Womack is one of the few women in country music to win the coveted "Album of the Year" award by the Country Music Association and she wanted her new project to be made "purely for the sake of the songs and the spark of the musical performances," according to a press statement.
It will be released on roots label, Sugar Hill Records. Frank Liddell served as her producer, who has worked with such artists as David Nail and Miranda Lambert. It will feature the songs of Chris Knight, Mindy Smith, Buddy Miller, Mando Saenz, Hayes Carll, Neil Young, Bruce Robison and one cagey cover lifted from Roger Miller.
"I wanted songs that talked about how life really is, the raw spots, the tough places, the meltdowns and messy parts," Womack stated 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!"
The title track, "The Way I'm Livin'," was written by Grammy nominee Adam Wright.
"It feels so good to be getting new music out to the fans," Womack added in a press statement. "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. 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."
