Her first album was produced by Scott Hendricks, who had previously had some success with Brooks And Dunn and Restless Heart. Her sparkling debut US country single,the rocking 'Wild One', topped the country charts and she followed it with a version of Janis Joplin 's 'Piece Of My Heart', another cheerful country-rocker. Take Me As I Am was successful, but surgery on her vocal cords delayed the making of It Matters To Me. This included a song about wife-beating, 'A Man's Home Is His Castle', a duet with Shelby Lynne, 'Keep Walkin' On', and a song written for her by Alan Jackson, 'I Can't Do That Anymore'. Her regular band features Trey Grey (drums), Steve Hornbeak (keyboards), Tom Rutledge (guitar, fiddle), Anthony Joyner (bass), Lou Toomey (lead guitar), Karen Staley (guitar, vocals) and is masterminded by dobro and steel guitarist Gary Carter.Much of Hill's popularity has been fuelled by having one of the best touring bands in the business. 'It Matters To Me' was a further US country chart topper in 1996. In 1997 she recorded with her husband Tim McGraw, resulting in the number 1 hit and CMA Award-winning 'It's Your Love'.
