OFFSTAGE: No Last-Minute Gifting for Faith Hill

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Don’t hate Faith Hill because she’s beautiful. Hate her because she’s even perfect about the way she handles her Christmas shopping. CMT Radio recently reported that Hill said, “I’m the kind of shopper that I do better that if I see something along the way throughout the year that reminds me of someone, I’ll grab it instead of making a list and going out and trying to find something for a person. I am horrible at that.” And when she talked about what happens when she does wait until the last minute, she admitted it gets a little impersonal. “I get too stressed out and then it gets, I end up buying something that has nothing to do with that person whatsoever,” she said. I wish I could be more like Hill and buys gifts throughout the year. In fact, I’m going to make that my New Year’s resolution for 2011.
