Sandy Posey (born June 18, 1944[1]) is an American popular singer, who enjoyed success in the 1960s with singles such as her 1966 recording of Martha Sharpe's composition, "Single Girl." She is often described as a country singer, although, like Skeeter Davis (to whom she's been frequently compared) her output has varied. Later in her career, the term "countrypolitan," associated with the "Nashville sound", was sometimes applied.[2] Posey had three hit singles in the United States all of which peaked at number 12 in the sales charts.Posey had her first hit with "Born a Woman," which Moman produced in Nashville on March 15, 1966.[8] This reached number 12 in the US sales charts in September 1966. "Born a Woman" was regarded by some as a women's liberationist song ("You're born to be stepped on, lied to, cheated on"), although it was lampooned by others[9] and Helen Reddy, whose song, I Am Woman, became a feminist anthem in 1972, dismissed it much later as "dreadful" and its lyrics as "not exactly empowering".[10] Billboard referred contemporaneously to "this woeful ballad rocker", while praising Posey's "excellent vocal work".[11] Even so, Posey received two "Grammy" nominations for "Born a Woman" in the categories of vocal performance (female) and contemporary (R&R) solo vocal. "Born A Woman" was later covered by Nick Lowe (Bowi EP) and Hubble Bubble.
