Tim McGraw, Faith Hill Sign to Sony
According to Billboard, McGraw and Hill are now each signed to Sony, in deals that involve “multiple solo albums from both artists;” both a Sony spokesman and a representative for Hill confirmed the news to The Boot on Monday afternoon (Feb. 13). Billboard reports that more details will be made available this spring, and that there is no official word at this time on if McGraw and Hill will record an album together as well.
Previously, McGraw was with Big Machine Label Group; he signed with the label in 2012, after leaving Curb Records, and last released an album, Damn Country Music, in 2015. Hill, meanwhile, was previously signed to Warner Bros. Nashville, her label home for more than 20 years; her last album for that label, Deep Tracks, dropped in November. Hill is no longer in the list of artists on Warner Bros. Nashville’s website; however, at the time of publication, McGraw was still among the artists listed on BMLG’s website.
McGraw and Hill were among the country stars to attend the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Feb. 12); together, they presented the awards for Record of the Year and Album of the Year at the close of the Grammys telecast. The two artists 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 Soul2Soul Tour, which will begin in April.
McGraw and Hill recently recorded a new duet, “Keep Your Eyes on Me,” for the The Shack movie soundtrack. In early January, it was announced that they will be the subjects of a Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit beginning in November.
