Faith Hill, who after a five year hiatus, returned to the stage last night at the CMA Awards to perform her new single, "Come Home," revealed to Robin Roberts on her In the Spotlight special that she has reconnected with a brother that she never knew she had.
The country superstar was adopted when she was a baby, however in 1993 she decided to find her birth parents and found that she had a long lost brother along the way.
"There was a period of time when I first moved to Nashville [Tennessee], like the first couple of years, that I was just simply lost. That's when I went on a search for my birth family. And it was all by divine intervention that it happened," she said.
Hill wasn't ready to share the entire story quite yet, including the whereabouts of her family, but revealed that she may one day. "It was meant for me to find her. One day, if I ever feel comfortable talking about the whole story, I will. But, in the process I found a full brother... So we needed one another," she said.
Helping her through the difficult process of finding her birth family was her husband, Tim McGraw. "Tim inspires me every day in many, many ways," she reveals. "I draw inspiration from his assertiveness and from watching him being a father and a husband."
Hill, 44, says that her new album, which drops early next year, "truly represented where I am in life," she told People magazine in their annual "I Count My Blessings" issue. Her new single, "Come Home," can be currently downloaded from iTunes.
