Justin Townes Earle: American Music
Since the release of Justin Townes Earle's acclaimed 2008 debut, the singer-songwriter has scarcely had a moment's rest. Appearing less than a year later, Midnight at the Movies shows Earle seamlessly integrating a variety of American musical styles, from bluegrass and blues to indie-rock and folk. In a session with host David Dye, Earle performs songs from his new album.
Earle has come a long way in his brief career. The son of iconic songwriter Steve Earle, the 27-year-old spent his youth self-destructing while performing in several groups. Since being kicked out of his father's band, Earle has cleaned up and spent more time focusing on his own music -- and it shows on his records.
