It's a big week for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill: In addition to announcing a co-headlining 2017 tour on Tuesday night (Oct. 4), being inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame on Wednesday (Oct. 5) and celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary on Thursday (Oct. 6), the country power couple has been revealed as The Voice's Season 11 Key Advisers.
Beginning with the Battle Rounds, which start on Monday (Oct. 10), McGraw and Hill will offer advice and pointers to The Voice contestants on all four coaches' teams. It is the first time that two musicians have filled the Key Adviser role together.
"I think having the perspective of performing live in many different venues, from clubs to stadiums, will help us in working with The Voice artists this season," Hill says in a statement (quote via EOnline). "It's important that they be able to connect with their audience."
Adds McGraw, "I really like to dig into songs and how they need to be presented in a live environment. I'm looking forward to working with the coaches to help the artists reach their potential."
In addition to McGraw and Hill, contestants on Blake Shelton's team will be able to seek advice from Bette Midler, Team Blake's Season 11 mentor; additionally, Miley Cyrus has teamed up with Joan Jett; Sammy Hagar will mentor Adam Levine‘s team; and Alicia Keys has Charlie Puth helping out her team members. Country fans will also see Billy Gilman on The Voice this season; the "One Voice" singer joined Team Adam during auditions.
The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8PM ET on NBC. McGraw and Hill's 2017 Soul2Soul Tour will begin in New Orleans, La., on April 7, 2017, and run through the end of October, hitting a total of 65 cities.
