The Newport Folk Festival celebrates its 52nd year with big name country-friendly acts like Justin Townes Earle, Wanda Jackson, Emmylou Harris, the Civil Wars, Amos Lee, the Secret Sisters and many more.
Singer-songwriter-author-actor-non-shaver Steve Earle has announced the release of his new album, "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive,' due on April 26 via New West Records. The 11-track album was produced by the ubiquitous T-Bone Burnett, and will be followed in two weeks by a novel of the same name.
Justin Townes Earle announces plans to drown himself in New York City in the most upbeat, infectious way possible on his new single 'Harlem River Blues.' The hand-clap laden song serves as the title track from the singer-songwriter's fourth album released last fall.
Justin Townes Earle’s story has quintessential, feel-good moments. Country music courses through his DNA; his dad is outlaw'ish, outspoken country legend Steve Earle, and he was named after songwriter Townes Van Zandt. But Earle isn’t resting on the association of his names.
