In a double bill emphasizing both affecting vocal interpretation and potent songwriting ability, Lee Ann Womack and Patty Griffin will team up for a co-headlining tour next month. The joint concerts, titled “An Acoustic Evening With Patty Griffin & Lee Ann Womack” will spotlight sets from both performers as well as collaborations between the pair. For an idea of the women’s chemistry, watch this 2010 performance of Lefty Frizzell’s “Mom and Dad’s Waltz,” with guitarist Buddy Miller, below.
In May, Womack celebrated the 20th anniversary of the release of her self-titled debut LP, which garnered universal acclaim for its traditional-leaning approach to country music and began a string of hits, culminating in the inspirational 2000 crossover smash “I Hope You Dance.” Returning to the classic-country vibe of her earlier work, Womack won the CMA Album of the Year in 2005 for the extraordinary There’s More Where That Came From and most recently released the Grammy-nominated LP The Way I’m Livin’.
