Singer-songwriter, author, humorist and Kentucky native Tommy Womack got his start in 1985 to 1992 with legendary Bowling Green-based, post-punk and college radio faves, "Government Cheese" (who's story is immortalized in Tommy's cult classic book Cheese Chronicles). Upon moving to Nashville in 1992, Tommy has become known for his long working relationship with Will Kimbrough, starting with their bands "Bis-quits" (who made one classic album for John Prine's Oh Boy label in 1993), and "Daddy", who made two albums and enjoy a cult following.

Since 1998, Tommy has released seven solo albums, the latest being Namaste in June 2016, and he looks forward to performing songs from that record in addition to such proven past show-stoppers as "Nice Day", "Vicky Smith Blues" and "Alpha Male & the Canine Mystery Blood."

In addition to Cheese Chronicles, Tommy is the author of the comic Civil War novella The Lavender Boys & Elsie. He has written for many magazines, including The Oxford American, and is a regular contributor to The East Nashvillian. Tommy's songs have been covered by Jimmy Buffett, Todd Snider, "Jason and the Scorchers", the "Del Lord's" Scott Kempner, "Dan Baird & Homemade Sin", and others. He has lived in Nashville for 24 years with his wife Beth and their son Nathan. -

We are pleased to welcome Tommy, who will be our third Nashville act in as many months (see Wil Maring and Robert Bowlin and "Wild Ponies").
