Worst Pre-Fame Jobs: No. 25

If you think today’s country stars haven’t paid their dues, you haven’t met these performers. The Boot counts down 25 musicians who gave their blood, sweat and tears — and the occasional body part — to some pretty bad jobs on their way to the top.

Faith Hill: T-Shirt Seller

Hill — then Faith Perry — spent four months in Nashville before landing her first gig: a one-week stint selling T-shirts at Reba McEntire‘s booth at the 1987 Fan Fair. Hill’s buddy Martina McBride paid her dues the same way. She was the lady behind the T-shirt table at Garth Brooks concerts in the early ’90s.
