In a world of faster, harder, louder, Lee Ann Womack wants something far more radical: to be real. Strip it all away, get to the core of life, love and raw emotion - and you find songs that distill it all to the stopping power of a hollow point bullet. For Womanck, who’s sung at the Concert for the Nobel Peace Prize, performed for multiple Presidents, done award-winning duets with Willie Nelson and George Strait as well as tastemaker prokects for Buddy Miller, Oscar-winner Randall Poster and Rodney Crowell, music is the ultimate form of connection and communication. Raised on claic country records by Ray Price, Nelson and George Jones, she recognizes the power of visceral truth in a song. “To see how far a song can take a feeling:” Womanck says, “is one of the most thrilling things I can do as a singer. In my career, I’ve been blessed to do many great songs, work with incredible musicians- and deep inside, I always ask how far could I go? When Frank and I started, that’s what we wanted to find out… to seek.” Quietly, over two three-day stints in a nondescript studio, they did. Using garbage cans for percussion, Aubrey Haney's shining fiddle and the sort of reverence players bring in the presence of greatness, The Way I'm Livin' was born. Unlikely songs in today's two-dimensional world of tailgates, cold beers, hot clubs and hooking up, The Way I'm Livin' proves to be more real; written for the jagged shards of life's rugged spots, turned over with some of the best melodies you'll hear. Not fancy, big or glossy, but man, these songs will take your breath away.
