The single was officially released on June 23, via her new record label, Sugar Hill Records. It is also the title track of her forthcoming studio album, which will be out on September 23. This will be her first studio album in six years as Digital Journal previously reported.
"The Way I'm Livin'" has a traditional country vibe to it that it reminiscent of the songs from her There's More Where That Came From album. It is an acoustic vocal, where her vocals are piercing and haunting, while simultaneously honey-rich. Womack's talent is a rare combination for sure.
The song's lyrics are conversational and they paint a vivid picture. "Oh mama the way that I'm livin', If I ever get to heaven it's a doggone shame," Womack sings.
A Texas native, Womack premiered the song on Wall Street Journal's website, and it may be heard by clicking here.
