Lee Ann Womack Performs for NPR's Tiny Desk

Lee Ann Womack occupies rare terrain in country music. Though massively popular singles led to commercial success and widespread recognition, these days, she's working on the fringes of the genre. Her 2017 record, The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone, evokes the country music of Womack's Texas upbringing as the daughter of a country radio DJ, name-checking Hank Williams and covering George Jones.

At the Tiny Desk, the emotional storytelling and unparalleled vocal ability that anchor the album are all the more immediate. No bystander was impervious to the stormy and soaring "All The Trouble," and the affecting lyrics of "Mama Lost Her Smile" felt even more intimate and unguarded when performed just feet from the audience. "That's just good old country music story songs," she explained.
