My Favorite Album returns from hiatus for a special Americana Fest edition of the show, featuring one of the most compelling young Americana artists talking about a formative record of the genre. The devastating Kristina Murray joins me to chat Lucinda Williams' 1988 self-titled album. We discuss how this record was overshadowed by Lucinda's classic album 'Car Wheels On A Gravel Road' and the birth of the Americana genre. Kristina tells us how Lucinda's music helped to craft her own sound, what it's like to cover songs from the album and she treats us to a special acoustic rendition of 'Crescent City'.
