Award-winning country singer Faith Hill isn’t just a critical success – she's a commercial one, too. Hill is one of the bestselling female country artists of all time.
Hill was born and raised in Mississippi. Her voice caught the attention of her community when she was younger, and she began performing regularly at church and local events.
She moved to Nashville after briefly attending junior college, but struggled to get the attention her vocal talents clearly deserved. After an executive from Warner Records saw her performing as a backup singer in the famed Bluebird Café one evening, things started to move fast.
In 1993, Hill released her debut album Take Me as I Am, and her sophomore album It Matters To Me came out in 1995. Around that time, Hill toured with fellow country artist Tim McGraw. The two fell in love and married, with Hill deciding to take a break from music in order to focus on their family.
Hill returned in 1998 with her third album Faith, which featured a more commercial pop sound and continued adding to her popularity. Her next three albums, 1999’s Breathe, 2002’s Cry and 2005’s Fireflies, all debuted at number one on Billboard’s Country Albums chart.
As a touring artist, Hill’s solo tours and combined tours with McGraw have continually earned millions of dollars. Their 2006 Soul2Soul II tour became the highest grossing country music tour of all time, earning $90 million.
In 2017, Hill and McGraw released a duets album titled The Rest of Our Life. That same year, they were featured in a special exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame: Mississippi Woman, Louisiana Man.
Outside of music, Hill has appeared in numerous television shows and movies, including Touched by an Angel and the 2004 remake of The Stepford Wives.
