The father of “New Country,” Steve Earle is coming back with an ode to the blues.
A masterful storyteller, occupying a space between country and rock, Steve Earle released his debut, Guitar Town, in 1986. Cultivating a body of work throughout his career that is politically outspoken and graceful in its simplicity, Earle has received increasing recognition for his work over the course of 15 studio albums. Starting his career as a songwriter, Earle’s songs have been recorded by a staggering number of artists including the likes of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders, and Joan Baez to name a few. Over the years, he has also taken on a multitude of projects including acting, producing, and writing, as well as starting the song-writing camp Camp Copperhead. His upcoming album Terraplane, to be released on February 17th, will celebrate the blues, a dedication to the human experience that focuses more inward than his previous releases.
You can catch Steve Earle’s live performance at Waterloo Records on February 12th or stream his music right here on KUTX.
