Tim McGraw and Faith Hill gathered in sunny downtown Nashville today (Oct. 5) to receive their stars on the Music City Walk of Fame, a fitting tribute as the couple celebrates their 20th wedding anniversary on Oct. 6.
Faith was honored first with the 73rd star on the Walk of Fame and was presented the award by her good friend Reba McEntire, who addressed the crowd as Faith was presented the plaque.
“There are so many people out here that are more responsible for all of my success than I am,” Faith said in her speech. “Thank you all so much. I love every single one of you. To the fans, we all know that nothing would be possible without you, truthfully. To our family, oh Lord,” Faith said as she began to cry. “Thank you, I love you so much. My big brother, thank you. God bless you, God bless this town of Nashville, Tennessee. I am so honored to accept this star on the Walk of Fame.”
Tim McGraw received the 74th star on the Walk of Fame and was also presented his plaque by Reba..
“I love Tim with all my heart,” Reba said. “And Tim and Faith have done so much for Nashville. They’ve done so much for me because friendship in this business is the A-number one thing. So I want to introduce to you a good looking hunk of man, Tim McGraw.”
Accepting his plaque, Tim had a few words for the crowd. “It’s so good to be here on a beautiful day in a city that I love so much with so many people that I love so much,” Tim said, getting choked up when he looked over at his mom. “Fortunately for me, I had a lot of great people around me. I had the support of my family, for sure, who when I told them I was going to quit college and move to Nashville, they said ‘Go ahead.’ I’ve had so many wonderful friends, so many people who stood beside me, so many people who supported me, so many people who had my back in times when maybe I didn’t deserve it. I want you all to know that I appreciate it.”
But that’s not all for happy couple. The night before (Oct. 4), Tim and Faith also announced, via their social media platforms, that they will be coming to NBC’s The Voice as two key advisors—a first for the show.

“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,” Faith said in a statement. “It’s important that they be able to connect with their audience.”
“I’m looking forward to working with the coaches to help the artists reach their potential,” Tim added.
Beginning Oct. 24, Tim and Faith will help out coaches Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keyes and Blake Shelton as mentors on the popular show.
Congratulations to Tim and Faith, who have been having one heck of an anniversary week!
