Tim McGraw Appears On 'Good Morning America'
Tim McGraw appeared on ABC-TV's "Good Morning AMERICA" on Tuesday Morning (Feb 28). He discussed his upcoming "SOUL2SOUL THE WORLD TOUR 2017" with wife FAITH HILL as well as the song they recorded, "Keep Your Eyes On Me," for the film "The Shack," in which MCGRAW stars.
Watch the full interview here.

Tim McGraw stars as Willie in the faith-based drama The Shack.
But it was his wifey Faith Hill who took centre stage at the film's world premiere held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City on Tuesday Feb 28, 2017. The 49-year-old “This Kiss” country songstress dazzled in a plunging Moniquel Huillier Spring 2017 silver sequinned coat dress which showcased her enviable figure. Although it was lined she cunningly gave the impression that it was sheer piece by placing her hands in the pockets (Getty Image). The velvet waistband offered and added extra depth to the below the knee silhouette and she added matching t-ar sandals. She flashed a hint of cleavage in the low-cut number which also gave a glimpse of her slender pins.

Her signature silky blonde tresses were styled straight and parted down the centre for a dramatic look.
The Mississippi-born beauty rounded out her evening attire with large vintage diamond earrings and rhinestone-encrusted strappy stilettos. McGraw, 49, was polished to perfection in a fitted dark suit with white buttoned-up shirt, lustrous silver necktie and brown leather dress shoes.
Also in attendance at the star-studded affair was Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer, 44. The Hidden Figures star, who plays Papa in the film, looked chic in a black blazer which included leather striping and matching trousers

Also in attendance were Grammy & CMA award winning singer songwriters Lori McKenna (Getty Image) who wore a knee high black dress overlayered with embroidered/ lace detailing adding fishnets and open toe black booties. Shane McAnally (Getty Image) kept it simple with a monochromatic attire with an open neck shirt. Dan Smyers looked slick in a dark suit with white lining on the lapels and crisp white button down whilst Shay Mooney looked casual in round neck T-shirt and textured burgundy jacket adding shiny black shoes.
