There are many ways in which country music sets itself apart from all other genres. Of course, there is the music that our artists create and the heartfelt words they sing. But, there is something else.

There is a love that ties so many artists with so many of their fans – a love that you just don’t see very often in other musical genres, but a love that nonetheless shines through, especially when an artist is hurting.

And today, Faith Hill is hurting.
