Faith Hill: 10 Things You May Not Know About This Southern Celeb Mom (Photos)

Faith Hill at the CMA Awards 2011.

Faith Hill performed on the CMA Awards 2011 last night for the first time in five years, and as always, she did an amazing job! With her powerful voice and undeniable stage presence, Faith still remains one of the biggest names in country music.

Faith has been happily married to her husband, singer Tim McGraw, since 1996, and they live a laid-back life in Nashville with their three daughters, Grace, Audrey, and Maggie.

While watching Faith onstage and seeing her sitting in the audience last night at the Country Music Awards, I couldn’t help but think about what an amazing success story she is. Faith worked hard for everything she has in life, and her country music career didn’t exactly fall right into her lap.

Take a look at the photos below to find out 10 things you may not know about Faith Hill, including the time that she got shot down by a country music legend!
