He had to cancel his show at the now demolished amphitheater in 2015, however, after his doctors placed him on vocal rest.

For Hill, this round of Soul2Soul marks the first time she's toured since 2007 and she brought her A game during moments in the solo spotlight and as she teamed up with McGraw for a slew of duets. Sure, she flubbed on the lyrics during "This Kiss," but she laughed at herself and moved right along, recovering well with a moodier, sultry version of "Breathe," during which she let her vocals soar. …
