Now That's How You 'Speak to a Girl': Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Perform Newly Released Duet at ACMs

Chemistry comes easy for country superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.

The longtime couple took to the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards stage on Sunday night to perform their new duet “Speak to a Girl” — the first single off their highly anticipated joint album, slated for release later this year from Sony Music Entertainment.

Starting on opposite sides of the T-Mobile arena set-up, the couple slowly made their way toward each other for the song’s stirring final notes. Hill, in a sparkly gold dress, ended the heartfelt performance with a gleeful jump before rushing into the arms of her husband for a sweet hug and smooch.

While this album marks the first joint record for the couple, who married in 1996, they have had many collaborative projects over the span of their careers. They even won Grammys for best country collaboration with vocals in 2001 for their hit “Let’s Make Love” and, again in 2006 for “Like We Never Loved at All.”

Faith Hill And Tim McGraw Bring The Feels To The ACM Awards With Lovey Duet

Faith Hill and Tim McGraw felt the love Sunday night.

The reigning first couple of country music brought the heat to the 52nd annual Academy of Country Music Awards with the first performance of “Speak to a Girl,” the new single off their upcoming joint album.

Dressed in a sparkly, skintight dress, Hill made her way over to McGraw ― wearing a classic tux with, duh, a cowboy hat ― who joined her in the center of the T-Mobile Arena.

Singing together in pitch-perfect harmony, the duo radiated chemistry as they performed a ballad that will absolutely be stuck in your head for the next week. And just in case you weren’t swooning hard enough, they ended the performance with a sweet kiss.

Hill and McGraw are set to cross the country with their Soul 2 Soul world tour ― the first for the couple in 10 years ― starting April 7.

This was cute and all, but will any award show moment ever live up to Faith Hill’s reaction to losing Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2006 CMAs to Carrie Underwood? #NeverForget


Couple goals! Faith Hill and Tim McGraw color coordinate at the ACM Awards... before sharing a passionate on stage kiss

They have been married for two decades but these two are still a country love song.

Faith Hill and husband Tim McGraw looked as loved up as ever as they walked the ACM Awards' red carpet.

The 49-year-old songstress dazzled in red and her beau made sure to match for the country awards show in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday night.

While it was a work event, the pair treated it like date night - and double date night at that.

Inside the venue, country's favorite couple were sat near fellow A-Listers Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban and the ladies in particular were having a blast.

For the night of country and glamour, Faith stepped out in a stunning burgundy Michael Kors gown.

The long sleeve dress was draped across the star so that she showed off a little leg but kept things classy.

The Queen of Country's dress also took the same approach to cleavage as while it had a low neckline, her chest was covered.

The singer added a big red belt which fastened around her tiny waist.

The accessory matched perfectly with her stappy Neil J. Rodgers heels.

Adding just a touch of bling, the star wore some gold rings and simple yet striking earrings from Lana Jewelry.

Keeping her makeup natural - just the way her husband likes it - Faith wore earth and golden tones.

Her blonde tresses were styled so they had a little bit of volume - but not country volume - and a slight wave.

Tim meanwhile looked suave but stuck to his country roots for his look.

The 49-year-old crooner wore a grey Tom Ford suit and added a spotted red tie so that he coordinated with his wife.

But, after all, he is a cowboy at heart so wore a black cowboy hat and boots.

Before taking their seats inside, the pair shared a kiss and both posted the snap on their social media.

Inside the loving and the fun did not stop, as Tim sat with his hand on his beautiful wife's leg for most of the show.

But he did have to take a break from his leg holding at some points, as Faith and her seat mate Nicole could not sit still.

Any free moment they got, the singer and the actress chatted away with each other and everyone else near them.

When Nicole's husband Keith took to the stage, the ladies jumped up and started dancing.

The normally reserved Nicole, danced around like no one was watching while Faith did her best to keep up.

But Faith had to save some energy as she and her husband headed up on stage too.

The pair did their first live television performance of their new single Speak To A Girl.

The song is from their upcoming joint album.

For the performance, Faith changed into a stunning tight silver dress.

Tim had a big night regardless with the singer nominated for Single Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Video of the Year for track Humble and Kind.

The Grammy Award-winning couple tied the knot in October 1996 and have three daughters - Gracie, 19, Maggie, 18, and Audrey, 15.
