Country Music Superstar Faith Hill celebrates her 46 birthday today, and can we say that she gets more and more beautiful with age? Take a look at her career throughout the years.
In 1993 Faith Hill burst onto the Country Music scene with the album “Take Me As I Am.” She went on to win the Top Female Vocalist award at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
In 1996 the songbird fell in love and married Country Music Superstar Tim McGraw on October 6 of that year. Since being married they have vowed to never spend more than 3 days apart. Wow! She later gave birth to her first daughter Gracie.
1998 was a major turning point in Faith’s career. She scored her first ever pop crossover hit with “This Kiss” which peaked at #7 on the charts.
The follow up to her pop crossover breakthrough was “Breathe” released in 1999. The track reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. We began to see a sexier side of Faith Hill.
In 2001 after getting her hair braided in the French West Indies, it became brittle and dry. Faith decided to chop it all off and sported this radical blunt bob haircut – one of the most talked about haircuts at the time. She later admitted that this was one of her most favorite haircuts. In 2002 she received a Grammy Award for the album “Cry.”
The Country Girl was back in 2005 with the album “Fireflies,” including the No. 1 ‘Mississippi Girl.’ Her look began to mature.
In 2011 Faith Hill released her new single “Come Home” at the 2011 CMA Awards.
At the 2014 ACM Awards Faith Hill made an appearance with dark blonde locks and a beautiful smokey blue gown proving that the Country Music star is truly a timeless beauty.
