Lucinda Williams is a unique American singer and songwriter in that she covers the three genres of rock, country, and folk. Born in Lake Charles, Louisiana in 1953, she recorded her first albums in 1978 and 1980 with “Ramblin’” and “Happy Woman Blues”. Her breakthrough album was released in 1998, called “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road”, and received a Grammy Award for best Contemporary Folk Album. Other successful albums included “World Without Tears” (2003), “West” (2007), and “Little Honey” (2008), which hit numbers 18, 14 and 9 respectively on the US Billboard.
Her first hit single “Passionate Kisses”, which came from her 1988 album “Lucinda Williams”, was reason for her first Grammy Award for Best Country Song in 1994. She also won the 2001 Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for her single “Get Right with God”. In the fall of 2007, Lucinda played series of shows in Los Angeles and New York, dedicating five nights in each city and performing her entire catalog of albums.
