Thursday Night the 4th between 8pm & Midnight: STEVE EARLE - The Low Highway

One of WNCW's favorite songwriters, Steve Earle releases The Low Highway on April 16th.  We'll give you a great preview of it this Thursday as we spin each tune from it throughout the evening's mix.  Technically "Steve Earle and the Dukes (and Duchesses)", this is Earle's 15th studio album.  If there's a theme on this one, it's endless road traveling.  As he writes in the liner notes, "I've been on every interstate highway in the lower forty-eight states by now and I never get tired of the view."
