Steve Earle – Alone Again Tour, Solo & Acoustic

With Supporting Act, Stacey Earle

Steve Earle is one of the most acclaimed singer/songwriters of his generation. A protégé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, he quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with songs recorded by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders, and countless other artists.

Earle’s debut album, Guitar Town, was the one that put him on the map. The eponymous lead single peaked at Number 7 on the Billboard Hot Country chart and the album is regarded as a classic of the American genre. Since then, subsequent releases like The Revolution Starts…Now, Washington Square Serenade, and TOWNES received Grammy Awards for Best Contemporary Folk Album. He also has four additional nominations in the same category.

Restlessly creative across artistic disciplines, Earle has published a novel and collection of short stories, produced albums for other artists, including Joan Baez and Lucinda Williams, and acted in films, television (including David Simon’s acclaimed The Wire,) and on the stage. In 2009, he appeared in the off-Broadway play Samara, for which he wrote a score that The New York Times described as “Exquisitely subliminal.” Earle also wrote music for and appeared in Coal Country, a Public Theatre play that explored the deadliest mining accident in U.S. history. For that, he was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for his work on the music. He was recently inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
