The Top 10 Songs For Graduation Celebrations! As you all know, the CMNB team loves summertime (we’ve been writing and dreaming about all of our adventures for months now!). And although there is an exact calendar date for the start of the season, there are many unofficial starts to it as well! For students, the one and most holy of those is the end of a school year! For seniors, whether it is high school or college, that last day of school (and passing grades) means graduation! In honor of this (and my recent obsession with Top 10s) I have come up with another list! So everybody get the tissues ready, as you (or your family member) embark on another life journey! Congratulations to all graduates (especially the ones from Sallisaw!). Good luck on all of your future plans!!! Top 10 Graduation Songs 1. I Hope You Dance – Lee Ann Womack 2. My Wish – Rascal Flatts 3. Here’s To You – Eli Young Band (fit this into my high school graduation speech) 4. I’m Not Gonna Cry – Corey Smith 5. Don’t Blink – Kenny Chesney 6. Don’t Forget To Remember Me – Carrie Underwood 7. Laughed Until We Cried – Jason Aldean 8. The River – Garth Brooks 9. You’re Gonna Miss This – Trace Adkins 10. I’ve Got Friends In Low Places – Garth Brooks (If you were part of my graduating class) As a BONUS…Graduation – Vitamin C. It isn’t country, but it is one of the most common songs used at graduations and I just couldn’t find it in me to leave it off the list.
Lee Ann Womak Reveals New Music to Fans! Rumor has it that Lee Ann Womak is getting ready to release some new music! She has been working in the studio with her husband, Frank Liddel, who is also her producer (convenient, right?). “It’s funny. Frank and I just never seemed to really get around to working together, beyond those few tracks on I Hope You Dance. We both love music so much in so many ways, we really challenged each other in the best way!” – Lee Ann Womak Womak hasn’t really let that many details slip about the new work, but she’ll be giving her fans an earful pretty soon! She has made plans to showcase some of the new tunes on May 26th with the Lee Ann Womack’s Country Music Appreciation Society & Social Club during a rehearsal for an upcoming show at Biloxi’s IP Resort & Casino.

Lee Ann Womack is giving away 5 copies of her newly released album “Call Me Crazy” to our awesome CMNB readers! Lee Ann Womack is climbing the charts with her new hit single “Last Call” off her October release “Call Me Crazy”, and fans are going crazy over the album. The album has already achieved industry accolades such as a Grammy nomination for Best Female Country Performance for “Last Call”, ACM nomination for Top Female Vocalist, and AOL’s Country Record of the Year for 2008. And of course, Lee Ann is taking the success in stride. “I’m so fired up to be back doing what I feel like I was born to do, which is making country music,” said Womack. “The time I spent writing, looking for songs, and meeting with Tony felt so effortless and natural.” Four of the twelve tracks are co-written by Womack and fans will discover two other very well-known male voices accompanying the songstress, including Keith Urban and George Strait. Last time Womack and Strait collaborated was for “Good News, Bad News”, which earned them a Country Music Association award for “Musical Event of the Year.” Lee Ann’s humble nature shows through when she credits the joy of this album to the process of making it: “One of my favorite things when making a record is working with some of the best singers and musicians in the world…it was so fun to have some of them work on this project.” Pay a visit to Lee Ann Womack’s official website at http://www.leeannwomack.com/ to view her video for “Last Call” and to learn more about upcoming appearances, projects and her latest news.
