A flat-out great singer, Lee Ann Womack made her first album in 1997 — and three years later experienced a career-making crossover hit. "I Hope You Dance," which won a Grammy for Best Country Song, still gets played at huge moments like weddings and christenings.

Now, 15 years after that hit, Womack is working on a smaller scale; last year, she released an extremely well-reviewed album, The Way I'm Livin', on an independent label. On this episode of World Cafe, she talks about singing songs she loves, playing smaller venues and being happy.
