In October 2016, the country power couple announced their plans to embark on tour together in 2017. The tour, called Soul2Soul, kicks off on April 7 in New Orleans, Louisiana. After six months on the road, the tour will wrap up on October 27 in Brooklyn, New York.
The end of the tour comes at the perfect time for McGraw and Hill to jump into celebrating a major milestone in their careers. As the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum announced on Thursday (January 12), McGraw and Hill are getting an exhibit in the museum!
McGraw and Hill’s exhibit will open to the public on November 17 and will remain open until May 13, 2018. McGraw expressed his excitement about the exhibit on Facebook, sharing an old picture of him and Hill from their Spontaneous Combustion tour in 1996. Hill served as an opening act for McGraw during the tour, when sparks began to fly between them. After a whirlwind courtship, they married later that year.
According to Rolling Stone, McGraw and Hill’s Hall of Fame exhibit will contain many artifacts like the picture McGraw shared. Some of the items fans can expect to see are “personal and professional memorabilia representing various milestones and significant moments throughout their careers.” The exhibit will focus on McGraw and Hill’s shared accomplishments as a couple while covering their solo careers as well.
McGraw and Hill are the latest artists announced as part of the Hall of Fame’s exhibit lineup for 2017. Jason Aldean, Shania Twain, and Loretta Lynn were the previous artists announced to have personalized exhibits coming to the Hall of Fame this year. The Hall of Fame will announce the final artist on Friday (January 13).
For McGraw and Hill, this is another major achievement to add to their long list of awards and accomplishments. In October 2016, they accepted one of Nashville’s highest honors when they received stars together on the Music City Walk of Fame. Now, those who come to visit McGraw and Hill’s exhibit in the museum will get the chance to see their stars, since they are located near the museum.
We can’t wait to learn more about McGraw and Hill’s exhibit and the artifacts that will be featured in it! Of course, the exhibit will have to mention the couple’s many romantic duets, including their 1997 chart-topper “It’s Your Love.” Take a walk down memory lane by watching its music video below.
Congratulations to McGraw and Hill!
