ABOUT LEE ANN WOMACK:
Lee Ann Womack has sung for presidents, the Concert for the Nobel Prize and Maya Angelou’s Celebration of Joy Rising. More importantly, the Grammy-winner has built a career singing songs that slice life wide open with a soprano that is all purity and ache. A Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year, Womack also won the prestigious Album of the Year for There’s More Where That Came From, plus a pair of Singles of the Year.
The East Texan is a duet partner of choice for Jackson, Willie Nelson, John Prine, George Strait, and others. Her most recent album, 2014 Grammy Country Album of the Year nominee The Way I’m Livin’ – produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Pistol Annies) – is an unvarnished distillation of Womack’s clear-eyed take on the real world. Drawing on songs from Julie Miller, Bruce Robison, Hayes Carll, Mindy Smith and Neil Young, USA Today called it “irresistibly teasing” with The New York Times adding “[Womack] is entrancing.”
