Country pop singer Lee Ann Womac was born in Jacksonville, Texas in August of 1966. Her single “I Hope You Dance,” released in 2000 was a huge crossover music hit, reaching the Top 15 on the Billboard Hot 100, and Number One on the Country chart. The single also became her signature song. At Belmont University, Womac studied the commercial ways of the music business and interned at the A&R department of MCA Records. In 1995, she began performing her own music and began co-writing songs with popular songwriters like Bill Anderson and Ricky Skaggs. In 1996, she was signed on as a recording artist by Decca Nashville.
Throughout her career, Womac has released six studio albums, with more than twenty singles featured on them. Her first single, “Never Again, Again,” peaked in the Top 25 and was followed soon after by two Number Two hits, “The Fool” and “You’ve Got to Talk to Me.” In the 90s, she scored two more Top 5 hits: “A Little Past Little Rock” and “I’ll Think of a Reason Later.” “I Hope You Dance” became her first Number One hit in 2000, and it was followed by Number Four single “Ashes by Now.” Womac reached the Top 10 one more time in the 2000s with the single “I May Hate Myself in the Morning.”
