Nashville, Tenn. (April 10, 2014) – Sugar Hill Records announces it has signed Grammy-winning Lee Ann Womack. The critically acclaimed vocalist’s eagerly anticipated new record is slated for a September release, with its first single coming this summer. The signing was announced yesterday on HollywoodReporter.com.

When I was looking for the right home for this record,Womack says, “I knew I wanted a label where passion for music and artistic integrity drive the decision-making, the people who bring the music to the fans. Beyond the incredible work Sugar Hill has done with Nickel Creek, Sarah Jarosz and Bryan Sutton, they have a broader way of looking at where music can go and why it matters – and for this very personal record, it seemed like the perfect fit.”

Award-winning producer Frank Liddell – known for his work with Chris Knight, Pistol Annies, David Nail -- helmed Womack’s forthcoming release. Beyond winning the Country Music Association’s Album of the Year award in 2010 for Miranda Lambert’s Revolution, his work earned Lambert the Academy of Country Music Award’s Album of the Year  for three consecutive recordings: Revolution, Crazy Ex Girlfriend and Four The Record.

“Lee Ann and I always thought one day we’d work together,” Liddell says of their collaboration, “but we wanted it to be right, be something we could both bring the best of ourselves, too. My wife is one of the greatest country singers ever, but she’s also a vocalist who brings things out of songs you never realized were there. It’s unusual for the musicians to not just want, but to shape their performances to the vocalist during tracking, but for this project... That’s just what some of the best players in the world did.”

Cliff O’Sullivan, Sugar Hill’s General Manager and Senior Vice President, states, “We’re thrilled to have Lee Ann join Sugar Hill and the Welk Music Group. She has delivered a stunning album, and we can’t wait for people to hear it. Lee Ann turns an important artistic corner with this project -- and we’re delighted to be a part of her next chapter. Where Lee Ann wants to go musically matches up perfectly with our goals as a label."
