Faith Hill and Tim McGraw took their Soul2Soul Tour to the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo., on April 27, which also happened to be the first day of the NFL Draft.
Faith found out the hard way that the “NFL” is still a sore subject for St. Louis fans, whose former home team—the Rams—relocated to Los Angeles last year.
Before the show kicked off, Faith addressed the crowd by saying, “I have to confess something. Do you know what I was watching before I came out here? The NFL Draft.”
That’s when the boo-birds came out.
“What? You’re booing me? What the heck?” said Faith, as Tim began to explain that the fans were booing the Rams, not her. The sports buff and showman that he is, Tim assuaged the situation by giving a shout-out to St. Louis’ NHL and MLB teams. Tim’s well-timed rescue was received with fervent cheers from the spunky crowd.
