For months now, it has been rumored that Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are headed towards a divorce. Over the past few weeks, however, the country music couple announced new 2013 and 2014 tour dates. For the time being, it seems that they have silenced the cheating allegations and break up rumors.
Tim and Faith recently sat down with the press, where the couple took time to plug their upcoming performances at Las Vegas hotspot The Venetian. This isn’t the first time that the couple has performed at the venue, as McGraw explained (via LA Times):

"We made the most out of our short time in Vegas [earlier this year] and had a lot of fun onstage and offstage, but it seemed like it was over just as we were getting good and warmed up. The reaction was impossible to ignore, so it was a total no-brainer to add more shows when the Venetian asked us.”
While neither Hill nor McGraw commented on the status of their relationship, Faith was quick to emphasize the role of family in their relationship:
"Tim and I love performing together, but it's been such a scheduling challenge the last few years because we have two careers and three teenage daughters' school and social calendars to coordinate around.”
It makes sense that Faith would mention her lovely family and the focus they place on family, especially considering all of the negative press the couple has been receiving. One publication, The National Examiner, has been hitting the couple hard.
The laughable publication even roped in fellow country veteran Kenny Chesney. The rag alleged that Faith begged Kenny to stop Tim from filing for divorce. According to their “source:”
"She begged Kenny to talk with Tim and get him to stop humiliating her in public and start working on their marriage. All of Kenny's instincts were telling him to stay out of it. He argued with Faith, telling her that he and Tim have not been close lately. But Faith has also been Kenny's friend for many years and he could see she was frantic. [Chesney] eventually caved and told her he'd speak with Tim. Tim screamed, 'Stay away from Faith and keep your nose out of my business!'"
Of course, these claims were refuted by the couple’s official spokesperson. Though Tim didn’t help matters, when he showed up to the iHeartRadio Music Festival without his wedding ring.
According to a source at Hollywood Daily Life, this was a signal of the end of their relationship:
“Faith is heartbroken that her family is falling apart, and she was just blown away that Tim would take his ring off. It was a declaration of war on Faith. He stared straight at the cameras and didn’t bother to hide the fact that his wedding band was off.”
