NBC'S "THE VOICE" WELCOMES MUSIC SUPERSTARS FAITH HILL AND TIM McGRAW AS SEASON 11 KEY ADVISERS

In Their First Visit to "The Voice," Hill and McGraw Will Prepare Artists for the High-Stakes Knockout Rounds Airing in October

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - Oct. 4, 2016 - Award-winning music superstars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw will join "The Voice" in October as key advisers as NBC's three-time Emmy Award-winning musical-competition series rolls on.

For the first time ever, "The Voice" artists will have not one but two powerhouse key advisers to help them prepare for the next phase of the show - the all-important Knockout Rounds.

In their first visit to the show, Hill and McGraw will spend time with each of the team members and season 11 coaches Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, advising the artists on performance strategy and offering tips as they prepare for what lies ahead.

During the Knockouts, artists are paired against a teammate and will have to perform a song individually, while their direct competitor watches and waits. Once the performances are done, it's up to the coach to pick which artist stays on for the live shows and which one goes home.

"Who better to help guide our artists at this critical point than the first couple of country music, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw," said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. "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 and McGraw have countless chart-topping songs and albums, and will bring their skills as live touring artists to the show. The duo recently also announced this evening in Nashville that they are setting out on tour next spring for the Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017.

"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," said Hill. "It's important that they be able to connect with their audience."

"I really like to dig into songs and how they need to be presented in a live environment," added McGraw. "I'm looking forward to working with the coaches to help the artists reach their potential."

In addition to multiple nominations and five Grammy Awards, Hill has won an impressive list of awards, including multiple Billboard Music, American Music, People's Choice and Country Music Association Awards. She has consistently broken chart records with her #1 singles and has had major crossover success with the hits "This Kiss," "Breathe," "Cry" and "There You'll Be." Hill has had multiple albums top both the Billboard Top 100 and country charts simultaneously and has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. She has had three network TV specials that garnered top ratings and has appeared and performed on every major award show, including twice on the prestigious Academy Awards. In 2000, Hill performed the National Anthem to a global audience of over 88.5 million viewers at Super Bowl XXXIV in Atlanta and is the only country artist and one of only three artists ever to perform both "The Star Spangled Banner" and "God Bless America" at Super Bowls. This fall, Hill, alongside former "Oprah" co-executive producer and OWN executive Lisa Erspamer, will co-produce an innovative new daytime lifestyle show based in Nashville.

McGraw has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and dominated the singles charts with a stunning 41 #1 singles. He is currently riding the Billboard Country Airplay chart with three singles in the top 20, a feat he was the first to achieve, and now the first to achieve for a second time. He is the most played country artist since his debut in 1992, with two singles spending over 10 weeks at #1 ("Live Like You Were Dying" and the genre-breaking "Over and Over"). His recent multi-week #1 single "Humble and Kind," off his "Damn Country Music" album, is his 59th release to hit top 10 or better, and spawned a New York Times Best Seller book. McGraw will also be appearing in the feature film "The Shack" next year.

"The Voice" is off to a hot start so far this season, with its two premiere-week telecasts averaging a 3.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 12.2 million viewers overall in "live plus same day" results from Nielsen Media Research. Versus the prior cycle last spring, "The Voice" is up +3% in adults 18-49 (3.3 vs. 3.2) and a strong +26% in the elusive adult 18-34 category, indicative of this cycle's strength with millennial viewers.

"The Voice" is a presentation of United Artists Media Group (an MGM company), Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series was created by John de Mol, who serves as executive producer along with Mark Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Jay Bienstock, Lee Metzger and Chad Hines.
