Lee Ann Womack Holds Court With King George + Queen Reba
Lee Ann Womack is thrilled to be on the road with George Strait and Reba McEntire, not only because she has the utmost respect for the two country superstars, but also because they truly enjoy each other's company.
"We've all known each other for a long time, and we all have very similar tastes," Lee Ann tells the Arizona Daily Star. "You get the three of us in a room together ... we're going to have quite a bit of camaraderie. Also our bands all know each other. One of the guys that used to play guitar for me now plays for George. A couple of the guys in Reba's band I've worked with many times."
Lee Ann paired up with Reba on the tour's opening weekend for Reba's 1993 hit, 'Does He Love You,' which the redhead had originally recorded with Linda Davis. Lee Ann has also teamed up with King George in the studio on a few different songs, most recently on 'Everything But Quits' from her current album, 'Call Me Crazy.' The trio's trek, which kicked off Jan. 22 in Maryland and continues through April 10 in Des Moines, Iowa, makes a stop in Phoenix, Ariz. tonight (Feb. 5).
Lee Ann's hot new single, 'There Is a God,' is scaling the country charts. It's the first release from her forthcoming album.
