The Rest of Our Life
After two decades of marriage and duets, country music’s power couple make their first joint album. With sugarcoated lullabies (“Sleeping in the Stars”) and tender tributes to long-haul love (“Damn Good at Holding On,” “The Rest of Our Life”), it’s a best-of-times portrait of a blissful marriage that seems fit for a black-and-white Hollywood flick. You’ve got to hand it to them: their wistful harmonies and impassioned hooks feel burning and sincere. In the Hill-McGraw household, maybe dancing in wheat fields under a half-moon is just another Friday night.
