Raised in Kentucky and based in Nashville, Tommy Womack is a songwriter, author, and Podcaster. He is currently touring in support of his fifth CD – There, I Said It! - which is enjoying national airplay on Satellite, College and Americana radio stations and receiving praise from promoters, press, DJs and new fans. A two-time WINNER of "BEST SONG" in the Nashville Scene's annual "Best of Nashville" poll, Tommy won this year (2007) with "Nice Day" from the new album; and earned the top award in 2002 with "The Replacements" from his "Circus Town" CD. "Think Spalding Gray if he’d grown up in Kentucky with a guitar and a vinyl copy of Black and Blue." - The Village Voice (NY) The former leader of Government Cheese & the bis-quits, Tommy continues to perform his music in the US & Europe and has shared the stage with Todd Snider, Will Kimbrough, Marshall Chapman and others. His songs have been recorded by Jason Ringenberg, Will Kimbrough, Pat Haney & others. Tommy became a published author in 1995 with the release of "Cheese Chronicles: The True Story of a Rock & Roll Band You Never Heard Of" - a laugh-out-loud autobiographical memoir that has grown into a cult classic with over 6,000 copies in circulation. In 2007, Tommy presented his second book - "the Lavender Boys & Elsie" - a fictional collection of letters documenting the Civil War's only all-gay Confederate regiment, grisly murders at home and a well-accessorized Christmas show. He has appeared at book festivals throughout the Southeast and often incorporates music in to his presentations. In addition, Tommy is a steady Podcaster with weekly posts of humorous cultural and political insights on various subjects that happen to bother him. Tommy's "There, I Said It!" Podcasts are featured on i-Tunes and have been picked up for further dissemination by several high-profile blog sites.
