Country Singer Visits Brazos Valley

She has won CMA awards for Album of the Year, and Female Vocalist of Year, to name a few.

Lee Ann Womack kicks off the first week of December with a whirlwind tour in her home state, including a stop at Hurricane Harry's in College Station.

"I'm having more fun than I've ever had. I've been doing this for ten years and this surpasses anything touring wise," said Womack.

A native of Jacksonville, Texas, Womack's passion for music began at a young age, sitting in her room and listening to records and dreaming about one day being on stage singing.

"You know it was great we lived in a really small town, so there wasn't a whole to to do, so it was a great seventeen years for me to learn to sing," said Womack.

And sing she did.

She spent a lot time at the station where her father was a disc jockey. Through that experience she gained insight into what she wanted to do with her future.

"I think just watching him on the microphone knowing that when he talked it went out to thousands upon thousands of people hearing him that affected me in someway," said Womack. "I thought I want to do that somehow, when I grow up."

All grown up now, Lee Ann Womack has sung with some of country's greatest voices, including Willie Nelson and George Strait.

Her passion for country music runs deep and there is one things she hopes people who listen to her music take away with them.

"I hope people think I do a good job at real country music, and carrying that forward, carrying it to younger people and doing it right," said Womack. "And so I just hope people say, when it came to country music she did it right."
