Product Description

Lee Ann Womack ~ Some Things I Know

While much of the material on Womack's sophomore effort treads well within the unspoken boundaries of Nashville romance (broken hearts, unrequited love), there are a few gems that hint of a saucy character behind the sweet voice. "I'll Think of a Reason Later" is a funny, honest portrayal of a woman meeting an old lover's new flame. "The Man Who Made My Mama Cry" is an unflinching dismissal of a prodigal father, and "I'd Rather Have What We Had" mourns for the steamy affair that led to a now-mundane marriage. Supported by a pair of Vince Gill duets, Some Things I Know effectively balances country music convention with honest emotion. --Alexandra Russell

5.0 out of 5 stars Country At It's Finest November 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Lee Ann Womack has without a doubt the best female vocals in country music, or any other genre if you want to be completely honest. Out of her three releases thus far, "Some Things I Know" is my favorite. The songs on the CD are pure country, pure heart, and pure emotion. Although every single deserves recognition, I'll just mention the best. They include:
"A Little Past Little Rock": This song still sends chills down my spine when I hear it. Lee Ann scored a winner when she cut this single. In my opinion, it's even better than "I Hope You Dance". I can't imagine anyone else delivering it like Lee Ann. It's fantastic!
"I'd Rather Have What We Had": Lee Ann is joined by the highly talented, yet often-overlooked Joe Diffie on this cut. It's a sad tune about a couple realizing that they aren't living in a happily-ever-after and that the real world is not as pretty as they had originally thought.
"I'll Think Of A Reason Later": Okay, this is one FUNNY song! I have TOTALLY been here! Who hasn't hated your ex's new love? And with lyrics like "Black out her tooth with a marker. Childish yes, but she made such a thin little target", you just can't miss.
And finally, my favorite track on the CD (with the exception of "A Little Past..") is "I Keep Forgetting". Enlisting the legendary and down-right dreamy vocals of Vince Gill, Lee Ann sings about a woman who broke up with someone, but still remains in love with him and keeps reminding herself that she was the one who let him go. This song makes me cry everytime I hear it and is up there on my list of all-time favorite country tunes.
I would suggest "Some Things I Know" to any country fan, traditional or contemporary.

5.0 out of 5 stars A High Quality, Classic Country Album February 26, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
With a number of female country artists slipping in their recent releases, this album is truly country and quite good. Ms. Womack has a good voice and puts a lot of energy and emotion in her work. There are a lot of good songs on this album rather than the current trend of having a couple of hit songs and the rest being dogs. There is something about this album which will put you in a good mood. BUY IT!

AFTER HEARING Lee Ann's self titled 1997 debut, I was absolutely hooked on the little lady from Jacksonville, Texas. The incredible clarity of her beautiful voice cuts through the air on track after track of "Some Things I Know."
The record begins with one my personal favorite tracks, "Some Things I Know," with Vince Gill's harmonics making it even stronger. The touching ballad is a remake of the original version of the song by James Bonamy, which is easily overshined by Lee Ann's amazing soprano. The first single, biggest hit, and only video from the album, "A Little Past Little Rock" comes next, a love gone wrong ballad with ex hubby Jason Sellers on backup, absolutely worth listening to because of Lee Ann's delivery. The catchy "(Now You See Me) Now You Don't" comes next. A great song. That's followed by the heartbreaking song "I'd Rather Have What He Had," with great backup from Joe Diffie. It's also a cover of an old Conway and Loretta tune.
The next song should bring a tear to any human eye. A daughter talking to her father who was absent in childhood, "The Man Who Made My Mama Cry" is the kind of song we all wish we could write. I wish I could type it all, but to quote a bit of it; Lee Ann plainly states, "To me you're just the man who made my mama cry/Someone who broke a lot of promises in his time/All I know about you/Is how to live without you/I can see I have your eyes/But all you've ever been is the man who made my mama cry." The sixth track became one of Lee Ann's signatures; a song that barely made the record, the sassy "I'll Think Of A Reason Later" says what we all don't have the guts too (It was just one tooth!).

This is an outstanding album so it's difficult to pick out songs (nice problem, that). Three of the tracks (A little past Little Rock, Now you see me now you don't, I'll think of a reason later) made it on to Lee Ann's greatest hits compilation. They fairly represent this album although they aren't necessarily my favorite tracks such is the quality of the album.

The set opens with the title track, an aching ballad that sets the standard for what follows. Two other outstanding ballads (I'd rather have what we had, When the wheels are coming off) describe a couple that are still together, but whose love for each other seems to have faded. Another fine song (If you're ever down in Dallas) is about a woman who regrets giving up on a man. The final track (The preacher won't have to lie) reminds us that money isn't everything. Well, those are just a few of the great songs on this album.

Following her similarly styled eponymous debut album, it seemed that Lee Ann was going to be a standard-bearer for traditional country music in the new millennium. This was not to be, although Lee Ann eventually returned to traditional country in 2004.

If you enjoy hearing Lee Ann (or anybody else) sing traditional country, you'll surely love this album.
