The Voice is bringing in some major talent for season 11. Not one, but two country music superstars will be advising the contestants during the Knockout Rounds — and they just so happen to be married to each other.
NBC has announced that Faith Hill and Tim McGraw will be the key advisers for this season’s Knockouts. The two of them will be on hand to help all four teams.

“Who better to help guide our artists at this critical point than the first couple of country music, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw,” Paul Telegdy, President of Alternative and Reality Group at NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. “Our artists and our viewers will love hearing from two of the most talented and highly decorated performers working in the music industry today.”
Hill said, “I think having the perspective of performing live in many different venues, from clubs to stadiums, will help us in working with the Voice artists this season. It’s important that they be able to connect with their audience.”
McGraw added, “I really like to dig into songs and how they need to be presented in a live environment. I’m looking forward to working with the coaches to help the artists reach their potential.”
In the Knockouts, the contestants are paired up and each singer performs separately. Then their coach picks one artist to stay and the other is sent home.
This is the first time that the Knockouts will have two advisers. Previous key advisers include Chris Martin, Taylor Swift, Nate Ruess, Rihanna and current coach Miley Cyrus.

Faith Hill has won five Grammy Awards and sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, while her husband Tim McGraw has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, with three Grammys, and is the most played country artist ever since he made his debut in 1992.
The husband and wife duo will be hitting the road together, for the Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017, the first time they’ve done so in a decade. They’ll travel to 65 cities throughout 2017.
