The Completely Ignored Podcast

S5, E6: Damhnait Doyle on Car Wheels on a Gravel Road (Lucinda Williams)

July 11, 2019

To close out our 5th season, we're presenting a very dusty episode of the Completely Ignored podcast and in spite of a bit of audio crackle, we manage to pull out a fun chat with Canadian singer/songwriter Damhnait Doyle. The focus is Lucinda Williams and her much-decorated Car Wheels on a Gravel Road full-length. An album that doesn't sound any more or less fresh than it did 20 years ago, we chat Damhnait up about the enduring appeal of this style of music (Americana?!?) and the concept of being a "overnight sensation" after 10+ years in the industry (and yet we didn't really mention Shelby Lynne). There's also a shitload of talk about Steve Earle and lots of fun banter about interactions and little chats with Willie Nelson.
