Available Now: Lee Ann Womack’s Career-Best Album ‘The Lonely, The Lonesome, & The Gone’

Lee Ann Womack recently released her new album and debut for ATO Records, ‘The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone,’ a stunning exploration of the music of East Texas that showcases Lee Ann Womack’s talent for timeless songwriting and cements her status as “one of American roots music’s foremost auteurs” (NPR Music). To mark the occasion, the New York Times has run a career-spanning profile of Lee Ann’s work, in which they called Lee Ann “one of her generation’s most acclaimed vocalists,” saying the record embodies “the most delicate and desperate extremes of melancholy.” Read the full feature here: hyperurl.co/LeeAnnWomackNYT

To accompany the new album, Lee Ann has announced over 30 additional full-band headlining dates. She’ll be accompanied by some of Nashville’s best musicians, with Jonathan Trebing (guitar), Lex Price (bass), Dave Dunseath (drums), Justin Schipper (pedal steel) and Luke Bulla (fiddle) rounding out her touring band.

American Songwriter called ‘The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone’ “a late-breaking short list nominee for 2017’s album of the year,” while LA Times says the album is “one of the most personal albums of her impressive career.”

Produced by her husband Frank Liddell (2017 ACM Album of the Year winning producer for Miranda Lambert’s ‘The Weight of These Wings’) and largely recorded at the legendary SugarHill Studios in Houston, TX, ‘The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone’ features more Lee Ann Womack co-writes than all her previous albums combined, making it her most personal collection to date. The album mixes the country, soul, gospel and blues of her native East Texas, into an audacious, sharp-edged work of art.
