When Lee Ann Womack opens her mouth to sing, there’s no denying her special talent. With a beautiful and distinct voice, we’ve heard many hits from Womack over the years. Currently, the country music star is on her 8th studio album, which brought her three award nominations.
Womack released the album, The Way I’m Livin’, in 2014 and spent the next year touring to support it. Now, she is once again bringing one of the singles from this album into the limelight. The track is a cover of Hayes Carll’s “Chances” and Womack’s rendition is a beautiful tribute to the original.
With the steel guitar singing in the background, Womack sings about her chances of finding love in a bar. For the video, Womack went with something authentic. In fact, her goal was to produce a video that showcased the Lone Star icehouses and dancehalls where her music was born.
The song landed Womack two nominations at the 2016 Grammy Awards, an accomplishment that the country star doesn’t take lightly. “When you take chances and follow your heart, you never know,” Womack says. “But for everything this song has given me and “The Way I’m Livin'”, it was important to honor that – and then when you do the right thing, and something like this happens? Well, what’s better?”
Womack has definitely come a long way in the near decade she has been a part of country music, and this beautiful video proves that she still has a very bright road in front of her.
