Danni Leigh (born February 9, 1970 in Strasburg, Virginia, U.S.) is an American country music singer.[1] At age 19, she relocated to Orlando, Florida, intending to audition as a singer at Disney World but ended up moving to Nashville in 1994.[2]

She was signed with Audium Records,[3] after changing labels several times,[4] following Decca's closure and release by Sony's Monument label.[5] Although she has limited success in the US, she's had more success in Europe due to the varied methods in which consumers learn about new music.[4] Over time she has also developed a following in Korea, Brazil and Japan.[6] In 1999, she was nominated for the Rising Star Trophy, a British Country Music Award.[7] In 2001 she released A Shot of Whiskey and a Prayer.[8]

She has also performed a number of small gigs in the Austin, Texas area,[9] where she moved in 2002.[10]
