Undiscovered: 5 Lee Ann Womack Songs We Know You'll Love

Lee Ann Womack released her first album in 1997, and released her most recent in 2017. With her long-standing career, it’s no wonder that she has become a household name in female country. Her unique, neo-traditional sound brings something refreshing to the industry. To celebrate this woman, and her 56th birthday, here are 5 songs by Womack that you may not know.

1. “End of the End of the World”

From Womack’s 9th album released in 2017, The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone, this song artfully describes the completeness that love can bring to someone’s life. It’s almost the end of the world for Womack when the man she loves is gone, but all is well once he returns. “Well, I take back all of those things that I said / About how I'd probably be better off dead / My reason for living is back in my bed.” “End of the End of the World” is peaceful and loving, perfect for listening to by the fire on a cool night.


Also from The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone, “Wicked” demonstrates that neotraditional country sound that Womack is best known for. It takes more inspiration from Texas country than from Nashville, which adds another layer to the genre. Its lyrics provide an investigation into morals. “Whatever I get, I guess I've earned / But I never heard anyone who didn't deserve it.” Womack shows that her skill goes beyond vocals and into lyricism.

3. “The Man Who Made My Mama Cry”
