Our guest today is a flat out great singer. Her name is Lee Ann Womack and she made her first album in Nashville in 1997. Three years later she had one of those pop-crossover hits that people hang careers on. "I Hope You Dance" is a song that still gets played at weddings, christening, all kinds of big life moments. It also won a Grammy as Best Country Song. Now it is 2015, a long 15 years in Nashville time from that success. The country music industry is dominated by male artists, bro-country if you will, and Lee Ann Womack is looking for her place. Last year she released an extremely well reviewed album, The Way I'm Livin' on Sugarhill Records. She talks about singing songs she loves, downsizing from stadiums to smaller venues where the music matters, and being happy.
