Due in part to formative relationships and influence from Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle has been one of the formative members of roots and blues since the 1980s but continues to expand and revitalize Americana in a number of different mediums. In 2011, for instance, he both released his 14th solo studio album, I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive, and published his debut novel of the same name. Last year, he teamed with his road band Dukes and Duchesses to release The Low Highway. Expect plenty of guitar-pickin’, longing lyrics, and a side or two of blues.
