NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Faith Hill and Tim McGraw will return this summer for another go-round of their hugely successful Soul2Soul tour. "This is why we get into this business," McGraw said Wednesday in announcing the shows with Hill. "To be on stage and sing in front of thousands of people."

The Jeep-sponsored tour kicks off June 6 in Omaha, Neb., and ends Aug. 10 in Anaheim, Calif. It includes shows in major cities in the U.S. and Canada, as well as some smaller markets.

Last year's version was selected as Pollstar magazine's "Major Tour of 2006," in front of tours by such powerhouses as Madonna and The Rolling Stones.

Hill said they'll be bringing the same stage - which combines a performance platform and a video screen - with them this year.

"There's so much more that stage can do," Hill said. "It's a phenomenal piece of art."

McGraw promised a different song list and other changes, though he said there are "certain songs you have to do or get run out of town."

"I still feel like I'm a kid when I get out there and do this. And I get to do it with my wife," he said.
