1953 - Lucinda Williams Born

Country and blues singer Lucinda Williams was born on January 26, 1953.

She moved around a bit as a kid, living in Louisiana and Mississippi, among other places. She put out her first album, "Ramblin'" in 1979. Williams flew under the mainstream radar into the late 1990s, when "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road," her fifth studio effort, finally charted.

She has put out 10 albums, with 2003's "World Without Tears," 2007's "West" and 2008's "Little Honey" (her most recent LP) being the most commercially successful.
