    DADDY (Will Kimbrough & Tommy Womack)

    Blues-Rock

    Will Kimbrough and Tommy Womack recorded Let’s Do This, their
    third Daddy album, in January of 2017 at Nashville’s beloved
    Blackbird Studio, then promptly back-burnered it behind other
    musical projects — not to mention their jobs as actual dads.
    But in September, Womack learned the cancer he’d previously
    fought had returned. Kimbrough knew his friend had already
    survived a harrowing 2015 car accident and a drug-induced dance
    with death in 2007, so he decided they really had to “do this.” A
    Facebook post brought pre-orders from fans worldwide, allowing
    the co-producers to enter Kimbrough Super Service studio to add
    touches such as Lisa Oliver Gray’s gorgeously soulful harmonies
    and, on the track “Half Drunk,” Danny Mitchell’s jazzy trumpet.
    Their labor has produced 11 fine musical offspring Kimbrough
    describes as “based in the tradition of Bob Dylan, the Rolling
    Stones and Muddy Waters: the holy trinity of our band’s rock ‘n’
    roll.” Their reverence for roots rock and sly wit is evidenced
    throughout, from Womack’s sarcastic shouter “Pissed Off At the World” and his mildly lamenting cowpunk reminiscence,
    “Friday Night At the Villager Tavern,” to the chunky, low-down groove of Kimbrough’s “Start All Over,” his hilarious,
    Chuck Berry-inspired “Cadillac Problems” and the winking metaphors of his old-timey/ragtime ditty, “Two Bird Blues.”
    Kimbrough’s prodigious lead guitar and mandolin playing weave through each, augmented by Womack’s “all-important
    rhythm guitar” and Daddy mates Paul Griffith on “left-footed drums and percussion,” Dave Jacques on “slippery bass”
    and John Deaderick on “genius keyboards.”
    After separately finding their way to Nashville, Alabama native Kimbrough and Kentucky-born Womack joined forces in
    the early ‘90s as the Bis-quits. They’ve since collaborated frequently on one another’s recordings and with pals such as
    Todd Snider (for whom Kimbrough produced East Nashville Skyline). Their first Daddy album, Daddy at the Women's
    Club, came in 2005, followed in 2007 by For a Second Time. Says Blurt magazine, “It all begins with a song —
    something forgotten long ago by the industry's Music Row — and Kimbrough and Womack are TWO OF THE BEST
    WORDSMITHS EVER snubbed by the biz.”
    Kimbrough, the Americana Music Association’s 2004 Instrumentalist of the Year, has focused on recording, producing
    and touring with artists including Jimmy Buffett, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, and another side project, Willie
    SugarCapps. Womack, a two-time Nashville Scene critics’ poll Best Song winner, has written two books: Cheese
    Chronicles: The True Story of a Rock & Roll Band You've Never Heard Of, about his Government Cheese days, and
    The Lavender Boys and Elsie. He also hosts a show on WXNA-FM and writes a column for East Nashvillian magazine.
