Steve Earle is an American powerhouse. Over the past 20 years, the singer-songwriter, actor, producer, and native Texan has established himself as a storyteller and ace guitar player, combining rootsy blues and country with a political streak and a penchant for rock and roll recklessness. Earle’s latest release is The Low Highway, a reflection on forgotten Midwest forgotten landscapes that pairs his signature gravely poetry with rippling guitar lines. Expect old school sounds mixed with radical politics and unforgettable imagery.
