Faith Hill Tickets for Sale

One of the biggest female country stars of the '90s, Faith Hill also took advantage of the inroads Shania Twain made into pop territory, becoming an enormous crossover success by decade's end. Of course, Hill's movie star good looks certainly helped her cause, and her much-celebrated marriage to fellow country star Tim McGraw gave her career an extra kick of glamour and mystique. Hill may not have appealed to country purists, but she had the star power of a diva even before her pop success.

Faith Hill (born September 21, 1967) is an American country singer of the 1990s, known for her remarkable pop success as well as her much-publicized marriage to singer Tim McGraw. Hill was born in Jackson, Mississippi and began singing at a very early age. After graduating high school, Hill went to college briefly before dropping out and moving to Nashville in an attempt at starting a singing career. She also briefly married a music executive named Dan Hill. Working as a secretary to a music publishing company, Hill's singing was noticed as she sang to herself one day. She soon signed to Warner Brothers Records.

Hill released her debut album, Take Me as I Am, in late 1993, with producer Scott Hendricks (also her boyfriend) at the helm. Success wasn't long in coming; the lead single "Wild One" raced up the country charts en route to a four-week run at number one early the next year, making her the first female country singer in 30 years to top the charts for that long with her debut single. The follow-up, a countrified cover of Janis Joplin's "Piece of My Heart," also hit number one, as did the album's title track, and Take Me as I Am wound up selling over two million copies. Hill was set to build on her success right away, but had to undergo surgery on her vocal cords, which delayed recording of her next album. Nevertheless, the wait wasn't unreasonable, and It Matters to Me appeared in the summer of 1995. The title track became her fourth number one country single, and it was accompanied by a string of Top Ten hits that helped push sales of the album past the three million mark. Hill was by now a firmly established country hit maker, and she continued her active touring schedule by teaming up with Tim McGraw in 1996 for the Spontaneous Combustion Tour; it was an apt name, as Hill broke off her engagement to Hendricks to marry McGraw that October. The couple's first child, daughter Gracie, was born in May of 1997, and not long after, their duet "It's Your Love" — recorded for McGraw's Everywhere album — was burning up the country charts, hitting number one for six weeks.

Hill returned in the spring of 1998 with Faith, which provided the first signs that she was interested in crossing over to pop audiences, even if the still-countrified music often straddled the fence instead of making her ambitions explicit. The single "This Kiss" proved the savvy of her approach; not only did it top the country charts for three weeks, but it also became her first pop hit, climbing to number seven. By the time "This Kiss" had run its course on the charts, Hill had given birth to her second daughter by McGraw, Maggie. If Hill had been a star in the country world, she was now rapidly becoming a superstar, known not just for her music but also her pure celebrity; she also signed an endorsement deal with Cover Girl makeup. Her next two singles, "Just to Hear You Say That You Love Me" (another duet with McGraw) and "Let Me Let Go," hit number one country, though they didn't duplicate the pop success of "This Kiss." Faith became Hill's biggest-selling album yet, moving over five million copies and reaching the Top Ten on the LP charts; plus, it was now crystal clear that Hill potentially held major crossover appeal. Accordingly, she re-entered the studio immediately after her supporting tour and cut Breathe, a full-fledged bid for pop and adult contemporary success. Breathe entered the charts at number one upon its release in late 1999, and its title track became Hill's biggest hit yet; it spent six weeks on top of the country charts and was an even bigger hit on the adult contemporary charts. While it only climbed to number two pop, the single had such staying power that it wound up the biggest hit of the year 2000. The follow-ups were pretty successful in their own right: "The Way You Love Me" and "There You'll Be" both hit the pop Top Ten, with the former topping the country charts and the latter hitting number one AC. Hill also scored a Top Ten country hit with "Let's Make Love," a third duet with McGraw, and the two teamed up for another tour in 2000. Hill's fame grew rapidly as she signed an endorsement deal with Cover Girl makeup and released Breathe, an even more successful pop hit that became one of the biggest albums of 2000 (see 2000 in music). "The Way You Love Me", "There You'll Be" and "Let's Make Love" were also commercially successful singles. In 2002, Hill released Cry. The title track from Cry was written and originally performed by Angie Aparo.
