Lee Ann Womack’s Start of Career

Lee Ann Womack is a one-time Grammy winner and has won other awards from the country music association. Her passion for music started really young when she learned to play the piano. Her parents are both educators, so this was their influence on her. She continued her love for music, enrolling at South Plains Junior College in Levelland, Texas, which is one of the first schools to offer country music degree.

She then quit her school to pursue a real career in music. She started playing on mini-concert shows, where a huge recording company discovered her. This prompted her career to blow as she did collaborations with country legends such as Ricky Skaggs and Bill Anderson. Her third album met the biggest success as it went on to the top of the country charts and even the Billboard Hot 100.
