Steve Earle is one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation. A protégé of legendary songwriters, Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, he quickly became a master storyteller in his own right with songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders and countless others. In 1986, he released his record Guitar Town, which shot to number one on the country charts and is now regarded as a classic of the Americana genre. Subsequent releases like The Revolution Starts…Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007), and TOWNES (2009) received consecutive GRAMMY® Awards.
Restlessly creative across artistic disciplines, Earle has published both a novel and collection of short stories, produced albums for other artists such as Joan Baez and Lucinda Williams, and acted in films, television (including David Simon’s acclaimed The Wire) and on the stage. He currently hosts a radio show for Sirius XM.
In 2009, Earle appeared in the off-Broadway play Samara for which he also wrote a score that The New York Times described as “exquisitely subliminal”. Earle wrote music for and appeared in Coal Country, a riveting public theatre play that dives into the most deadly mining disaster in US history for which he was nominated for a Drama Desk Award. His 2020 album Ghosts of West Virginia was named as one of “The 50 Best Albums of 2020 So Far” by Rolling Stone.
Mr. Earle was recently (November 2020) inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and released his 21st studio album J.T. on Jan. 6, 2021 as a tribute to his late son Justin Townes Earle.
Opening for Steve Earle is The Whitmore Sisters made up of Eleanor and Bonnie Whitmore, two of roots music’s most accomplished songwriter/instrumentalist/vocalists.
