Joy Williams Reveals 2019 Tour Dates, New Album ‘Front Porch’

Joy Williams

Joy Williams will launch a new headlining tour Feb. 25 in Phoenix, Arizona. The tour will conclude with two shows at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley on May 3-4. The shows lead up to the release of her upcoming album, Front Porch, due later this spring on Sensibility/Thirty Tigers. The album, produced by Kenneth Pattengale (The Milk Carton Kids) and engineered by Matt Ross-Spang, was recorded in Nashville while Williams was pregnant with her second child.

“So much of this is about coming home,” says Williams. “Whether to a physical place or to yourself. The lines on my face, I can see them more clearly now. But a lot of them are laugh lines. This record feels like breathing more deeply into who I am. Come what may.”

Williams has earned four Grammy awards, and released four solo albums (and four EPs) since her debut in 2001. She was formerly half of The Civil Wars from 2009-2014.

Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, Jan. 11 at 10 a.m. local time.
