While country fans wait patiently for Faith Hill and Tim McGraw’s forthcoming joint album later this year — their first such project together after over 20 years of marriage — the pain of waiting eased a bit today when the duo released the single “Speak to a Girl.” In it, the couple sings about the virtues and necessities of appreciating, listening to, and, yes, talking to the women in your life. “Especially as a dad, ‘Speak to a Girl’ really impacted me,” McGraw tweeted this afternoon. “The message […] is so powerful,” added Hill in her own tweet. “It’s really about how we communicate as human beings.” Respecting women: What a concept! And hey, if a long-enduring power couple like Hill and McGraw has some advice about how to talk things out respectfully, you may want to listen.
