8. “It Matters To Me”

“It Matters To Me” was released in 1995, portraying an unconventional twist on a classic love song. The emotional value of losing a once-solid relationship took a toll on the singer as she sang how when they don’t talk, don’t touch, or don’t feel like they’re in love matters to her. This title track of Hill’s second album paves the way for her to enter the chart competition on Billboards all-genre Hot 100.

7. “There You’ll Be”

Do you want to know some fun facts about this particular Faith Hill song? Well, “There You’ll Be” was actually first offered to Celine Dion. However, following her Titanic soundtrack’s success, Dion did not want to record another romantic ballad for a soundtrack. Thus, it was recorded by Hill.

Furthermore, it dominated the charts and got a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2001.

6. “Someone Else’s Dream”

Faith Hill songs are known to tug at listeners’ heartstrings. Songwriters Trey Bruce and Craig Wiseman wrote this song for a young Faith Hill in 1996.

Through the lyrics, you can feel that the country singer strongly identifies with the song’s message as she grew up in a prophetically named hometown in Mississippi.

5. “Wild One”

Young women are born to be wild. And that’s what this song wants to prove. Since society began, females are perceived as prim and proper based on” the standard.” However, modern country music, like the “Wild One” track, begs to break free not only on the parental clutches but also in societies.
