Faith Hill Sings With Adorable Young ‘Mississippi Girl’ [Watch]
Faith Hill made a sweet memory for a young fan in Mississippi recently, joining her for a duet version of her hit "Mississippi Girl."
Hill and Tim McGraw are currently on the road for their 2017 Soul2Soul Tour, and they played a gig at the BancorpSouth Arena in Tupelo, Miss., on April 9. Hill shared the adorable video above to Instagram on Tuesday (April 18), in which she meets with a precocious young fan named Rosie, who isn't shy at all about singing with her country idol.
Rosie covers her face with her hands when she walks into the backstage and sees Hill standing there, but she warms right up to the star, who sweetly kneels down to get face-to-face with her and says, "You just made my day when I saw your video! You're precious."
She asks what Rosie wants to sing, and she replies, "Mississippi Girl" without hesitation. Hill lets Rosie start off, then joins her on the chorus of the hit from 2005, which John Rich co-wrote. It was released as the first single from Hill's Fireflies album.
"'Cause a Mississippi girl don't change her ways / Just 'cause everybody knows her name / Ain't big-headed from a little bit of fame," they sing in unison, with Rosie's strong voice carrying the melody right along with the country star.
At the end of the singalong, Rosie gives Hill a big hug as her face lights up with joy and everyone in the room erupts into applause, with Hill looking just as happy at the shared moment as her young fan.
It's just one of the special moments Hill and McGraw have already had on the tour, which marks Hill's first road trek in 10 years. On opening night in New Orleans, Hill and McGraw helped a couple who are expecting with a gender reveal.
The Soul2Soul Tour is set to run through October, and the couple have just released a new single, "Speak to a Girl," which is the first single from their upcoming first-ever joint album. That album is slated for release in 2017, and McGraw and Hill recently signed new deals with Sony Music Nashville. They debuted "Speak to a Girl" in a live performance at the 2017 ACM Awards on April 2.
