Country music star Lee Ann Womack, who topped the charts in 2000 with her hit “I Hope You Dance”, will sing under the lights Aug. 4 at Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Amphitheater in Historic Downtown Fayetteville.
The box office will open at 6 p.m. for the Saturday event, gates will open at 7, the opening act will perform at 8, and Lee Ann Womack will take the stage at 9.
“We were pleased to add Lee Ann Womack to our Summer Concert Series lineup,” said Fayetteville Downtown Development Director Brian Wismer, who also manages the amphitheater. “Our early promotional posters had the August 4 concert listed as ‘TBA’. At that point, we couldn’t announce the artist’s name, because she was also appearing at another Atlanta-area venue in March.”
Texas-born Womack made it big on the Nashville scene, but she recently returned closer to her roots, recording her latest album “The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone” with her husband Frank Liddell in Houston at the historic SugarHill Recording Studios, which in times past also served as a music mill for the likes of George Jones, Freddy Fender and Willie Nelson.
