Lucinda Williams To Close Americana Festival


The Americana Music Conference and Festival has announced that Lucinda Williams will perform an intimate showcase of her self-titled album, celebrating the 25th anniversary of its release, to close the 2013 event on Sunday, September 22 at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley.

Festival & Conference registrants will receive invitations for the performance and there will be a limited number of tickets on sale to the public.

Williams took eight years to write and record her third album (and second of original songs) and, while Car Wheels on a Gravel Road achieved much more commercial success, Lucinda Williams has also been hailed as a classic.

Co-produced by Austin, Texas based producer Gurf Morlix, the album provided several hit songs for other artists. Mary Chapin Carpenter had a country hit with ‘Passionate Kisses’ – both she and Williams received Grammys for Female Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song respectively. Tom Petty included ‘Changed the Locks’ on his soundtrack album She’s The One.

Lucinda Williams was re-released with bonus tracks in 1998. The album was ranked No.39  on Spin’s 100 Greatest Albums, 1985-2005.
