Liddy Clark’s Spin on Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” Was Inspired by Her Cousin’s Cover at One of His Shows

Clark gets real on the reason why she wanted to cover the country classic.

Liddy Clark just dropped her own spin on LeAnn Womack‘s “I Hope You Dance” on Friday (June 22) and we can’t get enough of it!

The country songstress has been obsessed with the song ever since she first heard it as a little girl growing up in Parkland, Florida, and has a really interesting story as to why she actually wanted to cover it.

“My dad’s cousin [Drew Clark] used to be in Sons of the Desert in the 90s and actually sang background vocals for the original song,” Liddy told us during an interview at the 2018 CMA Music Festival in Nashville earlier this month. “So when we went to one of his shows out in Texas, we saw him perform it in a different kind of way. After hearing it, we decided to recut it and make our own version.”

“We recorded the song maybe two years ago and were just kind of waiting for the right time to release it. It has more of a singer/songwriter-y Jason Mraz kind of feel to it. and I really like the way it turned out,” she added.
