I don't sing country music because I'm not capable
by Lee Ann Womack

of singing other kinds of music;
I sing it because I think it's the most beautiful kind of music there is.
- Lee Ann Womack

I hope you dance.

I love to see artists swing for the fences sometimes.
- Lee Ann Womack

 

I want to reach as many people as I can.
- Lee Ann Womack

Having that amount of nominations makes me a little nervous,
because you feel that the bar is really high,
the expectations are really high, but it also feels great.
- Lee Ann Womack

I can see me continuing to make the best music I can,
and let the chips fall where they may.

The satisfaction that I get from doing what I do is not what I thought.
I thought it would be that I'd feel like a star,
I'd feel important.
But I don't.
- Lee Ann Womack

But I'm also a music lover, and I'll always try a lot of different things.
- Lee Ann Womack

I think you can have moderate success by copying something else,

I'm the most low-maintenance person on the road.
- Lee Ann Womack

When you really are country, and you don't just wear
it like a piece of clothing or something,
you really can't get away from it.
It just is who you are.
- Lee Ann Womack

With this album, I tried not to think too much.
If I heard a song that I loved, I promised myself I wouldn't over-think it.
If I loved it and if I wanted to cut it,
I would.
- Lee Ann Womack

Nominations come and go.
It is not going to happen to you every year,
and I am very well aware of that.

And I also have a camera, a Web cam,
and I have one at home,
so I can hook up and talk to the girls,
and they can see me while we're on the bus in the middle of nowhere.
- Lee Ann Womack

Well, probably having to be away from home.
When I come back I kind of feel like there's a routine
going on that I'm not a part of,
so that can be difficult.
- Lee Ann Womack

And to me, I had come out of Texas, and during that
time was when I realized that a lot of people in Nashville,
their idea of what country music was was not the same as mine.

I've learned the lesson that when you're in the middle
of something that seems overwhelming,
or you're in a bad situation and it seems like it's
the end of the world or whatever,
then you learn that it's not.
- Lee Ann Womack

But I just love that music scene so much,
and I enjoy really being around those artists and watching
them even more than I do performing,
because they are a whole group of people that do it because they love music.
- Lee Ann Womack

I think a lot of it had to do with, you know,
I was always a daddy's girl.
I was always wanting to please him, and I think he
was pleased when he'd walk past my room and I was listening to those records.
- Lee Ann Womack

So you do shorter versions of the hits,
or you take out a long guitar solo or things like that
to make time for the hits and new music as well.
But I don't think any of us ever get to do as much
new music as we would like to.
- Lee Ann Womack

And for the past 10 years I've been in a real commercial
setting where people are all about numbers,

So it's nice to step out of that and hang out with
a bunch of people who play music just because they love it,
as you can imagine.
- Lee Ann Womack

It is not as glamorous as I thought it would be,
but, you know, I appreciate it more than I ever knew I would,
and I love it more than I ever knew I would.

I think the hardest thing probably for me is going
one second from being mom to right out on the stage
and having to be that person too.
It's hard to switch gears.
- Lee Ann Womack

And it took me about 11 years to get a record deal,
and I just had to work around and come to terms with
the fact that what I was doing was going to be different,
and I just had to wait until somebody was ready to jump on the bandwagon.
- Lee Ann Womack

So it's more the musician in me that makes me stretch
out and try different things more than anything.
But, like a lot of guitar players, I have one certain
niche that's my thing that I'm better at than the others.
- Lee Ann Womack

I'm a businesswoman.
I am a music lover.
I like for people to like my music.
When you listen to top 40 radio, you hear pop stuff.
You hear rock stuff.
You hear all these different influences.
- Lee Ann Womack

A lot of times in this business, we are taking advantage
of hot times in our career to do a lot of TV and a
lot of radio and that sort of thing,
