14. Faith Hill

When Ted and Edna Perry adopted a small infant girl in 1967, they probably did not guess that she would grow up to be one of the most successful country artists of all time. Her singing talent was noticed early on, and she was up on stages by the time she was 7 years old. At 19, she quit her college course to follow her dreams in Nashville. She became a secretary at a music publishing firm, and spent some of her extra time being a backup singer for live performances at the famous Bluebird Café. That’s where a Warner Brothers executive found and signed her to their label. From there, the music world was her’s. Starting out with a pretty traditional sound, her music eventually went to a more pop style which led her to be one of the biggest cross-over artists around. Over the course of her career, she married and had 3 daughters with #5 on this list, Tim McGraw. They became a power couple in the genre for a few years, allowing them to head out on majorly successful tours together. As their children grew, Faith made the decision to step away from the business to look after them. She has tried to come back to the industry since then, but has not gotten back to the same level she was at when she left. But that does not take away from her success, awards and broken records that she achieved over the course of her career.
