Born Audrey Faith Perry in Jackson, Mississippi on September 21, 1967, country singer Faith Hill has sold over forty million records worldwide, consisting of eight Number One singles and three Number One albums on the country charts. Hill has also won a variety of awards, including three Grammys. Hill has been singing since she was seven years old, her first public appearance being at a 4-H luncheon that year. When she was nineteen, she moved to Nashville, where she pursued her dream of becoming a country star. There, she landed a job as a secretary at a music publishing firm, where she was overheard singing by one of her coworkers and soon after was a demo artist for the company.
Hill’s debut album, Take Me as I Am, was a success on the charts, with the single “Wild One” peaking at Number One for four consecutive weeks. The album also featured the single “Piece of My Heart,” which also reached the Number One spot. It was followed by the title track, which peaked at Number Two. After her first album, Hill faced a line of successes, with more Number One singles like “It Matters to Me,” “This Kiss,” “Let Me Let Go” and “Breathe.” She has reached the Top 10 a number of times with singles like “Let’s Go to Vegas,” “Someone Else’s Dream,” “The Secret of Life” and “Let’s Make Love.”
Hill has been nominated for fifteen Grammy Awards, and has won five of them. IN 2001, she won three: Best Female Country Vocal Performance for “Breathe,” Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for “Let’s Make Love” with Tim McGraw, and Best Country Album for Breathe. In 2003, she won the Best Female Country Vocal Performance again for “Cry,” and in 2006 she was again awarded with the Best Country Collaboration with Vocals with Tim McGraw on “Like We Never Loved at All.”
She has also received twelve Academy of Country Music Awards, four American Music Awards, four People’s Choice Awards and three Country Music Association Awards, among others.
In 1988, Faith married music publishing executive Daniel Hill. Though their marriage ended in ’94, she kept his last name. In 1996, she began touring with fellow country artist Tim McGraw on the Spontaneous Combustion Tour. At that time, Hill was engaged again to her former producer, Scott Hendricks, while McGraw had just broken off his own engagement. During the tour, they became attracted to one another and married in October of that year. Since then, they have had three daughters. Hill and McGraw have performed on a number of duets together, starting with “It’s Your Love,” which was certified 2x Platinum and peaked at Number One on the U.S. charts.
