"'It Doesn't Have to Be That Good' - Tommy Womack:
Nashville pop-rock sage learns to accept his lot: 'No matter what your life is like, it beats the pants off death.'"
USA Today "Playlist"
"Displaying a disarming optimism amidst the introspective double-clutching
and romantic daydreams than previously, Now What! offers up more of what
Tommy Womack does best - working class blues from the street-view seats of
the restless American dream."
— ~ Blurt
"[Womack] writes better 'regular guy' lyrics than just about anyone I can think of besides Hank Williams."
— ~ Sean Westergaard, AllMusic.com
"Womack mixes country, blues, and rock like a fast-fingered bartender on his new album, 'Now What!'”
— ~ The New Yorker
"...he plows right through the familiar guardrails of rock ’n’ roll ego and ~ The Nashville Scene
country sentimentality without looking back. In his hands, mundane failure becomes MAGNETIC, and OFTEN VERY FUNNY."
— ~ The Nashville Scene, Critic's Pick
"...This is rock ‘n’ roll, or Americana, or whatever you want to call it, that’s AS PURE AND HONEST AS IT GETS."
— ~ American Songwriter
"...To paraphrase Baba Ram Dass, only that in you which is Tommy Womack can hear what Tommy Womack is saying.”
— ~ Third Coast Magazine
““What’s most impressive is the way he relates his particular world and worldview yet winds up with songs that ring with universality.””
— ~ The Tennessean
"On his last album, 2007's ultimately uplifting 'There, I Said It!', Tommy Womack addressed his nervous breakdown, growing sense of mortality, and jaded rock-and-roll dreams with unsparing honesty and plenty of wit. The Nashville-based singer and songwriter, who has since passed 50, brings those
same qualities to 'Now What!'."
— ~ The Philadelphia Inquirer
““Like it's predecessor, it's UNFLINCHINGLY HONEST and CONSISTENTLY FUNNY -- Womack takes very little 100 percent seriously, and that's a good thing....He's a strongly embraced cult artist for a reason. You can hear it on NOW WHAT!””
— ~ Lincoln Journal Star
“NEW album "Now What!" Available Now!”
"Tommy Womack is one of the geniuses of Nashville."
— Jason Ringenberg
"Think Spalding Gray if he’d grown up in Kentucky with a guitar and a vinyl copy of Black and Blue."
— The VIllage Voice (and in syndication)
"'There, I Said It!'...proves, again, that Womack is a clever and discerning songwriter as well as a punk/country arena-rock smartass with a swelling heart of gold."
— No Depression Magazine (May/June 2007)
"Tommy Womack's talent makes me shout out loud."
— Marshall Chapman
“FANS OF ANYONE FROM DYLAN TO WILCO will find plenty to like about DADDY.
— News4U - CD Reviews - People Who See Sound
“There isn't a punted track in sight on For a Second Time, and every successive spin reveals YET ANOTHER REASON TO LOVE YOUR DADDY.”
