Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Take Manhattan For the Premiere of “The Shack”

New York City’s Museum of Modern Art was getting countrified Tuesday night (Feb.28) when Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Dan+Shay, Lori McKenna and songwriter Shane McAnally hit the red carpet for the world premiere of “The Shack.”

The movie, based on the New York Times best-selling book of the same name, stars Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer and Tim McGraw and will open in theaters nationwide on Friday, March 3.

But it’s the film’s soundtrack, released on Feb. 24, that features songs by country’s elite, including Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, who co-penned “Keep Your Eyes On Me,” with Lori McKenna and Shane McAnally, Dierks Bentley (“Days of Dark”), Lady Antebellum (“Lay Our Flowers Down”), Brett Eldredge (“Phone Call to God”), Dan + Shay (“When I Pray for You”) and more.

The stars dined on French food during the Lionsgate Hosts the World Premiere of The Shack after party held at Gabriel Kreuther restaurant, located opposite Bryant Park in New York City.

Check out the trailer for The Shack.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
