Artist of the Day
Susan Rae Hill was born in Irving, TX. Her first single — recorded using her mother's maiden name of Ashton to avoid confusion with Kim Hill — gained an audience with CCM radio listeners around America in 1991, and made her album Wakened by the Wind the biggest-selling debut in the history of the Sparrow label. She has received numerous awards and accolades including the Dove award for New Artist of the Year. In addition to her solo work, she teamed with pals Margaret Becker and Christine Dente to release the fan favorite Along the Road. In 1999 she branched out and released a mainstream market country album on Capitol Records.
