Lucinda Williams

Longtime devotees of Lucinda Williams have two things to be excited about regarding her forthcoming album, Little Honey: (1) She has rekindled the rock-and-roll flame missing from 2007’s West, and (2) she’s calling out Amy Winehouse and Ryan Adams with the song “Little Rock Star.” The 55-year-old songwriter has earned the right to speak her mind, whether it involves self-absorbed celebrities or the unfortunate fellow on West who couldn’t make her “Come On” (You think you’re in hot demand/But you don’t know where to put your hand). With her status firmly cemented as a rock and alt-country icon, Williams is hardly playing out the string.
