Lucinda Williams spent part of her childhood in Macon when her father, poet Miller Williams, taught at Wesleyan College. On Saturday, she will return to Macon for a show at the Cox Capitol Theatre, a poet in her own way.
For people who are really into listening to lyrics, her music is such a great experience. She writes about every mans man, every womans woman, just the everyday person. Its so poetic, it strikes you, said Roger Riddle, marketing manager for the Moonhanger Group, which manages the theater.
Though Williams music often falls under the country music label, it better fits in the Americana genre, Riddle said.
She was probably one of the first people to make the Americana genre come to life. She was one of the first in country, along with Steve Earle, to really define what that genre was going to become, he said. Shes a musicians musician; shes something special.
The Kenneth Brian Band will open the show, which starts at 8 p.m.
When: 8 p.m. May 31
Where: Cox Capitol Theatre, 382 Second St.
