Faith Hill, “Lost”
Hill taps into her skills as a pop singer once again, wrapping her smoky vocals around a sultry decla
ration of passion. The conceit of the lyric is novel, and she conveys the intensity of a person who hasn’t been very lucky in love but has now found it, and is willing to lose control in exchange for the feelings she’s discovered. It won’t her win any converts among traditional country fans, but I’m thankful we still have women like Hill who are versatile enough to sing whatever style they’re in the mood for, which is itself a country music tradition.
