Tracy Ann Wormworth (born December 15, 1958) is an American bass guitarist and musician. She is the sister of The Conan O'Brien Show drummer James Wormworth, daughter of jazz drummer Jimmy Wormworth and sister of vocalist Mary Wormworth.
Wormworth is a member of the B-52s, having recorded and toured with the band since at least the Cosmic Tour of 1990.

By 2008, she was listed as an official band member on their album Funplex and is featured in the 2011 video recording With the Wild Crowd! Live in Athens, GA.
Wormworth's career began as a member of the New Wave band the Waitresses. Dave Hofstra was the bass player on the Waitresses first album, Wasn't Tomorrow Wonderful? (though Wormworth appears in the back cover photo on the album). Wormworth joined the band after Hofstra's departure and remained until the dissolution of the band in 1984.
Wormworth has served as a touring bass player for Sting and Wayne Shorter, Cyndi Lauper, Phyllis Hyman, jazz violinist Regina Carter, vocalists Rachelle Ferrell and Joan Osborne, as well as the B-52s. She was part of the house band on The Rosie O'Donnell Show, where she performed with everyone from Little Richard to Liza Minnelli. She appears in videos with The B-52s and Sting. She also recorded on the Lena Horne album We'll Be Together Again (1994), I Ain't Movin' (1994) by singer-songwriter Des'ree, and Head over Heels (1995) by Paula Abdul as well as Regina Carter's Something for Grace. She has worked with The Family Stand, Rachel Z, and Moby.
