Upon its release, "There You'll Be" became Hill's highest-charting single in the United Kingdom and Ireland, reaching numbers three and four respectively. The song also topped the charts of Canada, Portugal and Sweden and became a top-ten hit in the United States and several European nations. The song's music video was directed by Michael Bay, who also directed Pearl Harbor. The video was set in the same time period as the film and drew many parallels.

Chart performanceEdit

Released in May 2001, "There You'll Be" reached a peak of number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 2001 due to strong airplay. No commercial CD single was released because producers wanted to boost sales of the Pearl Harbor soundtrack, which forced the song to chart solely on airplay in the United States. The song also reached number 11 on the Billboard Country Singles Chart. The song was a big hit on the Adult Contemporary chart, staying at number one for 11 non-consecutive weeks. It was also popular in Canada, as it topped the singles chart in September and October 2001.

"There You'll Be" is by far Faith Hill's biggest hit single in the UK to date, debuting and peaking at number three on the UK Singles Chart in June 2001 and spending 15 weeks inside the Top 75. On September 20, 2008, a contestant named Amy Connelly sang the song in her auditions of The X Factor.[3] Her performance reduced the judges to tears and the viewing public liked it so much[citation needed] that it renewed interest in the original Faith Hill rendition of the song, and the track re-entered the UK Singles Chart at number 10 the next week based purely on downloads, which gave the song an extra four weeks inside the Top 75.

The song was nominated in 2002 for the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, but lost out to "I'm Like a Bird" by singer Nelly Furtado.[4] The song also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song, but also lost to Randy Newman's "If I Didn't Have You" from Disney/Pixar's Monsters, Inc..[5]
