His recordings span multiple genres: folk, rock, country, alt-country, and indie music all being represented in his repertoire.

Government Cheese, Bis-quits, & Daddy
From 1985 through to 1992 Womack played lead guitar, and was lead singer in the post-punk band Government Cheese. Following the break-up of Government Cheese, Womack formed the Bis-quits, alongside Will Kimbrough, recording one self-titled album in 1994 on John Prine's Oh Boy! Label.
Womack teamed up with Will Kimbrough once again in February 2005 to create the five piece band Daddy — alongside John Deaderick, Paul Griffith and Dave Jacques. They recorded a live album — Daddy at the Women’s Club and were reportedly banned permanently from the venue afterward. Daddy - For a Second Time, their first studio album, was released in June 2009.
Womack has recorded four solo albums to date: Positively Na Na, Stubborn, Circus Town and (Tommy Womack Band) Washington D.C.. Womack’s latest album There, I Said It, was released to positive reviews in February 2007. His next album is being mastered for release, as of January 2008.
During 2008 and 2009 he toured with a small group from leicestershire called Dawson Smith and the Dissenters.
Published in 1995, Womack’s autobiographical book, Cheese Chronicles: The True Story of a Rock ’n’ Roll Band You’ve Never Heard Of (Eggman Publishing), covered his life and times while member of Government Cheese. His novel The Lavender Boys & Elsie, was published in 2008.
Womack regularly offers podcasts on his official website, and has often contributed to other podcasts. Topics for his official podcasts range from religion to music to politics, often sprinkled with anecdotes from within the Nashville music scene.
