She Pioneered Americana as We Know It Today – Now, See Lucinda Williams Live

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of her 1998 album, Car Wheels On A Gravel Road, Lucinda Williams comes to San Antonio for an evening of tunes! Williams will perform the album in its entirety, followed by a second set of songs from throughout her remarkable career. Be there on Sunday, April 7th, beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Three-time Grammy Award winner Lucinda Williams has been carving her own path for more than three decades now. Born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Williams had been imbued with a “culturally rich, economically poor” worldview. Several years of playing the hardscrabble clubs gave her a solid enough footing to record a self-titled album that would become a touchstone for the embryonic Americana movement – helping launch a thousand musical ships along the way.

While not a huge commercial success at the time, Lucinda Williams retained a cult reputation, and finally got the reception it deserved upon its reissue in 2014. For much of the next decade, Williams moved around the country, turning out work that won immense respect within the industry (winning a Grammy for Mary Chapin Carpenter’s version of “Passionate Kisses”). While her recorded output was sparse for a time, the work that emerged was invariably hailed for its indelible impressionism — like 1998’s Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, which notched her first Grammy as a performer.

The past decade brought further development, both musically and personally, evidenced on albums like West (2007) and Blessed (2011). This all lead to the 2014 release of Williams’ first double studio album Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone. The album received overwhelming praise from the media and fans, thus proving that Williams’ songwriting is as strong and important as it has ever been.
