Mercury proudly announces the signing of Lucinda Williams, and the release of her 1st album in 6 years. One of the most acclaimed singer/songwriters in the past 10 years, her songs have been covered by Tom Petty, Emmylou Harris, and Mary Chapin Carpenter ("Passionate Kisses") among others. Car Wheels on a Gravel Road was produced by Steve Earle; "Right in Time" is a perfect example of Lucinda's trademark songwriting and will be launched to AAA and Americana radio.


''Car Wheels on a Gravel Road'' is the 1998 album by singer-songwriter and guitarist Lucinda Williams, her fifth professional release. Issued by Mercury/Polygram Records, it was recorded in Nashville and Canoga Park, California. Lucinda Williams co-produced this album which includes guest appearances by Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris.

''Car Wheels on a Gravel Road'' won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album, and was Willams' first album to go gold. According to ''Billboard'' in February 2008, the album has sold 811,000 copies in the U.S. It was voted as the best album of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll. In 2003, the album was ranked number 304 on ''Rolling Stone'' magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The original CD release was HDCD encoded, although the logo was not printed on the packaging. A remastered deluxe version of the album was released on October 4, 2006, featuring three bonus tracks - "Down the Big Road Blues", "Out of Touch" and "Still I Long For Your Kiss", the latter from ''The Horse Whisperer'' soundtrack - and a 13-song live set recorded for WXPN-FM in mid-1998. - Wikipedia
