From superstar singles to married, dynamic duo, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have achieved Country Music immortality. We take a moment to look back at 12 of their biggest hits.
1. “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s” (2014)
The couple’s most powerful duet to date is a nostalgic track released as the second single from McGraw’s album "Sundown Heaven Town". Reaching No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, this hit takes one on a trip down memory lane, easily painting the picture of a couple comfortably settling into a life of old age together.
2. "Breathe" (1999)
Staying at No. 1 for six weeks of Billboard’s Hit list, “Breathe” earned Hill a Grammy for Best Country Album and her first CMA trophy for Female Vocalist of the Year. It is identified as one of the best love songs ever on country radio.
3. "Live Like You Were Dying" (2004)
Packed with powerful lyrics, this song honored his father, Tug McGraw, who passed away from a brain tumor in 2004. "Live Like You Were Dying" rose to No. 1 and earned both a Grammy and a CMA Award for Song of the Year.
4. "It's Your Love" (1997)
Released shortly after their wedding in 1996, “It’s Your Love” was the couple’s first ever duet and an enormous hit. It spent six weeks at the top of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The duet went on to win Sing, Song, Video, and Vocal Event of the Year at the ACM Awards. It was also nominated for two Grammys and won Vocal Event of the Year at the CMAs.
5. "This Kiss" (1998)
The first time Hill crossed over with substantial airplay on the pop radio was with "This Kiss". A fantasy-style production for the song won her Video of the Year at the CMAs.
6. "Don't Take the Girl" (1994)
As a follow-up to his breakthrough hit “Indian Outlaw”, McGraw embraced the format of traditional country music with this hit track. He conveyed the story of a little Johnny learning how to fish, falling in love and having his faith tested through way of tragedy.
7. "Angry All the Time" (2001)
In his most emotionally heart-wrenching vocal performances of his career, McGraw portrays the dark reality of a marriage that slowly unravels over the years. Coupled with Hill’s mournfully beautiful harmony, “Angry All the Time” was another instant hit reaching No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
8. "Something Like That" (1999)
The most played song on country radio from 2000-2010, this hit tells the tale of one’s first love. It resonated particularly with teenagers living through the experience for the very first time.
9. "Let’s Make Love" (1999)
Embracing their lives as newlyweds, Hill and McGraw created a steamy ballad to illustrate their real-life, fiery chemistry. This duet was a career single for both artists and won a Grammy for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals.
