The Mix Tape: “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road”

Even youngsters will feel moved by this soulful country tune

Lucinda Williams’ “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road” does what country songs do best. It tells a story and paints a picture of a time and a place, so that we feel like we are there. In this case, itʼs the American South. Lucindaʼs voice is gravelly like her road, and her memories are vivid and poetic. Her unique style will not be lost on your children. This is a simple, yet beautiful song, about a girl and her mother, going for a ride on the wide, dirt roads.
