Country music great Lee Ann Womack performs 2 Bay Area concerts


Lee Ann Womack is one of country music’s best artists. And that’s been true, really, for a couple of decades now.

Her very first album, a self-titled affair released in 1997, was a platinum-selling smash that produced four Top 40 hits — including the high-lonesome lament “Never Again, Again.”

A few years later, Womack delivered her greatest commercial triumph — 2000’s “I Hope You Dance” — which topped the country album charts on its way to triple-platinum sales. The title track was also a platinum-selling single, which nabbed several big awards and nominations.

Womack is out on the road in support of her ninth studio effort, 2017’s “The Lonely, the Lonesome & the Gone,” and performs Feb. 19 at the Bankhead Theater in Livermore and Feb. 22 at the Chapel in San Francisco.

Having seen Womack twice in recent years, we highly recommend that country fans check out one (or both) of these shows.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Feb. 19; $30-$60, lvpac.org; 9 p.m. Feb. 22; $28-$32, www.ticketfly.com.
