Their smash filled set inside the intimate venue invites the audience to get up close and personal with McGraw and Hill as never seen before. In between solo hits like McGraw’s “Real Good Man” and Hill’s “Breathe” as well as their current singles “One Of Those Nights” and “American Heart” the powerhouse husband and wife duo deliver crowd favorites “It’s Your Love” and “Like We Never Loved At All” along with surprising covers and interactive moments with the audience. The 10 weekend limited engagement runs through April.
During the performance one of the acoustic duets is “I Need You” written by, Nashville’s established songwriters, Tony Lane and David Lee. The song was cut by Tim and Faith in 2007, reaching #8 on the Country charts. The duet was nominated twice at the 2008 Grammy Awards for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals & Best Country Song. The point is, there’s a little bit of Nashville no matter where you go.
Collectively, they’ve sold 70 million albums, won eight Grammy Awards, 15 Country Music Association Awards, 14 American Music Awards, seven People’s Choice Awards and 26 Academy of Country Music Awards. McGraw and Hill have been dominating the music charts since the early ‘90s and began performing together in 2000 in their record-breaking “Soul2Soul” tour, becoming that year’s top grossing and most successful U.S. tour. Their success continued in 2006 when “Soul2Soul II” returned to the road. It became the highest grossing country music tour of all time, the most attended of the year in any musical genre and remains the highest grossing multi-year North American tour in country music history. “Soul2Soul” at The Venetian Theater continues next weekend, and covers 7 more weekends in 2013.
