“I wanted songs that talked about how life really is, the raw spots, the tough places, the meltdowns and messy parts,” Womack said in a press release. “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!”

Excited to get new music out to her fans, Womack said her goal is to release heartfelt songs that country fans will live with.

“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,” she said. “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.”

Womack’s last album, Call Me Crazy, came out all the way back in 2008, warranting one top 20 country single in “Last Call.”
