ACM Awards 2017: Faith Hill and Tim McGraw debut 'Speak to a Girl'
Country music powerhouses Tim McGraw and Faith Hill announced plans for a joint album in February, and on Sunday night at the 52nd annual ACM Awards in Las Vegas, the two performed the record's first single, "Speak to a Girl," for the first time.
The tune is a strummy, mid-tempo ballad with a strong message of female respect and empowerment. "You better respect your mama, respect the hell out of her," Hill sings, "because that's how you talk to a woman, and that's how you speak to a girl." Towards the end of the triumphant performance, Hill excitedly jumped up and down on stage before embracing McGraw.

The duo's appearance was a celebration of another milestone: Hill and McGraw first performed together at the ceremony 20 years ago.
