Watch Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s ‘The Rest of Our Life’ Music Video
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary by releasing "The Rest of Our Life," their second single from the album of the same name. They've also shared the song's accompanying music video.
The lyrics of "The Rest of Our Life" describe a couple weighing the commitment of marriage: McGraw sings, "I got something to run past you / I just hope I say it right / So I take your hand and ask you / Have you made plans for the rest of your life?" and Hill responds, "I've been making plans for children / Since I've been looking in your eyes." However, the "The Rest of Our Life" music video, directed by Grant Singer, isn't a typical romance-filled, lovey-dovey type of music video, even if the song's lyrics make listeners' hearts skip a beat; instead, it shows the the commitment of a couple married for more than two decades.
The "The Rest of Ourr Life" video begins with McGraw and Hill dressed to the nines, riding in a limo and arguing. Their disagreement escalates to the point that Hill, clad in a glamorous purple dress, exits the car and walks to a small-town diner in the middle of a rainstorm. Readers can press play on the video above to see the couple's reunion.
“[Singer] captured the essence of the song in a way that was a little juxtaposed from the actual lyric of the song," Hill tells AOL. Adds McGraw, “His vision for it was so unique. To take the song and turn it into an argument was really a cool idea.”
“The Rest of Our Life,” written by Ed Sheeran, Amy Wadge, Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac, resonated with both singers: “Both Tim and I agreed the first time we heard that song, it reminded me of us, and the feeling that we had the first time that we admitted and decided that we were gonna be married,” Hill says.
"There was a comfort and a security about that moment that resonates in this song," McGraw adds. “It’s got such an intimacy to it; I think that’s what really attracted us as well."
Hill and McGraw are currently on the road for their 2017 Soul2Soul Tour, which began in early April and is scheduled to run through the end of October. The Rest of Our Life is set for release on Nov. 17.
