Lee Ann Womack
Born and raised in Texas, Lee Ann Womack grew up with country music. While in the music business program at Belmont University in Nashville, Womack married songwriter Jason Sellers. After Lee Ann had her first child in 1991, she stayed home and concentrated on her songwriting. She signed with Tree Hill publishing in 1995 and to Decca as a recording artist a year later. Womack's first single only got a lukewarm response, but subsequent singles rose to No. 2 in the charts. While her career got on track, her marriage derailed, ending in 1996. In 1999, Womack gave birth to her second daughter and married producer Frank Liddel. The following year, Womack released her third album, I Hope You Dance, her biggest hit. The title track spent five weeks atop the country charts, crossing over to the pop and adult contemporary charts. Trying to recapture the crossover momentum,Womack released the glossy Something Worth Leaving Behind in 2002. It took three years to produce There's More Where That Came From, a return to her traditional roots. The album won CMA's Album of the Year, and "I May Hate Myself in the Morning" won single of the year. In 2008, Womack released album seven, Call Me Crazy.

Joy to the World: Live at Soundstage
Runtime: 53 minWorking with producers Dann Huff and Byron Gallimore, engineer Allen Sides and Grammy-winning arranger David Campbell, Faith Hill has crafted a one-of-a-kind Christmas record with Joy to the World, freshly conceived yet anchored in tradition. It is a loving tribute to both the spirit and the music of Christmas, one that pays homage to the classics.
Recorded over a two-year period, the album features reworked classics along with the only original song on the track and her single, "A Baby Changes Everything." The arrangements are diverse. From the big band orchestration of songs like "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, "Winter Wonderland" and "Holly Jolly Christmas," to the a cappella "The Little Drummer Boy" and the Appalachian feel of "Away In A Manger." The CD opens with "Joy To The World," and, says Hill, "From the very first note you hear, I wanted it to be joyous. I wanted to give you (the listener) the impression of what the song meant before a word was ever uttered."
Over the course of the past two years Faith has spent much of her time on the road. 2006’s Soul2Soul II Tour and Soul2Soul Tour 2007, which she did with
her husband Tim McGraw, was and still is the highest grossing country tour of all
time. It was selected as Pollstar Magazine’s "Major Tour of 2006" over industry powerhouses Madonna and the Rolling Stones. With the wrap up of the tour in 2007, they have the highest grossing multi-year North American tour in country music history.
That tour became one of the many highlights of a career that includes five Grammy Awards and countless other awards, the sale of more than 30 million albums, and hit singles including "Wild One," "It Matters To Me," "This Kiss," "Breathe," "The Way You Love Me" "Cry" and "Mississippi Girl." And perhaps most impressive of all the accomplishments, Faith Hill is the only female artist to celebrate three consecutive album debuts atop both Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart and Country Chart. With a voice that is soulful and powerful, there is simply no question that Faith is one of the music industry’s top vocalists.
As one of this generation’s most credible and visible talents, Faith Hill has based her career on dedication, passion and commitment.
