Faith was born on September 21, 1967 in Jackson, Mississippi. She was given the name Audrey Faith by her adoptive parents, Ted and Edna Perry, who raised her from the age of one week. Growing up in the tiny town of Star, Mississippi, Faith discovered music at a young age. Her early musical influences were Elvis Presley, Tammy Wynette, George Strait and Reba McIntyre, as well as the gospel choir of her church. During high school, Faith excelled in cheerleading, drama and sports, but singing remained her first love. She joined a band while still in high school and performed at rodeos, county fairs and even the Raleigh, Mississippi Tobacco Spit. Faith attended Hinds Community College, but dropped out after one semester in order to pursue her dream of becoming a singer.
Faith Hill hit the scene in 1994, with her debut album Take Me As I Am and its no. 1 single, "Wild One." Her second album, It Matters To Me, was another hit and Hill garnered awards and praise from the country music industry. The songstress's self-titled album, 'Faith, ' sold four million copies worldwide. The album featured her hit single 'This Kiss, ' which topped the charts for three straight weeks and became her first crossover success, hitting number five on the pop charts. The album also featured 'Let Me Go, ' for which Faith received a Grammy nomination in the category of Best Female Country Vocal. She is married to country singer Tim McGraw.
