Dec 5, 2017

Steve Earle has turned many musical corners during his illustrious career. He has been equally acclaimed as a folk troubadour, a rockabilly raver, a contemplative bluesman, a honky-tonk rounder, a snarling rocker and even a bluegrass practitioner. This definitive Americana artist has won three Grammy Awards, for 2005’s “The Revolution Starts Now,” 2008’s “Washington Square Serenade,” and 2010’s “Townes.” Earle has collaborated on recordings with such superb talents as Sheryl Crow, The Indigo Girls, The Pogues, Lucinda Williams, Shawn Colvin, Patti Smith, Chris Hillman, The Fairfield Four, and The Del McCoury Band. His songs have been used in more than fifty films and have been recorded by such legends as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, and Joan Baez, Carl Perkins, Vince Gill and Waylon Jennings (who recorded Earle’s “The Devil’s Right Hand” twice). Earle’s new collection, “So You Wannabe an Outlaw,” is an homage to outlaw music. “I was out to unapologetically ‘channel’ Waylon Jennings as best as I could.” says Earle. So You Wannabe an Outlaw” is dedicated to Jennings, who died in 2002.
