Faith Hill is one successful country artist: She's sold more than 40 million records worldwide, earned five Grammy Awards and achieved mainstream and crossover success. But one of the best parts of her career (besides being married to fellow country star Tim McGraw) is the plethora of music videos she's filmed.
From spunky and lighthearted to sultry and passionate, and from desert sands to the Eiffel Tower, Hill's music videos are always entertaining, and, better yet, they always speak to her fans. These are The Boot's picks for her Top 5 music videos.
Directed by Joseph Kahn (the mastermind behind Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" and "Bad Blood" videos), Hill's "The Way You Love Me" depicts the singer as several different characters: waitress, mother, nurse, meteorologist, policewoman, robber and heiress. But our favorite part she plays? When she's just Hill, with tangled bedhead (but ultra-sexy) hair, donning a comfy tank top and shorts.
When do we not love Hill and husband McGraw together? Never. From their red carpet PDA to their live performances -- and, of course, in the music video for "It's Your Love" -- their romance is palpable. In the clip, which won Video of the Year at the 1998 ACM Awards, not only are the singers obviously madly in love, but Hill was pregnant with their first daughter, Gracie. When we think true love, we think of this video.
Hill's "This Kiss" music video will put a smile on your face even on the gloomiest of days. It features the singer in a fantasy wonderland, swinging on a nectarine, riding bumble bees, delicately jumping from balloon to balloon and standing atop gigantic flowers. There's so much color in this video, which used CGI technology and was one of the first in country music to be so creative, and it won her Video of the Year at the 1998 CMA Awards. Plus, Hill was hiding a fun surprise: She was pregnant with her second daughter, Maggie, during the filming of the video.
Paris. The Eiffel Tower. Hill and McGraw. "Let's Make Love." Pretty much enough said, right? The song itself won the pair a Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration in 2001, but the music video captured fans' hearts in a huge way. Filmed entirely in black and white and shot in the most romantic city in the world, "Let's Make Love" spotlights the chemistry, passion and deep love between the couple.
"Breathe" is undoubtedly the sexiest music video of Hill's career thus far. She reveals her sultry side, making it one of the most controversial, yet memorable, clips. The "Breathe" video takes place in the desert, and in some parts, Hill is standing on the sand, wearing a slinky white dress ... but that's not the part everyone remembers. In most of the video, Hill is covered by a sheet (and nothing else) as she sings -- and the image of the gorgeous blonde, her tan skin and not much to cover her up is what got everyone talking.
