i have been a americana fan for as long as the genre has had that label. today on the st louis public station kdhx 88.1 they played a cut from the advance copy and i loved it. anybody have any opinions on steve earle's music? i bought guitar town the day it came out.. a lp back in the 80s. i am a real fan.
Steve Earle is one of the best out there. I've seen him a few times, solo and with a band, and have most of his CD's and a couple of LP's. The new one is scheduled for 4/26. Can't get enough. Nightline has done a couple of shows about him.
I was at one of Emmylou's concerts a few years back around the time she released an album that was mostly her original work. She casually mentioned while introducing a song about how difficult it is to write the number of songs to make a decent album "unless you are Steve Earle." Love 'em both.
