September 16, 2017 - Lee Ann Womack is justly lauded as one of the finest vocalists in country music. A Grammy winner and CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Womack has amassed a recorded catalog that is deep, rich, and rooted in the classic sounds at the heart of country and Americana music. She has joined voices with a diverse list of performers, from Dr. John to Dr. Ralph Stanley. Womack’s forthcoming album, The Lonely, the Lonesome, and the Gone, finds her coming into her own as a songwriter. The album was recorded at Houston’s legendary SugarHill Studios, where Lightnin’ Hopkins, George Jones, the 13th Floor Elevators, and many more made classic recordings. Peter Cooper talks with Womack about her songwriting, her East Texas roots, and her musical journey.
