It's only been one year since Lucinda Williams released her double album, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, which won the Album of the Year at the Americana Music Awards. But the 62-year-old isn't taking a break; rather, she's prepping the release of her 12th studio album, Ghosts of Highway 20.
Lucinda Williams' latest album, 'Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone,' was a daunting undertaking. The two-disc project covers myriad subjects and styles, from religion to her childhood to her almost 40-year career in country music. But of all the 23 tracks, perhaps none is quite as poignant as the song 'Compassion,' which is based on a poem by her father, famed poet Miller Williams, and inspired the title of the album.
