Faith Hill shared a special bond with her late mother, and the country singer wished she could speak to her now more than ever during this difficult time amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
With social-distancing rules in place amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, country singer Faith Hill found herself longing for the strength of her late mother, Edna Perry.

In a touching post to social media on Friday, Faith urged her fans not to "wait another minute" to call their mothers. Having lost her mom to ovarian cancer in November 2016, Faith explained:
"I need to talk to my mom during this time. My mom was a strong, smart, hardworking, and pragmatic. Her strength came from her faith."
Growing up, Faith's parents taught her and her brothers to treat others equally and with respect. And Faith has nothing but respect for Edna's "straight shooter" ways, as she said alongside a picture of husband Tim McGraw's cover art for his new song "I Called Mama."
Shortly after her 80-year-old mother passed, Faith shared that even though the family mourned her death, she felt grateful that Edna's "long-suffering" came to an end, knowing that she went straight to heaven.
Faith also feels blessed for the upbringing she received from Edna and her dad Wesley Perry. Since they instilled Faith and her brothers with "good Christian" values in a "God-fearing home," the country singer credited it for the reason behind her success.
Wesley and Edna adopted Faith as a baby, and she said back in 2006, that they are "responsible" for the person she became and for the things she cherishes most in life, and added:
"But the most important thing to me is about my family and that was definitely taught from my mom and dad.”
Tim and Faith also have two of their three children, Audrey and Maggie, with them at home in social-isolation, while their 23-year-old daughter Gracie currently finds herself in Los Angeles.
Even though the country singing couple "spend 90 percent" of their time together, an annoyance cropped up that Tim said drives Faith crazy.
Since Tim spent 30 years in and out of hotel rooms, the thought of cleaning up after himself just never occurred to him, but since Faith is a "neat freak," with a preference to keep "everything pretty clean," Tim always gets "on her nerves about that."
However, when Tim isn't working on Faith's nerves, the couple enjoys watching movies or television series together while just cuddling up to each other, relishing in the "homebodies" that they are.
Faith Hill met her biological mother for the first time back in the 1990s, and the country singer shared late last year that it had a profound impact on her.
Up until that point, Faith Hill had never met anyone that looked like her. But the moment she looked at her biological mother the first time, she noticed a likeness in the way they both walk and talk.
The experience "filled something" inside her, even though she couldn't help but just stare at her biological mother at first, feeling overcome with "awe" at finally seeing the person she came from.
