Steve Earle is one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation. A protege of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, he quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders, and countless others.
1986 saw the release of his debut record, Guitar Town, which shot to number one on the country charts. What followed was a varied array of releases including the Grammy Award-winning albums The Revolution Starts…Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007), and TOWNES (2009). A true Renaissance man, Earle is a novelist, film, TV, and stage actor, playwright, record producer, and radio host.
Ghosts of West Virginia, Earle’s 20th studio album, will be released on May 22 from New West Records.
