Faith Hill - Breathe

WE'RE BACK! Thanks again to everyone who made it very clear they want me to keep going. It really helps. And a HUGE shoutout to JenInTosa who not only said I should keep going, but also dropped some new reviews in the Suggestion Box. For her efforts, my first review back will be country - in the form of Faith Hill. Audrey Faith Perry here was born in 1967 in Ridgeland, Mississippi. She was adopted as an infant into a Christian family who also raised two biological children of their own. Her vocal talent was on display early and often, as she first sang at seven years old in front of a big audience. Her biggest influence came after seeing Elvis Presley perform at the age of 9. She was so impressed by his on stage presence, that she wanted to get into the same industry. She had all sorts of performances while in college and beyond - but couldn't quite crack the bigtime. Of course, she then decided to move to Nashville to get noticed. After auditioning as a backup for Reba McEntire - she failed to secure a job doing that, and ended up working at a music publishing firm. It was there where she met her first husband, Dan Hill. After singing whimsically around the office, co workers took a shine to her voice, and ended up getting her in the door at Warner Bros. Records. Her debut album came out in 1993 and is certified 3x platinum in the states. Not too shabby. In 1994, her marriage ended and Faith was moving onto the fame by herself. She married Tim McGraw in 1996, and her career has soared. 'Breathe' came out in 1999, and is her biggest selling record at 8x platinum in the US. We all know my stance on country music - but this isn't that sort of album. This is a country/pop crossover record, that almost seems to lean more to the pop side. Some of these tracks you could easily see someone like Whitney Houston belting out. I like it. I like the overall feel of it and the way I quickly breezed through it. It's pretty upbeat and toe-tapping, which is fun. And then there are plenty of songs to sing along to, which is always fun. Give this a run today, I think you'll enjoy it.
