Faith Hill Previews New Single for Ellen

Faith Hill spent Thursday (Aug. 30) in New York City where she performed her new single, “Red Umbrella,” during a taping of the season premiere of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The episode is set to air on Wednesday (Sept. 5). “Red Umbrella” is one of the new songs on Hill’s upcoming CD, The Hits. Scheduled to be released to country radio stations on Sept. 13, the song was written by Aimee Mayo, Chris Lindsey and Brett and Brad Warren. “It’s nerve-racking to perform a new song on television,” Hill said. “But we added ‘Red Umbrella’ to the set for the last three Soul2Soul [concert] dates, and the fans’ reaction was fantastic. So at least that gives me a bit of comfort. Fact is that it has the ingredients of any great song. It’s cleverly crafted and its message is sincere.”
