Tim McGraw has been blown away by his wife Faith Hill’s Beyonce-style dance moves on tour.
The two singers, who tied the knot in 1996, are currently on the road together as part of their Soul2Soul: The World Tour, which kicked off in New Orleans on 7 April (17) and ends 27 October (17) in Brooklyn, New York.
Even after 20 years of marriage the couple still manages to surprise each other, with Tim admitting his spouse has particularly taken him aback with her movements on stage, noting they resemble those pulled by a certain singing sensation.
“Faith’s dance moves have been surprising me!” he laughed to Entertainment Weekly. “She’s bringing out the Beyonce on this tour!”
Discussing their decision to perform in front of an 80ft-wide video wall which projects personal photos of them and their daughters Gracie, 20, Maggie, 18, and 15-year-old Audrey in the background of their concerts, he added, “I think people want a certain level of production when they come see our show. And it’s fun for us to be out there with the lights and the bells and the whistles. We bring an element of theatre to it, and that works well for us.”
The pair perform countless hits during their gigs and with more than 20 studio albums between them both, narrowing down the set list was a task in itself. Faith’s famous tracks This Kiss and Breathe made the cut, as did Tim’s song Live Like You Were Dying, which he was tempted to cut from the list due to being tired of performing it until his wife warned him not to.
“I would’ve packed my bags and left if he’d done that!” she joked.
This venture marks the third time the stars have played a string of shows together, with their previous outing – Soul2Soul II Tour – running between April 2006 and September 2007 and becoming the top-selling country tour at the time.
“We had to step up the game in a big way,” Faith said of the pressure to deliver this time round.
