My favorite song on this CD is the title track.
"dreammagic"
It still has the country roots, but also sounds fresh at the same time, a rarity in country music today.
Maren Cuykendall
Recently I heard a beautiful song with very beautiful lyrics.

Lee Ann Womack is without a doubt in the top three most talented vocalists in Nashville (along with Reba McEntire and an undecided third). She proved this to me with her first album, reinstated herself with her sophomore Some Things I Know, and now should convince the world with her third release, I Hope You Dance. Lee Ann brings the listener into the song with ballads like "The Healing Kind," the title track, "Stronger Than I Am," (the best song on the album), "I Know Why The River Runs," and "Lonely Too." She makes you want to dance with the rollicking "I Feel Like I'm Forgetting Something," and once again closes off an album with a religious track, "Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good." Other songs with original background music like "Ashes By Now" are catch, as well as "After I Fall." Lee Ann's clear soprano voice cuts through the air on tracks like "I Hope You Dance" and "Why They Call It Falling." Overall, as strong or stronger than the stone country masterpieces "Lee Ann Womack" and "Some Things I Know," this CD might bring Lee Ann onto center stage...finally.

Lee Ann Womack's I HOPE YOU DANCE is exactly what country music has been needed the last few years. A innovative album, it is filled with creative musical expression, thoughtful uncliched lyrics (as country music lyrics usually are), and displays incredible song writing talent. The crowning achievement of the album is the title track. "I Hope You Dance" is for anyone needing a lift-me-up or inspiration to get back on track. It's a song for family, friends, and especially since it is that time of year, for graduating Seniors; its words of wisdom should be guidelines for any student stepping out into the world. It should be at the top of your list of songs to commemorate Graduation.

Lee Ann Womack has retained her musical integrity in a big way after lackluster sales of her second album, Some Things I Know. Like with her other albums, the songs on I Hope You Dance sound contemporary enough to please the new-country listener, yet she doesn't feel the need to make radio-friendly songs that are just a passing thrill with nothing to really stand out artistically or lyrically. This album expands Lee Ann's horizons even more than before, and ranges from the surprisingly rocky "Ashes By Now" to the bluegrassy "The Healing Kind" and "Lord I Hope This Day Is Good" to the honky tonk fun of "I Think I'm Forgetting Something" to the popish and amazing ballad "I Hope You Dance" and the beautiful traditional ballad "Lonely Too." Another good thing is that like Dolly, Lee Ann sounds unmistakeably country regardless of the style of song. This is one of the best modern country albums that you will find!

There are a lot of reasons to like this CD: The sound which is definitely country, but soft enough to appeal to non-country listeners; the forthright statements of some songs; the bright personality of the singer; the honest dealings with emotion; but most of all, there's a positive message, a basic joyful dealing with life. We're not deluged with self-pity, even when she's hurting. This is a woman exhibiting the capability to deal with life.
Of course, the title song, "I Hope You Dance", sets the positive tone for the album. Lee Ann hardly needs backup singers, but in this case, the Sons of the Desert do enhance the sound of the hit song and do well in complementing ("complimenting" might be as appropriate a word) her.
The other hit song, "Ashes By Now", reinforces the positivity of the entire set. This is no weepy woman here, folks.
Same goes for "Stronger Than I Am", again a frank and forthright statement, and a poignant picture of the situation, one which should make any good man think before he leaves a woman and child.
"Thinking With My Heart Again" is another emotionally effective song, one in which Lee Ann's voice comes out strong, carrying the song without as strong an accompaniment as in some cuts.
She definitely does justice with the Don Williams song, "Lord I Hope This Day Is Good", again with the theme of facing the day with hope and strength.
There are other strong and enjoyable songs, but those are the ones that especially draw me and that I think quite worthy of notice.
This is a natural for country fans, but I think pop fans, adult contemporary listeners, should give this a good listen also, because I do think you'll go for it.

Lee Ann Womack has created another masterpiece, this is one of the best country albums I've heard in a while. Lets start with the title track, which became a mega hit, a career song for Lee Ann. I Hope You Dance is a song that empowers listeners, enstowing faith into them. Its no wonder it became a hit with its positive, empowering message.
The album is a very eclectic mixture of songs, all which are excellent. There is some brutal honesty on this album in songs like The Healing Kind, I Hope You Dance, Stronger Than I Am, I Know Why The River Runs, etc. This is true country music, she hasnt abandoned her roots. She also has some fun on songs like Ashes By Now (the second single), Does My Ring Burn Your Finger, and others. This is a well crafted album and well worth the wait. So give it a try, it has the power to make you think about your life in a positive light.
