Lee Ann Womack goes for "Last Call" to radio late June
Thursday, June 19, 2008
– Lee Ann Womack will officially release her new single, "Last Call," to radio June 30 with an album due out this fall. The song, written by Erin Enderlin and Shane McAnally, is from her seventh album, produced by Tony Brown and titled "Call Me Crazy."
"I'm so fired up to be back doing what I feel like I was born to do,
which is making country music," said Womack. "The time I spent writing,
looking for songs, and meeting with Tony felt so effortless and
natural. One of my favorite things when making a record is working
with some of the best singers and musicians in the world...it was so fun
to have some of them work on this project."
Four of the 12 tracks were co-written by Womack. She also received vocal help from Keith Urban and George Strait. Last time Womack
and Strait collaborated was for "Good News, Bad News", which earned them
a Country Music Association award for "Musical Event of the Year."
Womack has sold more than 6 million albums and won two Grammys. Her last CD, the very traditional "There's More Where That Came From," came out in February 2005.

Six years later, Lee Ann Womack is finally back. Her traditional country sounds were not quite working with Nashville, which was veering increasingly pop. Now, the Texas native returns with a new label, but the same lovely voice. Originally intended for her old label, MCA Nashville, Womack was given the marching orders to make the type of disc she wanted to listen to.
That resulted in songs from the likes of Neil Young, several from Bruce Robison, Adam Wright and Natalie Hemby, several of whom ...
The title track of Lee Ann Womack's first CD since 2005's traditional masterpiece "There's More Where That Came From" should have been the name of that CD because "There's More" was a real risk taker. Womack did wonders with the material there. While not quite the same left field beauty, Womack puts out another excellent batch of music three years later.
The songs work best when Womack opts for the traditional approach. Womack is on the top of her game on ...
