Steve Earle and Lucinda Williams

December 5, 2012 at The Beacon Theatre in New York City

Yes, a frigid wind whipped down Broadway on this brisk December night, but the Beacon Theatre was an oasis of warmth and bonhomie as FUV Holiday Cheer got underway, the second year the radio station has celebrated this annual event at the legendary venue.

Feeling Blessed

Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody!

I feel blessed to be a part of the WFUV family. I truly love this radio station & am so thankful for the music that they've brought into my life. I think music helps people live better. We need it. & Everything is better with music, isn't it?

Americana's pre-eminent songwriter has fused country, rock and roots sounds into a career of beloved, Grammy-winning music. The badass poet of Lake Charles, Louisiana has appeared all over the world, and we were lucky to catch Lucinda Williams in the relatively intimate Clearwater world.

Lucinda Williams - Backstage at Holiday Cheer for WFUV

by Rita Houston

Holiday Cheer for FUV headliner Lucinda Williams followed the lead of Shelby Lynne, Steve Earle and Shawn Colvin and performed her first song ("Lake Charles") with just voice and guitar. It was a nod to the artform that sits at the core of her songs, which have been tugging at our ears, hearts and minds for years. Her set didn't stay quiet for long though... thanks to her killer band, and some help from Steve Earle too.
