The Rest of Our Life is the first collaborative album by American country music artists as well as husband and wife, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. It was released on November 17, 2017, by Arista Nashville. While the album marks McGraw's fifteenth overall studio album and Hill's seventh, it is the first collaborative album between the couple.[1] The album is also Hill's first studio recording of original material, not including her Christmas or compilation albums, in over twelve years.[2]

The first single from the album, "Speak to a Girl" was released on March 23, 2017 and reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.[3] The title track was released as the second single.

Promotion[edit]

Prior to the album's release, Hill and McGraw embarked upon the Soul2Soul World Tour, which included a set list composed of both artist's greatest hits and material from The Rest of Our Life. The tour will continue into 2018 with the duo also headlining the C2C: Country to Country festival throughout the UK in March 2018.

Coinciding with the album's November 17 release date, an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, titled Mississippi Woman, Louisiana Man, was opened to celebrate the careers of both Hill and McGraw.[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Giving it three out of five stars, Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic wrote that "it's an album designed to be played on lazy Sunday afternoons, on long drives, and doing housework, a soundtrack to everyday life. As such, it can veer toward background music, but it's enlivened by the chemistry between McGraw and Hill."[5]

Commercial performance[edit]

The Rest of Our Life debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, and No. 1 on Top Country Albums, with 98,000 copies (104,000 album-equivalent units) sold in the first week.[6] The album has sold 231,300 copies in the United States as of October 2018.[7]
