Lee Ann Womack Covers McCartney, Collaborates With Crowell

Lee Ann Womack is recording  a cover of Wings’ “Let ‘Em In,” written by Sir Paul McCartney, which will appear as the title track to a new country and roots collection benefiting The Women and Cancer Fund.

Womack is working with noted producer Phil Madeira for her part of the project, which also features contributions by Bruce Cockburn, Ollabelle, Teddy Thompson, Steve Earle and Allison Moorer, Buddy Miller, and Jim Lauderdale among others. A previous volume was released with McCartney’s blessing in 2011 and featured Phil Vassar, Sarah Darling, Steel Magnolia, SHeDaisy, and more.

“I’ve gone through long periods of time when I’ve sung ‘Let ‘Em In’ in my live shows, because I just think the song is so good,” said Womack. “I love what it says about bringing people together. So when Phil asked if I’d like to be a part of this, I was delighted!”

Womack also appears on a track called “Mama’s On A Roll” from the Rodney Crowell and Mary Karr collaboration Kin. Other guests on the project include Lucinda Williams, Norah Jones, Rosanne Cash, Vince Gill, and Kris Kristofferson.

Womack is currently finishing work on a follow-up to her 2008 album Call Me Crazy with ACM Producer of the Year and husband, Frank Liddell.
