Released in 1988, her self-titled album featured the single Passionate Kisses, a song later recorded by Mary Chapin Carpenter, which garnered Williams her first Grammy Award for Best Country Song in 1994.
Williams has received more than a dozen Grammy nominations and released a string of albums since 1988 that have been critically acclaimed including her 1998 breakthrough album Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, an album that presented a broader scope of songs that fused rock, blues, country and Americana.
The album went gold and earned Williams a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. In 1992, she earned another Grammy in the Best Rock Female Vocal Performance category for the single Get Right with God.
In 2002, Time magazine named her America’s Best Songwriter.
