Some of Faith Hill‘s biggest hits have come as duets with her superstar husband, Tim McGraw, but the Mississippi born singer has a talent that is all her own. Hill has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and experienced a surge of popularity outside of her husband’s giant shadow in the late 1990s like no other artist before her.
In recent years, Faith has taken some time off from the recording studio and stage, but has hits to her credit, everyone should still have in their regular rotation.
8 Faith Hill Hits You Should Still Be Listening To On Repeat:
1. “Someone Else’s Dream” // 1996
The fuller, mid ’90s version of Kacey Musgraves’ “Pageant Material” and a lot like Reba McEntire’s “Is There Life Out There,” this hit is all about going after more than the average American dream.
2. “It Matters To Me” // 1995
This heartbreaking love song was Faith’s first song on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart and it still tears us apart 20 years later.
3. “Piece of My Heart” // 1994
Faith didn’t have to be Janis Joplin to make this cover a big-time hit. Her countrified version of the classic hit No. 1 and was on her debut album.
4. “This Kiss” // 1998
A major crossover hit in 1998, the song features the brilliant line,” All I wanted was a white knight /With a good heart, soft touch, fast horse.” Isn’t that what all women are looking for?
5. “Breathe” // 1999
Understandably, this Faith hit may have fallen out of your rotation because it was the most played song of 2000, after reaching the top of Billboard‘s Hot Country chart for 6 weeks in 1999 and hit No. 2 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 in April 2000. Billboard also ranked it as one of the most successful songs of the 2000s.
6. “The Way You Love Me” // 2000
Sure, sometimes you think you’re listening to “This Kiss,” but who really cares?
7. “Wild One” // 1993
Faith’s first No.1 spent a long 4 weeks at the top of the chart and served as quite the coming out party for her.
8. “Mississippi Girl” // 2005
This John Rich written tune was Faith’s last No. 1 single and was nominated for Best Female Country Vocal Performance at the 2006 GRAMMY Awards.
