Lucinda Williams Talks with Ariel Levy
Lucinda Williams won a Grammy for the song “Passionate Kisses,” which was performed by Mary Chapin-Carpenter; but she spent many years overlooked by the music industry: she was too country for rock and too rock for country. In 1998, American music caught up to her, and her album "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road" broke through. The staff writer Ariel Levy sat down with Williams at the New Yorker Festival in 2012 to talk about God, Flannery O’Connor, and the musician’s path through the music industry. Williams also performed live.
