choice for a “comeback” after being out of the spotlight for so long, or do you think that Faith will be able to find her way right back on the country charts?
Country music’s original super-couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw will finally be performing again at the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards on November 1st. Faith will perform her latest single “American Heart” during the broadcast, and Tim will preview a new song from his upcoming untitled album with Big Machine Records. They’ll later join Blake Shelton and Lady Antebellum in a special tribute to country legend Willie Nelson during the award show.
Faith and Tim will be taking residency in Las Vegas with a special Soul 2 Soul stay at the Venetian. Their Vegas shows kick off December 7th. It’s the biggest musical event in the Venetian’s history, but it is limited so make sure you find a way to see their shows before its too late! Their shows will go on for ten weekends starting this December and ending April 26th.
Who else do you want to see perform at the CMAs this year? Are you going to be tuning in?
This seemed to be the theme of the second episode of the show that has created quite a buzz, ABC’s Nashville. The second episode began with Hayden Panettiere‘s character, Juliette Barnes, taking over the streets of Nashville, literally, as she filmed a music video that has Laura Bell Bundy “Giddy On Up” style choreography, mixed with the naughtiness of Christina Aguilera back in her “Dirrty” days. And, of course, stuck in the traffic caused by Juliette is Rayna Jaymes, former country starlet who is trying to breathe new life back into a career that her record label believes is dwindling. Naturally, seeing the young vixen create such a stir is a point of contention for Rayna, as she still tries to work through the abominable idea her record label suggested — that she open for a songstress that, age-wise, she could have given birth to herself.
One half of country music royalty will be returning to the charts this week. Faith Hill‘s brand new single, “American Heart,” was sent to country radio on September 17th, before it’s official add date of October 1st. It’s the follow-up to her comeback single, a remake of OneRepublic’s “Come Home.”
Her new song is a co-write by Jim Beavers and Jonathan Singleton. It was produced by both Byron Gallimore and Faith herself! The single is from her upcoming album, which Faith admitted backstage at CMA Fest is completed. There’s still no release date announced for her record.
“American Heart” was one of the three brand new songs Faith performed at CRS in February. There’s no word yet on when the single will be available for digital release, but keep your ears out and let us know if you’ve heard it yet on your local radio station!
NBC is pulling out all the big stops with their fall programming this year. They’ve re-done their Sunday Night Football theme with the help of country superstar Faith Hill. The new video, and theme, premiered last weekend on NBC. Watch closely and you might catch Blake Shelton and two of his fellow The Voice coaches joining Faith for the song.
Country music’s super-couple in Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are bringing the biggest musical event ever to the Venetian Las Vegas this December. “Soul2Soul Las Vegas” will be the first time in six years that the husband-and-wife have performed together in the United States. Their special engagement will feature a brand new production with innovative lighting and stage techniques for the pair. Their shows start December 7th for 10 weekends through to April 2013 at the 1, 815-seat Venetian Theater.
“We are creating a show that will be completely different from what we’ve done before – and might ever do again,” said Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. “In arenas and stadiums, you’re always faced with the challenge of finding ways to make people feel closer to the action, no matter where they might be sitting. Now everyone will be close, so it opens up all kinds of creative possibilities and we’re looking forward to exploring those so that we can really give our fans something truly special.”
