On the Mount Olympus of musical power couples, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw stand near the very top. The pair of pop-country superstars have spent a combined 53 years blending traditional country sounds with radio-friendly stylings. They’ll continue their international “Soul2Soul” tour Saturday at Matthew Knight Arena.
McGraw, 53, has released 14 studio albums, won three Grammy Awards, and changed the landscape of country music since 1993. One of the first country artists to mold his sound for the radio, McGraw’s music fills the world’s biggest stadiums, and he’s sold 75 million records worldwide as a result. Hill, 50, shares similar success. She has released eight studio albums and won five Grammy Awards. As a pair, the two were integral in creating a formula for country pop.
Minnesota-born singer-songwriter Caitlyn Smith will open the show, along with country star Devin Dawson. Smith was named one of Rolling Stone’s “Ten Artists You Need To Know” in 2017, while Dawson built his following by covering Taylor Swift on YouTube. Both released their debut albums, “Starfire” and “Dark Horse,” in January.
The all-ages show starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 14 at Matthew Knight Arena, 1776 13th St. Tickets are $69 to $119 (ticketmaster.com).
