Lee Ann Womack Brings “The Way I’m Livin’” To “The View”

Lee Ann Womack

Lee Ann Womack has been racking up critical acclaim and Year End ‘Top 10s’ – including Esquire’s prestigious all-genre Ten Best of 2014 – on her way to a Grammy nomination for Best Country Album. To celebrate, the Tyler, Texan will perform on “The View” on January 19.

“It’s gonna be a little weird singing about ‘lyin’ and a sinnin’ and I just can’t change…’ at that hour,” says the Grammy award winner. “But I think all smart women know that life gets rough and can spin out of control before you know…And it does kind of turn me on to take that real aggressive acoustic music to morning television.”

Womack also wowed folks with her kind of country this past weekend. As a last minute addition to “The Life and Songs of Emmylou Harris” at Washington’s DAR Constitution Hall, she not only scorched Paul Kennerley’s surging “Born To Run” from Rose of Cimarron, but dueted with Steve Earle on Townes Van Zandt’s “Pancho & Lefty” from Luxury Liner.

“There have been some really interesting things,” Womack said. “Looking at a band with Sam Bush, Don Was, Sara Watkins and Buddy Miller, seeing Emmylou or Vince Gill watching, then looking over at Steve Earle who I’m dueting with? That’s what every artist who loves songs, players and artists dreams of.  “And to get to sing a song as straight-up as ‘The Way I’m Livin’’ on ‘The View’? Well, those are some brave women! That makes’em my kind of people!”

Womack has been some interesting places this year. In addition to the Emmylou Harris Concert, featuring Alison Krauss, Patty Griffin, Trampled by Turtles, Iron & Wine and Conor Oberst, she performed at Maya Angelou’s Celebration of Joy Rising memorial, PBS’ “Rock My Soul” a salute to gospel quartets with the Fairfield Four, the McCrary Sisters, Amos Lee and Lucinda Williams, CMT’s “Crossroads” with John Legend, co-hosted the International Bluegrass Music Association’s 25th Annual Awards with Jerry Douglas and sang on Dr. Ralph Stanley’s upcoming project.

“The View” will air Monday, January 19, on ABC. Check listings for local airtime.

Lee Ann Womack to Perform Anthem on Thanksgiving Day Football

Lee Ann Womack

Lee Ann Womack will perform the National Anthem during the Dallas Cowboys/Philadelphia Eagles game in Arlington, TX on Thanksgiving day with a very special guest. The legendary Paul Franklin will accompany on guitar.

“Paul brings so much heart to the songs he plays on,” says Womack. “When I was asked, I didn’t just want to go and sing, I wanted to really invest this performance of our national anthem with something that makes us all reconsider what the song is expressing. If you’ve ever heard Paul’s musicianship and the emotions he brings out, I think having him play opens up so many aspects of what Francis Scott Key was celebrating when he wrote that.”

Tune in Nov. 27th at 3:30pm ET on FOX-TV.
