Tim McGraw and Faith Hill spend a lot of time together at home and on the road during their Soul 2 Soul tour and they wouldn't have it any other way. 
Tim says he loves watching his wife sing and perform every night and watch the magic she creates on stage. They feel like they are creating a legacy that their three daughters will have after they are gone.
And, apparently the two share a lot of PDA when they are performing together. Tim and Faith will be at the Q in Cleveland on August 17th!

Miranda Lambert has a lot of pets…
Lady A is planning on having a blast on the road…

Miranda Lambert is known for love of animals, but it’s been awhile since she has let us know about a total head count.
According to a recent post on Facebook, she has seven dogs, four cats, five horses and two mini-horses. Miranda usually brings at least one dog on the road with her, and she still has her Redemption Ranch animal shelter in Oklahoma. 

Lady Antebellum promise a good time on their You Look Good tour -- onstage and offstage. 
Charles Kelley tells Rolling Stone, "It should be a party. And we have a lot of fun backstage. We aren't one of those bands that sits on our bus all day. We pull out the ping-pong table, and invite everybody in to have a drink."
Lady A are working up some songs that all three acts on tour can do together during the show. Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young are on the road with them.
The tour kicks off Friday in Bakersfield, California and stops at Blossom on July 21st.
