Tim McGraw, Faith Hill Reveal 2017 Soul2Soul Tour Opening Acts
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will be bringing a number of artists out on the road with them during their upcoming 2017 Soul2Soul Tour. During a Facebook Live event on Tuesday evening (Jan. 31), the country couple took fan questions, and revealed the news about their trek’s opening acts.
Joining McGraw and Hill out on the road during their 2017 Soul2Soul Tour will be the Brothers Osborne, NeedToBreathe, Seth Ennis, the Shadowboxers, Jon Pardi, Chris Lane, Joseph, Midland, Caitlyn Smith, High Valley, Charlie Worsham, Lori McKenna, Rachel Platten, Rhiannon Giddens, Devon Dawson, Maggie Rose, Natalie Hemby, Ben Rector, Brent Cobb, Eric Paslay, Brandy Clark, Cam, Chris Janson, Steve Moakler, LoCash and Margo Price (phew!). Each opening act is scheduled to appear at only a handful of dates; visit Soul2SoulTour.com to see the full list.
As McGraw and Hill explained in their Facebook Live session, each opening act was “hand selected” by the couple.
“They are very special singers, songwriters … people that we have discovered over the last year,” Hill says; McGraw adds, “There’s some fantastic acts, and some people we have a special connection to … and people that we really love.”
McGraw and Hill celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in October of 2016; during the same week, the pair received stars on the Music City Walk of Fame and hosted a sold-out “surprise” concert at the Ryman Auditorium to announce their 2017 co-headlining tour, which will begin in April.
“We are going back on the road, on tour!” Hill said from stage that night. “We are going to go from side to side, South to North, all the way around the globe.”
Added McGraw, “We’ve been looking to this for a long, long time.”
The 2017 Soul2Soul Tour will begin in New Orleans, La., on April 7, and run through the end of October, hitting a total of 65 cities.
“We have the best fans in the world, who have been with us through our entire journey, and we are so excited to celebrate with them by going back on the road and showcasing an exciting new show,” McGraw and Hill say. “It’s always great when we get to work together, and it’s been a while since we got to do that.”
In early January, it was announced that McGraw and Hill will be the subjects of a Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit beginning in November.
