About Steve Earle

Born in 1955 as Stephen Fain Earle, Steve Earle spent most of his childhood growing up in San Antonio, Texas. He would learn guitar at the age of 11, and three years later would run away from home to follow his musical idol, singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt. He would formally drop out of school at 16 and moved in with his uncle, a musician living in Houston. Earle finally met Townes Van Zandt, and would spend the rest of his life pursuing his passion for music.

Steve moved to Nashville, Tennessee and spent most of his younger years working low paying jobs by day and pursuing his musical career by night. One of his first accomplishments was writing and recording on Texas musician Guy Clark's album Old No. 1. He would be included in the 1975 documentary Heartworn Highways, about the Nashville music scene. While he would grow musically and still be around his idol Townes Van Zandt, Steve would eventually move back and forth between Tennessee and Texas and continue to take various jobs all while pursuing his career as a musician.

Earle's music would begin to take on political overtones, especially in the wake of the Vietnam war. Over the course of his lifetime Earle would become increasingly conscientious about the issues of his time, writing lyrics that were patently anti-war and anti-death penalty. His political activities would crescendo during the Bush years, when Earle wrote songs leading up to the 2004 elections calling into question the actions of the Bush administration.

His most recent releases, I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive and The Low Highway, hit the country charts at #4 and #12 respectively. These most recent successes have shown that Steve is still the innovator he has always been, now with 4 decades of success in the industry.


Previous Hits

Steve Earle's music career would first pickup major traction in 1982, when he released the EP Pink & Black with his band The Dukes. This would lead him to a seven record deal with MCA Records, with his first major release being Guitar Town in 1986. He would reach the Top Ten single list back to back in 1986 and 1987, with his tracks "Guitar Town" and "Goodbye's All We've Got Left".

Earle would experiment in many different genres and styles, always keeping critics and fans alike guessing as to what he would put out next. Copperhead Road in 1989 would be an eclectic mix of hard rock and folk, while 1990's The Hard Way would take him further in the rock direction.

Steve would take a four year hiatus from writing, but made a huge comeback with Train a Comin' which would get a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Folk Album in 1996. The album marked a return to his Texas folk roots. His next two back to back releases I Feel Alright and El Corazon would cement his return to folk stardom. He would receive another Emmy nod with Townes, a tribute to his idol and mentor Townes Van Zandt.


Trivia

Steve would have a correspondence with a death row inmate for a number of months. He would eventually attend their execution, and write a song about the experience titled "Over Yonder". The interaction is part of what has made Steve so passionately against the death penalty. Earle also regularly participates in benefits for the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation

You can see Steve on the hit TV series The Wire, where he plays Walon, a recovering drug addict. Steve was a recurring character on the show. You can also hear Steve's songs "I Feel Alright" and "Way Down in the Hole" in seasons 2 and 5 of the show.
