"Sing" is the title of a song written by Rodney Crowell and recorded by American country artist, Wynonna Judd. The song was the second single released from her 2009 studio album, Sing: Chapter 1. After failing to chart on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, the song was given several electronic dance remixes, and sent to dance radio where it peaked at #4 on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart in August 2009.

Background[edit]

Written by Rodney Crowell, "Sing" is the closing track and title track to Wynonna Judd's album, Sing: Chapter 1. Allmusic critic, Thom Jurek reviewed "Sing", giving it praise. Jurek stated, "This final track is a new pop country anthem; it underscores Judd's sheer individualism and style, and offers a complete illustration of her gifts as a singer."[1]
