WILL HER MARRIAGE TO TIM McGRAW SURVIVE THE STRESS OF ANOTHER YEAR? From humble beginnings in Star, Mississippi, Faith Hill soared to the top of the country and pop charts, becoming one of the most successful female recording artists in history. Her albums have sold millions. Up until the end of 2000, everything she touched turned to platinum. Early in 2001 she anunced that she was taking time off from her recording career to spend more time with her children and her husband, Tim McGraw. It was a fateful decision that sent her career into a decade-long tailspin. Faith Hill: The Long Road Back tells the inspirational story of the Grammy-winning singer's rise to stardom and her subsequent fall from grace. Drawing on interviews with Faith Hill, her childhood friends and teachers, music professionals, and fans, James L. Dickerson chronicles her storybook life from birth through her initial success, up to her courageous 2012 comeback. This intimate portrait of Faith Hill examines her adventurous Huck Finn-like childhood, her first marriage and divorce, her hardscrabble years as a struggling artist in Nashville, her love affair with the man who became her husband (country superstar Tim McGraw), her thoughts on marriage and motherhood, her heartbreaking search for her birth mother and her subsequent death, and her triumph over her husband's alcoholic secret life. Complete with photographs and insider information on the music industry, here at last is the whole story behind the life and music of Faith Hill-country music's most tenacious pop superstar.
