Each year, NBC’s The Voice welcomes successful, accomplished musicians to serve as key advisors to the contestants. Advisors help the hopeful singers with their vocal abilities and stage presence. It was just announced that season 11 will have two new key advisors — none other than country power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill!
Hill and McGraw will serve as advisors in the show’s Knockout Rounds which begin on Oct. 24. This is the final round of cuts before the live shows and viewer voting begins.
“I think having the perspective of performing live in many different venues, from clubs to stadiums, will help us in working with The Voice artists this season,” said Hill in a statement. “It’s important that they be able to connect with their audience.”
“I really like to dig into songs and how they need to be presented in a live environment,” McGraw shared. “I’m looking forward to working with the coaches to help the artists reach their potential.”
The duo are more than qualified to be key advisors. McGraw has had 10 No. 1 albums, while Hill has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide. Their joint Soul2Soul II 2006 tour is the highest grossing country tour of all time. The couple recently announced that they’ll be at it again with a 2017 Soul2Soul tour!
McGraw and Hill follow in the footsteps of other country advisors for The Voice, like Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire. Parton’s goddaughter, Miley Cyrus, was also an advisor before permanently joining the show as a coach for season 11.
The iconic couple will have some talented singers to work with (like Texan Sundance Head)! We’re sure they’ll have some wonderful advice to offer.
The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC at 8/7c.
