OFFSTAGE: The Never-Ending Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Q&A

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

This might be some kind of record for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill . They did a question-and-answer session with Las Vegas reporters recently, and there are about 30 questions. And McGraw and Hill each answer them all , so it goes on forever. There are some highlights, though, for sure. Like when McGraw says one of the best parts about their Vegas residency at the Venetian has been the drunk crowd at the second show and when Hill makes fun of McGraw for using the word “anticipatory.” And Hill talking about the amazing Vegas show that Celine Dion puts on and McGraw admitting that their daughters have seen a few Vegas shows but not their parents’ Soul2Soul show.

McGraw and Hill agreed the chit-chat session they do with the audience is nerve-wracking.

“You never know what we are going to talk about,” he said. “I mean, there’s a few things that you sort of know you have a little bit of a guideline, but then it gets off tangent sometimes. … Those are the scary parts, but so far, it’s been awesome.”

“It’s a small space, and we can hear most everyone when they yell out a question, and it’s something that we would never be able to do in another setting,” she added. “We just want to take advantage of it, and we tried it that way one night and thought this is how we need to do this.”
