Side of the Road

Lucinda Williams

If you don't have Lucinda Williams' Eponymous album, go buy it right the hell now.


She's a chick with balls. I dig this. And there's no one on the planet that rolls words around the way she does...check out how she sings the word "couch" in this duet with another god among men, Elvis Costello:


You've made my day. That's a great Lucinda song. Didn't know there was an Elvis duet. I'm also shocked to see CMT showed something this awesome. They used to play music, but then they decided to emulate MTV and started sucking hardcore.

Also glad you're making it by!

not the best form of flattery

Yeah, CMT copying MTV. I heard that MTV is actually going to start showing music videos again.

Glad I was able to tune you into another bit of awesomeness, Sire.

Speaking of Elvis, try and catch his show called "Spectacle". It's an outstanding series dedicated to an artist each week complete with rarities done by the artist and a live interview.

Costello is a walking music wikipedia.
