It’s been a long wait for new music from Lee Ann Womack. She’s been busy out on the road the last few years. She’s been out there, but as far as new music, fans really haven’t been able to hear much.
But sometimes we just have to be patient and let the artist work things out with the business side. Lee Ann is with a new label now; the great Sugar Hill Records. And her new single sounds great. Here it is.
The Way I’m Livin’ – Lee Ann Womack
What an amazing voice.
Lee Ann is country all the way down to the core. She’s also got all the class in the world, but on this one you hear that edge. There is a little darkness in the story of this song and I like it. You won’t really hear anything like this on radio right now.
But we have heard songs like this on occasion in country music. And they usually do pretty well. There are plenty of fans out there that like something a little darker now and then. I guess some of us can just relate to those stories. And it’s good to know that we’re not alone in the way we’re living.
It’s wonderful to have Lee Ann back. I’m hopeful this song will do well on the radio, but I’m not sure how it will be received there. It’s pretty different from the Friday nights and KC lights that’s being played these days. But here’s hoping.
And I know the album will be wonderful. Can’t wait.
