Lucinda Williams Plots 'Car Wheels On A Gravel Road' 20th Anniversary Tour
By the time 1998's Car Wheels On A Gravel Road took home the honor of Best Contemporary Folk Album at the 41st GRAMMY Awards, Lucinda Williams had established herself as one of the most authentic and talented songwriters the genre had seen in a long time. Now, two decades later, Williams has announced a tour in celebration of the breakout album.
The special anniversary tour will kick off Nov. 2 in Collingswood, N.J. and hit 10 cities before wrapping in Berwyn, Ill. On Nov. 17. Williams will perform the album in full, including such classic songs as "Can't Let Go," "Drunken Angel," "2 Kool 2 B 4-Gotten," "Metal Firecracker," and more followed by selections of songs spanning the rest of her illustrious career.
Williams just wrapped a tour with American outlaw Steve Earle and country legend Dwight Yoakam aptly titled the LSD tour. Williams also recently made a memorable appearance at Newport Folk Festival with jazz saxophonist Charles Lloyd.
Earlier this year, the GRAMMY winner announced she's penning a memoir looking back at her Louisiana upbringing, her experiences in the music industry, and her remarkable career. The book is due out in 2020 from publisher Henry Holt.
Tickets for the Car Wheels On A Gravel Road 20th Anniversary tour go on sale Aug. 23. More information is available at Williams' website.
