Danni Leigh (born February 9, 1970 in Strasburg, Virginia, U.S.) is an American honky tonk-style country music singer. 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.[1]

She was signed with Audium Records[2] after changing labels several times [3] following Decca's closure and release by Sony's Monument label.[4] In addition to performing as a solo artist, she also plays with a number of small groups.[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.[3] 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]

She has also performed a number of small gigs in the Austin, Texas area,[8] where she moved in 2002.[9]
