Tim McGraw, Faith Hill announce tour plans

Wednesday, March 7, 2007 – The Soul2Soul Tour 2007 of Faith Hill and Tim McGraw will kick off June 6 in Omaha, Neb. and conclude two months later in Anaheim, Cal., totaling 34 shows. Last year's tour was the most successful in country music history.

The tour, sponsored by Jeep, will hit Canada for the first time. Tickets will go on-sale beginning on Friday, March 16th in Canada and on Saturday, March 17th in the U.S. Fan club presale tickets will also be available as of Monday, March 12th at www.faithhill.com or www.timmcgraw.com.

"The crowds for every show on Soul2Soul II were out of control - they rocked," said McGraw and Hill in a joint statement. "To know that we're able to do this again is a great feeling, but we'll have more to live up to this time. There'll be some new songs, along with the best of 'Soul2Soul II,' to make 'Soul2Soul Tour 2007' an even better experience."

The "Jeep Presents Soul2Soul Tour 2007" itinerary features two special performances - in Lafayette, La. and Biloxi, Miss., which were specifically requested by McGraw and Hill. They are from Louisiana and Mississippi respectively.

The tour will play in the round, a configuration they also used last year. The two and a half hour show will include several first time musical performances by the couple, as well as hits they have done together. McGraw, who will release a new album in late March, does two songs with his wife on the disc.

CD reviews

CD review - Here on Earth Tim McGraw's collection, "Here on Earth," finds the country star sounding peaceful and down to Earth. He's more meditative than overly active, throughout. It's very much an adult album in that McGraw is speaking from the perspective of maturity, rather than pretending he's still a young man. If he's got any barbecue statins on his white t-shirt, he's not letting on here. McGraw burns through five mellow tracks before he gets to anything with a discernable beat. ...
CD review - Damn Country Music Tim McGraw said of his 14th studio album, "Damn Country Music," "It's is all about passion, (taking him back to 1989) "when I came to Nashville to chase my dreams." Country music has richly rewarded him over the past two decades, and he honors the genre's tradition here. The album gets off to a very traditional start with Celtic folk. The flute and skillful acoustic picking on the opener "Here Tonight" bring a Mark Knopfler tune immediately to mind. ...
CD review - Sundown Heaven Town The banjo comes first out of the speakers, the opening strains of "Overrated," the lead-off song on Tim McGraw's latest. But with a "1-2-3-4" count, the mood changes and goes for a more modern country approach. McGraw does about the same on the follow-up "City Lights" with Michael Landau's steely, but rocking lead guitar taking over near the conclusion as it does later hard on "Sick of Me" where the protagonist contemplates a need to turn his life around. ...
