Tim McGraw and Faith Hill


Arguably country music's most visible couple, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw first played together in 1996 on their Spontaneous Combustion Tour, during which McGraw famously proposed to Hill. She accepted by writing "yes" on a mirror in his trailer while he was on stage performing.

Hill made history in 1993 when her debut single "Wild One" held the top position for four consecutive weeks on Billboard's country music singles chart, a feat that hadn't been accomplished by a female country singer in nearly 30 years.

McGraw began topping the charts in the mid 90's, and by the end of the decade, as his 1999 album A Place in The Sun went triple platinum, he had taken advantage of Garth Brooks’ Chris Gaines miscalculation to become country music’s biggest male star.

In 2000 Hill and McGraw toured together on the Soul2Soul Tour, which became the highest grossing country music tour of all time. McGraw had a starring role opposite Sandra Bullock in the movie The Blind Side, and recently appeared in the film Country Strong with Gwyneth Paltrow. He is currently touring behind his new album Southern Voice. Hill is expected to release a new album soon.
