Steve Earle is one of the most celebrated singer-songwriters of his generation. A protege of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, he quickly became a master storyteller. The Nashville Songwriting Hall of Fame member has written songs for Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders, and countless others. His own music is equally acclaimed, with his 1986 release of the record, “Guitar Town,” which is regarded as a classic of the Americana genre. Subsequent releases like “The Revolution Starts…Now” (2004), “Washington Square Serenade” (2007), and “TOWNES” (2009) received consecutive Grammy Awards.  

Restlessly creative across artistic disciplines, Earle has published a novel and a collection of short stories and enjoyed a storied acting career. He has appeared in the acclaimed television show “The Wire,” and the off-Broadway play “Samara,” for which he wrote the score. Earle also wrote music for and appeared in “Coal Country,” a riveting Public Theater play that dives into the deadliest mining disaster in US history, for which he was nominated for a Drama Desk Award.  

Don’t miss your chance to see Steve Earle live at the Carolina Theatre on August 29.
