Steve Earle's in town for three shows at City Winery, supporting I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive, his T-Bone Burnett-produced album from spring of last year. A record grooved with the familiar lines and life-worn tone of the veteran singer and songwriter's 21st-century work, it also kicks with tuneful, tangy hillbilly guitar and plenty of the tasteful interplay you'd expect from Earle, particularly with Burnett at the helm. All three shows will also feature Allison Moorer and her band, so here's hoping for a Moorer appearance with her husband on Never Get Out's standout ballad "Heaven or Hell."
