Personalities | Lee Ann Womack | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, b. 1966)

From a traditional/bluegrass background, Womack’s self-titled debut album, rich in traditional sounds, was released in 1997, and included such hit singles as ‘The Fool’. I Hope You Dance (2000) sold over three million copies and brought her CMA’s 2001 Female Vocalist Of The Year Award, and more awards followed. After a change in her style, There’s More Where This Came From, the 2005 CMA Album Of The Year, was a refreshing return to traditional values.
