Womack’s parents were both teachers, though her father was also a part time disc jockey. He encouraged his child’s early interest in country music. After matriculating from Jacksonville High School in 1984, Womack started a course in Country Music at South Plains Junior College in Levelland, Texas. She left after a year to attend Belmont University in Nashville, studying Music Business, though once again, she left this institution before graduating. During her time as a student, she interned with MCA Records.

After leaving college and before beginning her singing career, Womack made ends meet by waitressing, and working in a day care centre. She then began writing songs for other artists under Sony/ATV Publishing. She signed her first recording contract in 1996 with Decca Records, later moving to MCA Nashville in 1999.

Womack’s first album, eponymously titled, was released in the May of 1997. She wrote many of the tracks that featured herself, though other artists, including Ricky Skaggs, and her first husband, Jason Sellers, contributed. In the same year, she won awards including “Best New Female Vocalist” at The Academy of Country Music, and “Favourite New Country Artist” at The American Music Awards, amongst others. She followed the album up in 1998 with “Some Things I Know”, which reached a peak “US Billboard Top Country Album” chart position of 20.

Her first major hit came with the 2000 track “I Hope You Dance”, also the name of the album on which the single appeared. Womack toned down her country roots during this period and embraced a more “pop” sound. The song charted on the “Billboard Hot 100” at number 14. She performed the song, which was inspired by her children, in June 2000 on “The Tonight Show”. She continued with this pop sound in the album “Something Worth Leaving Behind”, but failed to achieve the same success as with “I Hope You Dance”, experiencing her first flop.

In addition to her music career, Womack has also acted in television programmes, including “The District” in 2003, as the character Haylie Adams, and in “Noble Things” as Claire Wades. Her songs have appeared in the soundtracks of popular shows such as “American Horror Story” and “The Family that Preys”.

In her personal life, Womack married for the first time in 1990 to fellow musician, Jason Sellers, whilst she was still attending college. They had one child together in 1991, a daughter, and divorced six years later. Her second husband is music producer Frank Kiddell, with whom she has a second daughter, born in 1999.
