Everything We Know About Faith Hill and Tim McGraw’s New Album, ‘The Rest of Our Life’
What’s the only thing better than one beloved country superstar releasing a new album? Two beloved country superstars releasing a new album together! Country music’s royal couple, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, will team up to release a brand-new collaborative album in 2017.
In many ways, Hill and McGraw’s announcement of their upcoming record should not come as a surprise. Since late 2016, the couple has teamed up for everything from a sold-out Ryman Auditorium show to a song for a movie soundtrack to a full-on tour. Still, the news that Hill and McGraw will come together for their first shared album, after more than two decades of marriage and almost three decades each in the music business, is thrilling.
Below, The Boot rounds up all of the information known about Hill and McGraw’s forthcoming album.
McGraw and Hill’s collaborative album will be called The Rest of Our Life. The couple announced that news on Oct. 6 — their 21st wedding anniversary — when revealing the record’s second single.
The Release Date
The Rest of Our Life is due out on Nov. 17.
The Record Label
The new album from Hill and McGraw will be released through Sony Music Entertainment’s Arista Nashville label. Both artists signed separate deals with the company in February; per reports, their contracts each involve “multiple solo albums” as well.

On March 23, Hill and McGraw released the first single from their new album, entitled “Speak to a Girl.” The song was written by Shy Carter, Dave Gibson and Joe Spargur and co-produced by Byron Gallimore, McGraw and Hill. Hill says that, from first listen, she connected to the song “lyrically, melodically, everything.”
“It’s important that young women hear that message from the men in their lives and from the other women in their lives,” McGraw adds (quote via B104). “It’s important that the young men hear this message so they know how to speak to a girl.”
The couple performed “Speak to a Girl” at the 2017 ACM Awards on April 2.
On Oct. 6 — McGraw and Hill’s 21st wedding anniversary — the two announced “The Rest of Our Life,” their new album’s title track, as its second single. It was written by Ed Sheeran, Amy Wadge, Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac. That same day, Hill and McGraw also released the song’s music video.
