Lee Ann Womack No Nervous Nellie
Lee Ann Womack is headed to Los Angeles for the 51st Grammy Awards Sunday but says her nerves are just fine.
"I used to get nervous," the singer admits. "I was always worried about having to give a speech if I won, because I'm not really good at talking in front of a crowd. Now that I've been to all the different shows I'm not as nervous as I used to be. It's just nice knowing a bunch of people had to check the box by your name. I always feel so grateful that enough people did that to get me on the ballot."
There could be another reason the Texas native isn't worried about the show on Sunday. She confesses that her favorite awards shows are the country ones. "To me, the CMAs, the ACMs, that's more exciting because that's the music I love; that's the business I love ... That's what I grew up watching on TV. That was the highlight of my year when I was a kid, watching those award shows.
Womack is nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her current single, 'Last Call.' The 51st Annual Grammy Awards will air Sunday on CBS. Only a portion of the more than 100 winners will actually get to accept their awards on camera during the three-hour show, which begins at 8 PM ET.
