Today, the couple announced their first-ever joint album and a new single “The Rest of Our Life” to commemorate the couple’s anniversary. Look for the new album on Nov. 17.

A lot has changed in country music since 1996. But one thing that’s remained constant is the relationship between Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. The country music superstars married 21 years ago today and have spent the last two decades raising their three daughters, racking up hits and embarking on three hugely successful tours.

n honor of the couple’s 21st wedding anniversary, take a look back and Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s enduring love story.

The tour that started it all

Tim and Faith met when Hill was an opening act on McGraw’s Spontaneous Combustion Tour in 1996. Though Hill had recently become engaged to her former producer Scott Hendricks, her chemistry with McGraw was undeniable and they were married less than a year later. The couple had their first daughter, Gracie Katherine, the following year.

In 1997, the couple released “It’s Your Love,” a smash hit and steamy love song that won the Country Music Association award for Vocal Event of the Year.

 

The following year, McGraw provided backing vocals on Faith Hill’s “Just To Hear You Say That You Love Me,” which peaked at No. 3 on the country charts in 1998.

 

In 2001, Tim and Faith followed the love song suit with the Grammy award-winning “Let’s Make Love.”

 

Even with all that success with romantic duets, the couple has never been afraid to collaborate on songs about strained marriages and broken relationships. In 2001, the couple recorded the Bruce Robison-penned “Angry All the Time” for McGraw’s 2001 album, Set This Circus Down. In 2005, McGraw provided harmony vocals on Hill’s “Like We Never Loved at All,” about a woman struggling to move on after a breakup.

Soul2Soul

In 2000, McGraw and Hill launched the first Soul2Soul tour, a joint tour featuring the couple performing their individual hits along with their duets. The Soul2Soul II Tour in 2006 became the highest-grossing country music tour in history. This year, the couple revived the hugely popular tour, with 70 stops across the globe. The tour wraps up on Oct. 27.

The couple is currently working on an album of duets and they’ve already given us a taste of what’s to come with “Speak to a Girl” and “Break First.”

After 21 years, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are still relationship goals and the best duet partners in the game. Here’s to the next 21 years of marital bliss for country music’s favorite couple.
