Lucinda Williams, 'East Side Of Town'

At the 2015 Americana Music Honors & Awards, held at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium in September, singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams received the Album Of The Year award for Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone. After introducing Williams as "our dear, dear friend," Jim Lauderdale brought her out to perform "East Side Of Town" from that album.

Williams' astounding songwriting career dates back to her first collection of all-original material, 1980's Happy Woman Blues; she received the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting in 2011. Anticipation is high for the release of Williams' new record, The Ghosts Of Highway 20, on Feb. 5.
