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.

NYC is a Guitar Town

by Alisa Ali

We here at WFUV have been HUGE fans of Steve Earle for many years now. We've been lucky enough to have him in our studios a couple of times; most recently back in 2009 when he released his album, "Townes" a musical tribute to his late friend and mentor, Townes Van Zandt. You can hear that Words & Music Session with Steve Earle in our archives.

Being called 'America's Best Songwriter' by Time Magazine remains a weight on Lucinda Williams' shoulders, but she carries it and the trials of her life to date by writing songs. The latest collection is called 'West,' and recently Claudia Marshall spoke with Lucinda about the new material, and why the album feels like her best yet.
