Traditional country songstress Lee Ann Womack recently told Nashville's Tennessean that her fans can anticipate a 2012 album from her. Though the 'I Hope You Dance' singer hasn't released a record since 2008's 'Call Me Crazy,' she says she has already cut half of her new record with producer husband Frank Liddell.

“Frank is really good about helping me keep who I am at the forefront, but also making it fresh,” she says. Liddell is best known for his producer credit on country queen Miranda Lambert's albums, as well as her femme trio the Pistol Annies.

A self-described "traditional country music freak," Womack assures fans that the upcoming album will see her sticking to her roots and singing about “real life and real issues," just as she has in the past. Womack's 2005 record, 'There's More Where That Came From,' claimed Album of the Year at the 39th annual CMA Awards.

Though she has yet to announce a release date for the record, Womack will be keeping busy with touring for the next month, making stops in Fort Worth and Houston, Texas; Montgomery, Ala. and Las Vegas.
