Country-pop singer Ilse DeLange emerged as one of the most successful Dutch artists of her generation with her chart-topping 1998 debut album, World of Hurt. Born May 13, 1977, in Almelo, The Netherlands, DeLange spent much of her childhood competing in local talent contests. In 1998 she joined the country band Cash on Delivery, and with them traveled to Nashville to record an LP with producer Barry Beckett. The resulting World of Hurt was issued in The Netherlands as a DeLange solo effort, going on to sell close to 500,000 copies, topping the Dutch charts and establishing DeLange as major new international artist. ~ Jason Ankeny
