Lee Ann Womack Is Busy Working on Her Next Studio Album
Womack told the Flint Journal that we can expect to hear lots of traditional country music on this new album. The country star says, "Whether it be bluegrass or country or more blues oriented ... We play real instruments, we don't use tracks, you can expect real music." She adds, "Being in the studio is probably the favorite thing about my job."
The 'I Hope You Dance' singer says recording is a family affair, since her husband, Frank Liddell, is a popular Nashville producer who's worked with Miranda Lambert and Kellie Pickler as well as his wife. Their daughters, Anna Lise and Aubrie Lee, sing with mom as well and play instruments, too.
The 44-year-old Texas native's approach to her career is nothing but genuine, and she's even brought in Jamey Johnson to sing on a tune for this upcoming record. Womack admits that recording can be stressful, and she says she always makes the best music when she doesn't worry about things.
The country star has been in Nashville for 15 years now and has seen the business side of things shrink drastically the last few years. She says, "I’m hoping that helps the music. There are a lot of people who came here to make money. There are a few people here who came here to make music. Maybe the ones who are here to make money will keep leaving, and we’ll be left with musicians.”
The Grammy Award-winning artist has sold more than six million albums to date. Womack's last album, 'Call Me Crazy,' was released in 2008.
