THIS WILL BE AN EARLY SHOW!
Justin Townes Earle -
American singer-songwriter and musician. He is a son of alternative country artist Steve Earle and is named after Townes Van Zandt.
Once compared to a man who wears many suits, in thirty-two short years Justin Townes Earle has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally. Between releasing four full-length critically-acclaimed
albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, a new found sobriety, being born Steve Earle’s son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it’s safe to say JTE has quite the story to tell. His fifth album (and first ever on Vagrant Records) serves as the perfect platform for such narrations.
“As I’ve gotten older my anger comes from a very different place. It’s more rational and mature. I guess
that comes along with clarity,” JTE reflects. Single Mothers and Absent Fathers find Justin dealing with
past struggles and anger with more ease than ever before. Creating a nostalgic feeling with the return to
his signature sound, JTE takes listeners on a journey through some of his most personal stories yet on
what can only be described as an authentic country records.
In September 2009, Earle received an Americana Music Award for New and Emerging Artist of the Year. In 2011 Earle received the Americana Music Award in the Song of the Year category for "Harlem River Blues". Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now was listed at album number 37 on Rolling Stone's list of the top 50 albums of 2012, with the annotation as follows: "The son of country-rock renegade Steve Earle has grown into a songwriter to rival his dad."
