One of our longtime favorite artists here at WNCW, Steve Earle has covered a lot of ground in his songwriting and styles since his 1986 debut Guitar Town. We've heard his Townes Van Zandt side, his New York Side, his Nashville country side.... This year the Texas native is finally paying tribute to some good Texas blues. He paints with pretty broad strokes here -- think of the diversity between Lightnin' Hopkins, Freddie King, Steve Ray Vaughan, ZZ Top, etc. He digs his band The Dukes, and we dig Steve Earle. We hope you do too, this Thursday night.
