Literature professor Miller Williams co-founded the University of Arkansas press and read the poem “Of History and Hope” at President Bill Clinton’s second inauguration, but may be best-known for fathering another poet, musician Lucinda Williams. Her newest album Blessed extends her lyrical reach, part of an unbroken string of lyrically literate and musically atmospheric albums since her commercial breakthrough, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road. Help on the newest album comes from friends like Elvis Costello and Matthew Sweet, framing some of her best material. Hear it this week on OverEasy, 7 to 11am and pm, on 92.3 WTTS.
