“Faith Hill and Tim McGraw both came to Nashville in the 1980s with big dreams and huge talent,” Nashville mayor Megan Barry said in a statement. “Tim and Faith have made a big difference in our city, not only with their music but also with their generous contributions to many important causes.”
McGraw and Hill, who have been married since 1996, have sold more than 80 millions albums combined, and have won a combined 17 CMA awards.
The couple, who last performed together as part of their Soul2Soul residency in Las Vegas, will join a who’s who of musicians, producers and songwriters as they earn the 73rd and 74th stars on the Music Row Walk of Fame, which was founded in 2006 in Nashville’s Music Mile. Previous inductees include country stalwarts Dolly Parton and Ernest Tubb to recent Nashville ambassadors Kings of Leon, Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert.
Last year, the Music City Walk of Fame honored Loretta Lynn and Jack White.
McGraw and Hill’s induction ceremony will take place October 5th at the Walk of Fame Park downtown.
