Photos: Tim McGraw, Faith Hill preview Venetian show at CMAs
There couldn’t have been a better and smarter way to promote their upcoming mini-residency at the Venetian. Country king and queen Tim McGraw and Faith Hill previewed new songs at the 2012 Country Music Association Awards last Thursday in Nashville, and more than 13.5 million viewers tuned into the 3-hour ABC special, giving the Alphabet Network the night’s big win.
The platinum pair joined forces to duet for a tribute to legendary Willie Nelson. They are so much in love, you just know they’re flirting while singing together. We’ll get to experience that emotional, loving magic when they start their residency Dec. 7 in the former theater of “Phantom -- the Las Vegas Spectacular.” “Soul2Soul” has a preliminary 10-week run.
Faith performed “American Heart” solo on the 46th annual CMA Awards, and Tim performed his new single “One of Those Nights.”
Also on the red carpet in Nashville, 2012 Miss America Laura Kaeppeler, who won the pageant at Planet Hollywood last January. The Wisconsin beauty is back to crown her successor Jan. 12 at the 86th annual pageant. She won raves in a gold Joseph Ribkoff dress.
Laura was the guest of ABC, Miss America’s TV partner, as was 2012 Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Rachel Wyatt. ABC airs the pageant from PH Live! (formerly the Theater for the Performing Arts).
