Lucinda Williams attempts here to come to terms with the death of her father. Miller Williams, an academic, agnostic and poet, passed away on January 1, 2015.
The singer's husband Tom Overby wrote in a Facebook post:
"Miller used to love to tell the story about the time he met Hank Williams in Lake Charles less than a month before Lucinda was born, so it's very fitting that this song would arrive - as if it was a gift from Hank himself. The way the song just came out of the blue almost mystically answers the very question that Lucinda is asking in the song.
Miller loved Hank and Lucinda has always seen comforting irony in the fact that Miller passed on January 1, the same day that Hank passed. There is such a bittersweetness to this song but it is not without hope, albeit one lined with resignation. A simple hope of a daughter and her father."
Arizona DJ Guy Zapoleon played UB40's "Red Red Wine" four years after it was released as part of a feature on songs that should have been hits. Listeners started requesting the tune and within weeks it was topping the Hot 100.
