CD Review – Lee Ann Womac: Some Things I Know

Lee Ann Womac – Some Things I Know

George Strait claims she’s one of his favorite female vocalist and invited her to be a part of his Music Festival. That exposure, playing before thousands of fans, plus having several top ten hits off her debut album on Decca Records, has boosted Lee Ann Womack to the top of the pecking order in country music. On her second album, “Some Things I Know,” she shows no signs of the sophmore slump. Guest like Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs and Sharon White-Skaggs help make this album a mixture of traditional and contemporary country. The first single, “A Little Past Little Rock,” hit the charts running and made it’s way into the top ten in just a few weeks. The new single, “I’ll Think Of A Reason Later (To Hate Her),” is a funny little tune that reveals the way female jealousy really works. With a voice that is both smooth and achingly country, Lee Ann sings each song as though she has lived the experience first hand. Listen to “Don’t Tell Me,” written by Buddy and Julie Miller, and you’ll see what I mean. In a crowd of Shania wanna-be’s, Lee Ann stands apart based simply on her originality. A talented singer songwriter, she possess all the strengths needed to maintain a long successful career in country music.
