Hey country music friends…
It’s time for our “Video Picks of the Week!”
This week’s music video is Lee Ann Womack, “I Hope You Dance.” The song was the lead single from her 2000 album of the same title, and a number one, cross-over mega hit.
One word comes to mind for me with this song… masterpiece. It is one of my favorite songs of all-time and definitely makes my top five. The lyrics and message are amazing, Womack’s voice is beautiful as always, and the video is very sweet.
“I Hope You Dance” is just one of those times in music when everything aligns together and is perfect.

This week’s live performance video is Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson performing Reba’s signature song, Fancy, for CMT Crossroads in 2007. This duet is one of the best live performances I have ever seen. I love when Reba and Kelly sing together. Besides the fact that they are two of my favorites, their unique voices blend so well together and are second to none. Plus, they are both consummate performers with shining personalities. Their Crossroads episode is seriously one of the best ever done. If you have not seen it, check CMT or Palladia for a re-airing of it. Amazing is an understatement. You will not be disappointed.
This week’s cover song comes from unsigned artist, Hayley Stayner. I found Hayley browsing Youtube. She has a lot of country covers that you should check out on her channel. Here she is performing David Nail‘s “Let It Rain.” You can also purchase her EP on iTunes.
