Personalities | Faith Hill | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, b. 1967)

Born Audrey Faith Perry, Hill moved to Nashville in 1986, where she was discovered singing back-up to singer-songwriter Gary Burr at the Bluebird Café. Hill made an instant and huge impact when in 1994 her debut single, ‘Wild One’, topped the country chart for four weeks. Effortlessly crossing over to pop, her Take Me As I Am album (1993) was certified triple platinum. A cover of Janis Joplin’s ‘Piece Of My Heart’ gave her a second No. 1 single, and Breathe (1999) not only sold eight million copies, but the title track topped the country singles charts for six weeks and, like This Kiss (1998), made the Top 10 in the US pop chart.
