20 years after the release of her Southern Gothic masterpiece Car Wheels On A Gravel Road, country-folk songwriter Lucinda Williams performs the album in its entirety, followed by a selection of hits.
Lucindas Car Wheels crisscross the American South, embracing the sounds of the region Memphis soul, Delta blues, Georgia on her mind. The music is the perfect vehicle for her lyrics, which are novelistic in detail, telling stories of bar brawls, broken hearts and even more broken men. Its a journey of an album and Lucinda takes us on that journey once more tonight.
A key theme on the record is the search for a sense of belonging, reflecting a life rich in upheaval. Growing up, Lucindas family moved a lot, and when it came to record labels, she couldnt find a home, either though shed had her successes, winning a Grammy for penning Mary Chapin-Carpenters Passionate Kisses. Originally recorded for Rick Rubins American Records and finally released in 1998 on Mercury, Car Wheels is an ode to that sense of always moving on.
