Take Me as I Am is the debut album by country artist Faith Hill, released in 1993 (see 1993 in music) on Warner Bros. Records Nashville and has been certified 3× Multi-Platinum in the United States for sales of three million copies.
Four singles were released from the album. The first two — "Wild One" and "Piece of My Heart" — reached No. 1 on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in 1994. "Wild One," the tale of a rebellious teen-aged girl in conflict with her parents' more conservative ways, was the lead-off single, spending four weeks at No. 1 that January and giving Hill the longest-reigning chart-topping debut single for a female artist since 1964's "Once a Day" by Connie Smith.
"Piece of My Heart," a cover of the 1968 song by Big Brother and the Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin) was issued as the follow-up. The third single, "But I Will", failed to break the Top 30, but Hill's fourth release in late 1994 (the title track) reached No. 2.
