SPONSORED -- “The most important ingredient, though, is Womack and her soaring, passionate vocals, reminiscent of legendary country singers such as Loretta Lynn and, yes, even Patsy Cline.” -USA Weekend LEE ANN WOMACK’s latest album The Way I’m Livin’, released in September 2014, is a collection of powerful songs with a stripped-down, throwback sound. Produced by Frank Liddell and recorded almost completely live, the rootsier effort features songs by some of America’s most progressive songwriters/artists, including Bruce Robison, Hayes Carll, Mindy Smith and Neil Young. Reclaiming her spot as one of country music’s most expressive and distinctive vocalists, The Way I’m Livin’ earned Womack a 2015 Grammy Nomination for Best Country Album. LEE ANN WOMACK is also known for "I Hope You Dance,” “Last Call,” “I’ll Think of a Reason Later” and “Mendocino County Line (featuring Willie Nelson).” After spending several years as a professional songwriter, LEE ANN WOMACK’s eponymous album was released in May of 1997, and shortly after its release, it reached the Top Ten on the country chart. I Hope You Dance followed in mid-2000. Something Worth Leaving Behind appeared in mid-2002, and it was a sure fit for Womack to move into the country mainstream for good. She also earned two Grammy nods: one for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for Something Worth Leaving Behind and Best Vocal Collaboration (Country) for her duet with Willie Nelson on "Mendocino County Line." In 2005, Womack’s album There’s More Where That Came From was designated the Country Music Association’s Album of the Year.
