Three-time Grammy award-winner, Lucinda Williams has received a Grammy Award nomination for her critically-acclaimed album Little Honey in the brand new BEST AMERICANA ALBUM category. Released in October 2008, Little Honey is Williams’ ninth studio album and easily her most eclectic to date.
Little Honey was produced by Eric Liljestrand, who engineered Williams’ West, and Tom Overby. Little Honey
features guest appearances by Elvis Costello, Matthew Sweet, Suzanna
Hoffs, Jim Lauderdale, Tim Easton and the legendary Charlie Louvin.
2009 has been a year of milestones for Williams. Not only is she celebrating her 30th
Anniversary as a recording artist, she kicked off the celebratory tour
by getting married on stage at the legendary First Avenue club in
Minneapolis on September 19th. The nomination is a beautiful way to end what has been an incredible year for the celebrated artist.
The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on January 31, 2010, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Longtime Williams fans will notice two conspicuous developments on the follow-up to last year's meditative West. "These are rock & roll songs," she says. "They kinda remind me of the stuff on Car Wheels." Williams also sounds newly upbeat on songs like "Real Love" and "Honey Bee," inspired by her recent engagement to her manager, Tom Overby. "Little Rock Star" is about the travails of Amy Winehouse and Ryan Adams. "It's an empathetic look at what they're going through," she says. "It's not like I don't understand. There's part of me in there, too."
