    Biography

    After spending several years as a professional songwriter, Lee Ann Womack became one of the breakout contemporary country stars of 1997 with her eponymous debut album.

    Born and raised in Jacksonville, TX, Womack became infatuated with music at an early age, which is appropriate for the daughter of a disc jockey. Her father often took her to work, where she picked out records to play on the air. Following high school graduation, she attended South Plains Junior College in Levelland, TX. The school was one of the first in the country to offer degrees in country and bluegrass music, and Womack soon became a member of the college's band, Country Caravan. She traveled throughout the South and California with Country Caravan and stayed with the group until she left South Plains to study music business at Belmont University in Nashville. That led to an internship in MCA's A & R department.

    By 1990, she had settled in Nashville, Womack met and married singer-songwriter Jason Sellers in 1990; they divorced in 1996. Together they had a daughter named Aubrie Lee Sellers (b. 1991). Womack gave birth to her second daughter, Annalise Liddell, in January 1999 after marrying record producer Frank Liddell.She continued to attend Belmont, as well as write songs. Soon, she began singing on songwriting demos and performing her own showcase concerts. Eventually, Womack was spotted by Tree Publishing at one of her showcases. In 1995, the company signed her after listening to one of her original demos. While she was a staff writer at Tree, she co-wrote songs with Ed Hill, Bill Anderson, Sam Hogin, and Mark Wright. Her songs were recorded by Anderson and Ricky Skaggs.

    Within a year after signing to Tree, Lee Ann Womack signed to Decca Records as a recording artist. Wright was hired as the producer for Womack's debut album, which was comprised of both original material and songs written by professional songwriters. Mark Chesnutt, Ricky Skaggs, Sharon White, and Tony Brown all appeared on the record, which created a buzz in the industry.

    Lee Ann Womack's eponymous album was released in May of 1997, and shortly after its release, it reached the Top Ten on the country chart. I Hope You Dance followed in mid-2000. Something Worth Leaving Behind appeared in mid-2002 and it was a sure fit for Womack to move into country mainstream for good. A Season for Romance was released before the year's end, but Womack was itching for the stage. In early 2003, Womack earned a small part on the CBS drama The District. She also earned two Grammy nods: one for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for Something Worth Leaving Behind and Best Vocal Collaboration (Country) for her duet with Willie Nelson on "Mendocino County Line."

    To date, Lee Ann Womack has won 6 CMA Awards (out of 17 nominations), 5 ACM Awards (out of 16 nominations) and a Grammy (out of 10 nominations).

    American country artist Lee Ann Womack has released eight studio albums, three compilation albums, one extended play, twenty six singles, seventeen music videos, and appeared on thirty eight albums. Womack's self-titled debut album was released in May 1997 on Decca Nashville Records. It peaked at the ninth position on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and the 106th position on the Billboard 200, certifying platinum from the Recording Industry Association of America. It featured the hit singles "Never Again, Again", "The Fool", and "You've Got to Talk to Me". Her gold-certifying second album Some Things I Know (1998) reached number twenty on the country albums chart, spawning the hits "A Little Past Little Rock" and "I'll Think of a Reason Later".

    Womack's third studio album I Hope You Dance (2000) topped the Top Country Albums chart, reached number sixteen on the Billboard 200, and certified triple platinum. The lead single brought her the biggest success of her career. It topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, crossed over to number fourteen on the Billboard Hot 100, and became a minor hit internationally. Her fourth studio record Something Worth Leaving Behind (2002) failed to match the commercial success of I Hope You Dance. A holiday album and greatest hits record appeared before the hit single, "I May Hate Myself in the Morning", and its accompanying There's More Where That Came From (2005). The album made the third position on the country chart and the twelfth position on the Billboard 200. Call Me Crazy (2008) debuted at number four on the Top Country Albums list and featured the top twenty hit "Last Call". Her eighth studio album The Way I'm Livin' (2014) reached peak positions on both the country albums and Independent Albums charts.
