Williams showed an affinity for music at an early age. She began playing guitar at 12.
Williams was playing publicly in Austin, Texas and Houston, Texas by her early 20s. Her music was concentrated on a folk-rock-country blend. In 1978, She moved to Jackson, Mississippi to record her first album, for Smithsonian/Folkways Records. Titled Ramblin' was a collection of country and blues covers. She followed it up in 1980 with Happy Woman Blues, which consisted of her own material. Unfortunately, her first two albums could not bring the desired success.

The single "Changed the Locks", received radio play around the country. The song was about a broken relationship. The single was successful in gaining fans among music insiders, including Tom Petty, who would later cover the song.Its follow-up, Sweet Old World (Chameleon, 1992), was a melancholy album. Themes of suicide and death were dealt in this album.
Williams's biggest success came as a songwriter during the early '90s. A cover of "Passionate Kisses" (from Lucinda Williams) was recorded by Mary Chapin Carpenter recorded in 1992. The song became a smash country hit for which Williams rewarded with the Grammy Award for Best Country Song in 1994.
Williams's commercial success was moderate even though she had garnered considerable critical acclaim.

The single "Get Right With God" won Williams the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Female Rock performance.
