Steve EarleSteve Earle

A protégé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Earle quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, The Pretenders, Joan Baez and countless others.

1986 saw the release of his debut record, Guitar Town, which shot to number one on the country charts and immediately established the term “New Country.”

What followed was an extremely exciting and varied array of releases including:

~ The biting hard rock of Copperhead Road (1988)
~ The minimalist beauty of Train A Comin’ (1995)
~ The politically charged masterpiece, Jerusalem (2002)

…and the Grammy Award Winning albums:

~ The Revolution Starts…Now (2004),
~ Washington Square Serenade (2007)
~ Townes (2009)

~ I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive (2011) is Steve Earle’s 14th Studio Album and shares the same name with his 2011 debut novel. Of the novel, Patti Smith stated, “Steve Earle brings to his prose the same authenticity, poetic spirit and cinematic energy he projects in his music. I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive is like a dream you can’t shake, offering beauty and remorse, redemption in spades.”
