Lee Ann Womack Performs Intimate Concert for Fans in LA

Lee Ann Woman

Last Friday, Sonos and ASCAP welcomed Grammy award-winning country artist Lee Ann Womack to Sonos Studio, an acoustically designed space in the heart of Los Angeles, as a part of a week of events in celebration of the 2015 Grammys. Lee Ann, 2015 Grammy nominee for best country music album, gave an intimate performance for fans and held a unique discussion on the art of songwriting.

Lee Ann performed tracks off her latest album, “The Way I’m Livin,’” sharing her writing process and the stories behind some of her award-winning songs. During the discussion, Lee Ann commented that many of her new songs are about the Devil, honky-tonk and the Church, stemming from her upbringing in Texas where you could… “feel the pull between Saturday night and Sunday morning.”

Sonos was honored to have Lee Ann Womack as the first country artist to perform at Sonos Studio.

When Lee Ann Womack heads to Los Angeles for the 57th Grammy Awards, she needs to bring extra clothing. Nominated for Best Country Album for The Way I’m Livin’, the East Texan songstress is now also slated to appear on “Conan” Wednesday, February 11 where she will sing the title track.

“I first played for Conan when I Hope You Dance was out, and he’s always been a man who takes the music so very seriously,” Womack says. “There are a few shows where you can really tell that the music matters, so getting to play for him and his audience fires me up. Not to mention, that’s the perfect hour for this kind of song.”

The dark horse was made as a testament to great songs, incredible musicianship and Womack’s pristine bar-room soprano. Culled from the songbooks of Chris Knight (“Send It On Down”), Julie Miller (“Don’t Listen To The Wind”), Hayes Carll (“Chances Are”), Mindy Smith (“All His Saints”) and Neil Young (“Out on the Weekend”), The Way I’m Livin’ was singled out as one of Esquire’s Top 10 Albums of 2014.

“There is nothing I love more than playing music,” Womack enthuses, “except for playing music for people who really love it. When you do these shows, getting in front of people who’re curious about the songs, who get the level of playing, that’s a treat. It’s why I’ve always loved doing ‘Conan,’ and am happy to be going back after the Grammys.”

An album made for the sake of the songs, the sheer joy of playing and all the subtle, conflicted emotions life can hold, The Way I’m Livin’ has opened a lot of doors for hard roots music. February 11th, Womack will give “Conan” a slice of what the fuss is all about.

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

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.
