70. Lee Ann Womack, 'I Hope You Dance' (2000)

In the two decades Lee Ann Womack has been making music, she's never made a splash like the one she made with this 2000 song. It charted at Number One on both the country and adult contemporary charts, won "Song of the Year" at the CMAs, ACMs, ASCAP awards and took home a Grammy for "Best Country Song." Plus, between the years of 2000 and 2007, you couldn't throw a rock at a high school graduation without hitting it. But according to the song's co-writer Tia Sillers, it was actually less about how the children are our future and more about her rough divorce. Still inspirational, just more depressing.
