Lee Ann Womack
In a world of faster, harder, louder, Lee Ann Womack wants something far more radical: to be real. Strip it all away and get to the core of life, love and raw emotion, and you find songs that distill it all to the stopping power of a hollow-point bullet. For Womack, who’s performed for multiple presidents, teamed with Willie Nelson and George Strait on award-winning duets, and been a part of tastemaker projects for Buddy Miller, Oscar-winner Randall Poster and Rodney Crowell, music is the ultimate form of connection and communication. Raised on classic country records by Ray Price, Nelson and George Jones, she recognizes the power of visceral truth in a song.
