Press release of the day: Faith Hill’s high school softball injury won’t hold her back, goddammit

January 16, 2008 — Faith Hill, who has been recuperating from knee surgery, refuses to slow down. In fact, she’s not only been busy preparing for her participation in the MusiCares Aretha Franklin Tribute, but has continued recording her long overdue and much anticipated Christmas album for ’08.

A lateral release, realigning her knee-cap, Chondroplasty and a medial femoral chondyle (ouch) surely would have put most on the disabled list. But the singer doesn’t seem ready to be out very long.

Who has time to slow down? said Faith. Doctors had told me to stay off my feet for a bit and now I‘m following their rehab program. I intend to be back better and stronger, she added.

The surgery is the result of an old knee injury suffered while playing softball in high school and normal wear and tear over the years.

Faith has already been part of a hugely successful Christmas project. Her duet with Josh Groban,
The First Noel, appeared on the best-selling album of 2007, Groban’s Noel.
