In 2001, she recorded "There You'll Be" for the Pearl Harbor soundtrack and it became an international hit and her best-selling single in Europe. Hill's next two albums, Cry (2002) and Fireflies (2005), were both commercial successes and kept her mainstream popularity; the former spawned another crossover single, "Cry", which won Hill a Grammy Award, and the latter produced the hit singles "Mississippi Girl" and "Like We Never Loved at All", which earned her another Grammy Award.

Source Notes

Lepoivre quotes 3:30 AM in James Dickerson's biography: "Faith Hill: The Long Road Back." However, the book has been checked and contains no time of birth. Hill was adopted and indeed Dickerson writes in his book, "Public records on the birth are sealed under court order."
