Progressive traditionalist Lee Ann Womack has sung for Presidents, the Concert for the Nobel Prize, and Maya Angelou’s Celebration of Rising Joy. More importantly, the Grammy-winner built a career seeking songs that slice life wide open to let the pain, the emptiness, the rage and the desire pour out. A Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year, she’s also won the prestigious Album of the Year for There’s More Where That Came From, plus a pair of Single of the Years for “I May Hate Myself in the Morning” and “I Hope You Dance.” I Hope You Dance sold over 6 million albums and the title track topped multiple charts around the globe. The East Texan is a duet partner of choice for Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson, Dr. John, Ralph Stanley, Buddy Miller, George Strait and Jim Lauderdale. She is a featured vocalist on Miller’s Silver Strings project, Rodney Crowell and Mary Karr’s Kin, and music supervisor Randall Poster’s critically acclaimed Divided & United. Womack’s soprano has a purity that rivals Dolly Parton and an ache that suggests Emmylou Harris at her most haunted. Womack was the MusicFest Artists’ Tribute to a Legend honoree in 2009 and has performed at the festival multiple times.
