Singer/ songwriter/ actor (and author) Steve Earle joins us once again in eTown, this time to rock out with his band The Dukes. A youthful protégé of legendary songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Steve quickly became a stellar songsmith himself, eventually evolving into a musical force to be reckoned with. His original tunes have been recorded by Willie Nelson, The Pretenders, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, and many, many more. Steve has been with us numerous times, and we’re always honored when he finds time in his extremely busy schedule for a trip to eTown.
