Tim McGraw Admits Playlist Is Mind Bender

“Some of the Old Stuff in a Different Way”

When Tim McGraw and Faith Hill walked the red carpet before heading into the Sunday night’s (Feb. 12) Grammy Awards, they gave E!’s Ryan Seacrest a few hints about their upcoming tour.

“We’re in a mind bender right now because we’ve been rehearsing, the band’s been rehearsing, and I’m working on a set list. As every artist knows, when you’re working on a set list, that’s the toughest thing to do,” McGraw explained.

And for their loyal, long time fans, he promised that they’d hear “some of the old stuff in a different way.”

McGraw and Hill also sat down with Ellen DeGenres on her show last week, and said that when they kick off the tour on April 7, they’re doing so in New Orleans.

“I’m from Louisiana, Faith’s from Mississippi, so we have a ton of family that’s gonna be there. It’s gonna be a lot of fun. And it happens to be my sister’s birthday that night,” he said, adding that he and his wife haven’t done a tour proper together in ten years. “We’re pretty excited about it.”

They also played Never Have I Ever on the show, and it was incredible. A couple highlights? Hill admitted she has snooped through some of McGraw’s things, and McGraw admitted he has used his fame to get out of trouble.

During the pre-telecast ceremony before the start of the 59th annual Grammy Awards, songwriter Lori McKenna won best country song for writing McGraw’s “Humble and Kind.”
