Steve Earle is working mans songwriter, inhabiting the ether somewhere between outlaw country and heartland rock and roll. Bearing the pedigree of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clarke, Earle is a master story teller. He has played songwriter, singer, novelist and actor; each with his familiar collected grace. In addition to having penned songs which would go on to be recorded by Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Emmyloud Harris, and myriad other country stars, Earle has also held roles in HBO's "The Wire," and "Treme" both to critical acclaim. In 2011 he released his debut novel, "I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive," and an album by the same name in 2011, proving the breadth of his silver tongue. Steve Earle shows no signs of slowing down his long and varied career, touring the states and bearing the torch of a disappearing American little guy.
