Three-time Grammy Award winner Lucinda Williams joins us for Bristol Americana Weekend following the 2016 release of her latest album The Ghosts of Highway 20. Recorded in the middle of arguably the most prolific period of her nearly four-decade career, The Ghosts of Highway 20 is unlike any other Williams album. The narratives revolve around the 1500-mile Highway 20 (aka Interstate 20) that runs in part from Georgia to Texas, and features some of the most expansive and experimental arrangements Williams has ever recorded. “A stark, emotionally raw alt-country masterpiece,” says Rolling Stone.
Support from Pierce Brothers, whose irresistible energy and world-class live show has been shaking dance floors around the world.
