Born: June 18, 1944 in Jasper, AL, United States. Stylistically, she drew comparisons to Skeeter Davis and Brenda Lee, integrating pop with country (and some gospel). Posey also sang with Bobby Goldsboro, Tommy Roe, and Joe Tex, and she sang back-up on Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman." Posey's million-selling signature hit from 1966, "Born a Woman," was covered by Nick Lowe.

Sandy Posey (born Sandra Lou Posey, June 18, 1944) is an American popular singer who enjoyed success in the 1960s with singles such as her 1966 recording of Martha Sharp's compositions "Born a Woman" and "Single Girl". She is often described as a country singer, although, like Skeeter Davis (to whom she has been frequently compared), her output has varied. Later in her career, the term "countrypolitan", associated with the "Nashville sound", was sometimes applied. Posey had four hit singles in the United States, three of which peaked at number 12 on the Hot 100.
