Faith Hill, one of the most successful country artists in the world, attended the Oscars last week, showing off a sleek new haircut and wearing a gorgeous floor length gown. Although most fans were focussed on her new hairstyle, a few fans that were watching her very closely as she walked down the red carpet with husband Tim McGraw, noticed that her short haircut revealed a scar on her neck.

How did Faith Hill get the Scar on her NeckThe 47 year old singer, who has sold over 40 million albums worldwide, suffered an injury a couple of years ago, resulting in some damage to her neck. Last month, Hill underwent a surgical procedure to help fix the problem. The procedure is known as anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, and is commonly used to help people who are suffering from a herniated disc.

This was not Hill’s first surgery to fix the issue. In 2011, she underwent a similar procedure for the back of her neck. Hill has been steadily recovering and will soon hopefully be pain free, although there will be many physical therapy exercises that she will need to keep working on in order for the healing to fully occur.

Tim McGraw was extremely besotted with his beautiful wife that night. He performed at the awards show, singing “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” by Glen Campbell, and also spent some time declaring how ‘hot’ his wife was looking in her glamorous gown, telling his fans how he ‘married up’.
