“I get real depressed and tell everybody”

That’s my favorite line on Tommy Womack’s latest album “There I Said It“. I like this album a lot. Womack has been on my top three list of favorite living songwriters for several years now, and this is probably his best work to date. It’s a bit more electric than much of his prior work, which usually i don’t like but it works quite well on this album.

For those of you not familiar with Tommy, he was in the bands Government Cheese and the Bisquits and also worked with Jason Ringenberg on several albums. He’s had five (I think) solo releases; all very good. I’d ordered several of his other albums through his website and he was nice enough to send me an advance copy of There I Said It several months before it came out. I think it’s his best yet. He’s one of the very few non-bluegrass artists I listen to at this point in my musical life.

I think this is the only album review I’ve done on the blog to date.
