Lee Ann Womack never intended to go almost seven years between records, but she knew when she released new music, she wanted it to be very special. For the Grammy-winner who’s one of the rare women to win the prestigious Country Music Association’s Album of the Year, she wanted an album made purely for the sake of the songs and the spark of the musical performances.

That album – the eagerly anticipated The Way I’m Livin’ – arrives Sept. 23 on noted roots label Sugar Hill. Produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, David Nail), it features the songs of Chris Knight, Mindy Smith, Buddy Miller, Mando Saenz, Hayes Carll, Neil Young, Bruce Robison and one cagey cover lifted from Roger Miller.

“I wanted songs that talked about how life really is, the raw spots, the tough places, the meltdowns and messy parts,” laughs the always sunny Texan. “Hard, sad, rough… all the stuff people pretend doesn’t exist! Because once you embrace that, you can figure out what to do; or not do!”

“The Way I’m Livin’,” written by Grammy Country Song of the Year nominee Adam Wright (“So You Don’t Have To Love Me Any More”), is a scalding psychic meltdown of a lost soul, banging on the rocks and not sure they want any better. With a sweltering guitar and foreboding beat that turns dervish, Womack delivers her most blistering vocal since Buddy Miller’s “Does My Ring Burn Your Finger.”

The high impact title track debuts May 22 at WSJ.com, the Wall Street Journal’s online presence. Hailed by TIME for “the clarity of a soul that realizes loss is a form of purification, a scraping away of false ideals and excess emotional baggage,” this debut track takes Womack’s viscerality to a whole other level.

“It feels so good to be getting new music out to the fans,” says the woman who’s collaborated with Miller, Rodney Crowell, George Strait, Willie Nelson and Alan Jackson over the past several years. “I live to sing great songs that tear holes in life – just show living for what it is. I was fired up going into the studio, and Matt (Chamberlin), Duke (Levine), Glen (Worf, Jr), Mac (McAnally), Paul (Franklin) and all the amazing players who came by took me to an even higher place inside these songs.

“And knowing these songs were written to be performed, not pitched, sets a bar! Every songwriter wrote intending to sing’em, to tell these stories, show these postcards, and you can feel the way they built the characters! Bringing that to music was just so incredible for everyone on the sessions.”

The Way I’m Livin’ – or rather the first taste – arrives May 22 at WSJ.com, and on fine radio stations nationwide shortly thereafter. In-stores on September 23, 2014.

I love Lee Ann Womack's music - I have all her Cds, except the Christmas offering. Lee Ann is undeniably "The Voice Of country Music". I would love to hear her and Alan Jackson do a few ballad and upbeat duets together - I think they both have that pure Country essence all about their vocals. Lee Ann is the best!

This album is great!! I had a chance to see Lee Ann last night at Harrah's Metropolis (IL) and I will remember it always. Not alot of the flash & pyrotechs, just good honest country from a real Texas singer with a pure voice. Can't beat that!!!!

lee ann womack is alright of course she has had some of the best top songs in the world. i am kind of upset that she has to keep everything a secret. i mean you dont see her telling her whole life to cmt. of course i could understand why she needs it. i think that she needs to do some more concerts. she doesnt really do alot of those. i think that people would really love to come and watch her. Lee ann use to be on of the most successful female singer ever and then shania twain or reba came in the picture. i like lee ann and i think that she is a great singer but i also think that she should sing more songs.
