On April 22, 1998, less than two years after marrying country singer Tim McGraw, Faith Hill performed the fun and flirty “This Kiss” at the 33rd annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

Taking the stage at the Universal Ampitheater in Universal City, California, the bubbly blonde appeared high on love. She stood between two giant flowers in her baby doll-inspired dress and belted out the effervescent tune from the top of a mini-staircase.

At the time, Faith was carrying her and Tim’s second child ,Maggie, who was due just a short few months later. So, Faith was glowing!

Aside from her pregnancy and love life, much of that year was a whirlwind for Faith, as she released her fittingly titled album, “Faith,” the day before the awards show. She also took home a whole slew of ACM trophies for her and Tim’s duet, “It’s Your Love.”

But, it was the following year when Faith received love for “This Kiss.” She nabbed the ACM Single Record of the Year and Country Music Video of The Year awards for the crossover hit.

Of course, Faith made a huge impact on the ‘90s, but’s she’s proving to be unstoppable. In fact, she and Tim plan to release a joint album later in 2017. They will also make their television debut for the project’s lead single, “Speak to a Girl,” at the 2017 ACM Awards.

The 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards are set to take place on April 2 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
