On Twitter we asked Lucinda Williams ( and management ) which song of hers we should learn, Lucinda put it to her twitter fans and the responses came in for the epic “Car Wheels On A Gravel Road”. Like freehand drawing a bunch of perfect circles , the simple perfection of the song psyched us out a bit….or maybe lots if you judge by the years that drifted by. Then the pandemic happened and shut us down for two years. Well……we never gave up…..and a radical change in approach by Evert Pater and the cover song finally clicked! With our parred down version with pedal steel and the vocals of Hilary Beckett recording in her very own kitchen much like in the song lyrics. You can be the judge of how well we did but we are finally happy with our tribute to Lucinda Williams and we had to be humble and accept what we could bring to the song. Love Lu !
