Many artists begin their careers without support from their family.
But songwriter Lucinda Williams says her father was especially encouraging of her musical career. She's even found a way to remember him in her songs.
The Ghosts of Highway 20 is the latest release from the acclaimed singer-songwriter. In many ways, the record follows her early life. Her family moved frequently in her formative years, touching down in many of the towns and cities along Highway 20. The family eventually settled in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where her father had landed a teaching job.
