Women in Music - Lucinda Williams



I thought I would do a short series on fabulous female music artists.  Hope you enjoy.



Lucinda Williams


Lucinda Williams Announces New Album, Tour Dates

She is an American rock, folk, blues, and country singer and songwriter.  She won a Grammy Award for best Contemporary Folk Album for Car Wheels on a Gravel Road in 1998.  Time Magazine's Songwriter of the Year in 2002.

Quotes:

I'm not just a doormat.  I'm not just being stepped on all over the place.  If you look at the bulk of my material, it's about trying to find some strength through that.

You should put time into your craft.  It seems like people want success so quickly, way before they are ready.




The guitar player is really good too!Women in Music

  2. Gawd, I LOVE Lucinda! Car Wheels... is the best album with West close behind. I have to listen to her when MLane isn't home as he does not share my enthusiasm

    I just named one of my new hens Emmylou ( the others are Dusty and Layla).
