The duo first stepped onto the stage from opposite directions and clad all in black. By the end of their performance of their duet "It's Your Love," the two met in an embrace in the middle of the stage.

They were encouraged with a standing ovation.

"Hallelujah!" McGraw said. "Thank you for coming to see us. My name is Tim, and this is my wife."

"My name is Faith Hill," Hill yelled.

"We came here because we have something to say," McGraw said. "Take it away, Mama."

"We are going back on the road to tour all around the world," Hill told the Nashville audience. "We are going to go from side to side, south to north, all the way around the globe." 

"We've been looking to this for a long, long time," McGraw said.

The 65-city 2017 Soul2Soul World Tour starts April 7 in New Orleans and wraps up next October in New York City.

Presale tickets are available starting Friday, and general sales start Oct. 14.

The tour will be the couple's third major tour together.

The announcement came two days before the couple celebrates their 20-year wedding anniversary on Thursday. Hill and McGraw are getting stars on the Music City Walk of Fame on Wednesday.
