Hill, McGraw Have Good Time Covered

By CURTIS ROSS The Tampa Tribune
Published: Jul 26, 2007

TAMPA - It's doubtful country superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will ever find themselves back in the bars, singing covers for beer and gas money.

But on the basis of Wednesday's show at the Forum, they could if it came to that.

Consider: Hill's set included Abba's "The Winner Takes It All"; McGraw's began with Steve Miller's "The Joker" and also featured Eddie Rabbitt's "Suspicions." The pair began the show with a remake of British mope rockers Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars," and duetted on Bryan Adams' "It's Only Love" during the encore.

Of course that was all gravy. Both halves of the married couple have enough hits to fill a set. Most of them got an airing at the show, which drew a crowd of 16,348. It wasn't a sellout but the number was impressive considering it has been just longer than a year since the two played the same venue.

Hill's set began after "Chasing Cars." She has gotten a good deal more comfortable as a performer since her early days. She moved with confidence, interacted playfully with the audience, and showed off her powerful pipes on tunes such as "This Kiss" and "Stronger."

McGraw joined Hill for a pair of numbers before beginning his portion. He sounded stiff and tentative on "The Joker," much more comfortable on his own material, such as recent hit "Last Dollar (Fly Away)." Rowdy party anthems such as "I Like It, I Love It," were notably absent. The set focused on more emotionally resonant material such as "Live Like You Were Dying" and "If You're Reading This," a salute to fallen soldiers.

Review: McGraw and Hill show their soul
By Ellen Fagg
The Salt Lake Tribune

Posted: 6:50 AM- The best thing about a Tim McGraw and Faith Hill concert is that country's uber popular couple can hit their marks.
Notes, too, starting with a richly voiced cover of Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars," and ending with "I Need You," a new, familiar-sounding duet off McGraw's just-released album, "Let it Go."

In between, the set list for Monday night's 2-hour-40-minute Salt Lake City concert was stuffed full of an endless supply of ballads and anthems about love and heartbreak. The staging was similar to the couple's winning, best-selling 2006 tour, without the overly pretentious, awkward back-to-back duet singing. Instead, the married singers actually looked at each other in early duets, and shared kisses and a long embrace at the concert's finale.
Cynical critics might question why stars like McGraw, the outlaw singer known for his sensitive side (listen to: "Real Good Man") and Hill, the glamorous blonde who sings countrified pop about being a downhome girl (listen to: "Mississippi Girl") seem so eager to blow up their love story to Jumbotron-size. (As McGraw joked at the tour announcement: "I can't wait to get out there and see everybody and read the bad reviews.")
But fans seem to have their own love affair with both the couple's story and their music, if the know-every-word ticketholders at Monday night's sold-out EnergySolutions Arena

are any indication. Last year, the couple's "Soul2Soul II" tour was a big deal for the struggling music industry, selling some 1.1 million tickets and estimated to be the top-grossing tour -- ever -- in country music.
