Car Wheels On A Gravel Road
20th Anniversary Tour
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of her highly-influential masterpiece, Car Wheels On A Gravel Road, Grammy-winner Lucinda Williams performs the album in its entirety, followed by a set of songs from throughout her remarkable career. The Car Wheels On A Gravel Road set features visual elements to enhance the storyteller style Williams uses for this special performance.
The influence of Car Wheels On A Gravel Road is immeasurable, and it is considered one of the cornerstones of what is now called Americana. Following its release, the record was named Best Album of 1998 in the Village Voice’s annual “Pazz & Jop” critics poll and received a 4-star review in Rolling Stone, while garnering critical praise throughout the press. The album went on to win the Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album and Rolling Stone has ranked it #304 on their list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”
In a long and celebrated career, Williams’ art is as genuine and soulful as when she began writing, and there’s no signs of her slowing down any time soon.
