More From Lucinda Williams
- "Of course, I’m older now. I’m in a different place in my life than when I wrote the songs for ‘Car Wheels’ or ‘Essence’ or whatever. Different things were going on."
- "Back in the 1960s, I saw Peter, Paul and Mary. I was at that age, about 14, and I was mesmerized."
- "Some of their best songs don’t have bridges and choruses. So that made me think I should trust my instincts. My songs were okay, I figured. I didn’t need to change anything."
