McGraw, Hill Give Away a Car, Perform Impromptu Show in L.A.

After presenting a fan with a new Dodge Charger at their Friday night (Aug.18) at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill traveled to the Sunset Strip for a charity show at one of the city’s legendary rock clubs. Christine Nevins, a 39-year-old restaurant manager who resides in Oak Hills, Calif., received the new car after she was determined to be the 1 millionth ticket holder to pass the turnstiles during the couple’s Soul2Soul II tour that began in April. The landmark occurred during the second of three shows at Staples Center. The late night show at the Whisky was part of the couple’s impromptu Bread & Water concerts that feature cover versions of familiar songs. McGraw’s selections included “Suspicious Minds” and “Sweet Home Alabama,” but he also introduced a new song, “The River and Me.” Hill performed several songs, including “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” before Reba McEntire joined her for “Does He Love You” and the Everly Brothers’ “When Will I Be Loved.” The Bread & Water concert raised money for the couple’s nonprofit Neighbor’s Keeper Foundation for continued relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
