Lucinda Williams

Lucinda Williams' music has gotten her through the darkest days. It's been that way since growing up amid family chaos in the Deep South, as she recounts in her candid new memoir, Don't Tell Anybody the Secrets I told You. Over the past two years, it's been the force driving her recovery from a debilitating stroke she suffered on November 17, 2020, at age 67. Her masterful, multi-Grammy-winning songwriting has never deserted her. To wit, her stunning, sixteenth studio album, Stories from a Rock n Roll Heart, brims over with some of the best work of her career. And though Williams can no longer play her beloved guitar – a constant companion since age 12 – her distinctive vocals sound better than ever.

 

“I'm singing my ass off,” she told Vanity Fair in February, following her first European tour since 2019. The love emanating from audiences and her musical family onstage and in the studio exemplify the healing power of music, says Williams. In 2020, she spent a week in intensive care, followed by a month in rehab before returning home. The blood clot on the right side of her brain impaired the left side of her body's motor skills, forcing her to relearn some of the most basic of activities, like walking. In July 2021, she played her first gig, opening for Jason Isbell at Red Rocks. She began seated in a wheelchair, but soon she was upright. “Just the energy of the audiences being so welcoming and warm and the band playing so great and being so supportive gave me so much strength,” Williams relates. “I figured, ‘Hell, all I have to do is stand up there and sing. How hard can that be?”

 

Her latest album, Stories from a Rock N Roll Heart, gave Williams the opportunity to musically collaborate with some of her favorite performers including Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa, guitarist Stuart Mathis, drummer Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), keyboardist Reese Wynans (Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble), Dolly Parton's bassist Steve Mackey, and guitarist Doug Pettibone.

 

Over the last year, Williams has been honored by BMI for her songwriting, was inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame, and enjoyed a Grammy Week tribute at the Troubadour, with her songs performed by a diversity of Americana artists. She also duetted with Willie Nelson on Billy Joe Shaver's Live Forever, which won a Grammy in February for Best Country Performance. As she promises on her most recent album, Lucinda Williams is “never gonna fade away.”
