if you're after some truly brilliant but sad music, look no further - After 11 highly acclaimed studio albums, Williams is in the most prolific period of her nearly 4 decade career (this being her 2nd album in 18 months), as she continues to challenge herself creatively.

Revered guitarists Bill Frisell & Greg Leisz provide incredible sonic textures & ethereal tones that enhance Williams' brilliant writing & wise & weathered vocals. 'The Ghosts of Highway' 20 features a common thread running through the songs, uniting them under one collective theme as the haunting title track illustrates. 12 of the 14 songs were inspired by various periods & experiences throughout Williams’ life that all tie into Highway 20 (aka Interstate 20), which runs in part from Georgia to Texas. "vast, thoughtful & profound....bruising, emotional, majestic" 8/10 - uncut.

Kurtis recommends: "her lazy, beaten drawl is a true testament that pleasure is always tinged with pain"
