My favorite person in Nashville is Faith Hill, she said. She's been my idol since I saw her on both VH1 and CMT when I was about 10. I loved how she was taking country music to bigger audiences, and her grace in the spotlight. Since I put out my first album, Faith has been a welcoming and warm presence in my life, time after time. She sends flowers on my birthday and sent me cookies when I got sick.

Who else is on her top favorite list? It's Kenny Chesney.

About him she says, He's so supportive and always makes sure I know he's in my corner. He sends little notes of encouragement, and I know I can ask him for advice any time.
