Faith Hill Catches 'Fireflies' This Summer

Published: 2005-05-24
Faith Hill, one of contemporary country music's reigning queens, is securing her place on the throne. "Mississippi Girl," Hill's first single in nearly two years, also happened to become the singer's highest chart debut earlier this month. The video for the song will almost certainly make a strong showing as well; see it debut this Thursday, May 26th, on Country Music Television's Top 20 Countdown.

Hill can in part thank Adam Schoenfield and Big & Rich's John Rich, who penned the music and lyrics for "Mississippi Girl," for its success, not such a bad way to launch a new album. Not having such a bad year himself, Rich has contributed at least one other track to Hill's newest effort, according to rumour.

"Music is, and always should be, about evoking an emotion or expressing a passion or feeling, and this song does just that for me," says Hill about "Mississippi Girl." "It's easier for me to express what's in my heart by telling people to listen to what I sing, rather than to what I say."

Fireflies, the full-length from which "Mississippi Girl" is taken, will hit shelves across the continent in two months time. Aimed for release on August 2nd through Warner Bros., Fireflies is the follow-up to Cry, released back in October 2002.
