Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Debuted the First Single from Their New Joint Album and Fans Are FREAKING OUT
If you’re a country music fan, you’ll be well aware of the fact that last night, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw made us fall in love with love all over again. Specifically, their love of each other and our love of their music. A full 20 years after first taking the stage together at the Academy of Country Music Awards, the king and queen of the country scene stepped into the spotlight again to perform the first single from their upcoming joint album, and fans are FREAKING OUT!
Even before they took the stage, viewers were stunned by the beloved couple as they walked the red carpet and looked as gorgeous as ever. While Faith Hill wore a plum-colored gown with a subtle glittery leopard-print and thick burgundy belt, Tim McGraw matched his lady with a checkered tie, gray suit, and cowboy hat (natch!).
But as fab as their arrival was, when they took the stage, WOWZA!
When the pair walked out, we could see that McGraw had switched to a sleek black suit, bow-tie, and hat, while Hill glowed in a shimmering bronze dress that came to just below her knees.
Then, when the tune started up, the audience was immediately pulled into the duo’s performance of “Speak to a Girl.” The first song to be released from their still-unnamed album, Hill and McGraw were as on-point as ever as they absolutely blew the crowd away.
Finishing off their set with joyful jumps from Hill and a kiss and full-on embrace from McGraw that lifted Faith right off of her feet, it couldn’t have been a more perfect moment.
And fans agree…

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
