Faith Hill released "Let Me Let Go" in September of 1998, as the third single from her Faith album, but the song, co-written by Steve Diamond and Dennis Morgan, had been floating around Music Row for several years before the country singer recorded it. As Diamond tells The Boot, they knew it was a hit -- and once Hill recorded it, she proved their instincts right: "Let Me Let Go" hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and earned a Top 10 spot on the Adult Contemporary chart (No. 10) and a Top 40 place on the Hot 100 (No. 33); it was also nominated for a Grammy, for best Female Country Vocal Performance, and used on the Message in a Bottle movie soundtrack.
