"Alright my name's Hank Willaims the Third and this is the damn band, and we don't really appriciate the radio stations not playin' guys like Wayne Hancock or Dale Watson or Big Sandy and the Fly-Rite Boys or Johnny Dilks or on and on and on, the guys who are really trying to preserve country music of today. They just don't know what the fuck is goin' on and one day they will come around I'll tell ya."
A true artist in the realm of music. Steve Earle is difficult to define, is he rock, country, folk, contemporary, political, or even bluegrass? He's famous for the country hits Copperhead Road, and Guitar town, but he's put Nirvana's Breed on an album, he's done a record with the Del McCoury band, made controversy by making songs like John Walker's Blues, and even toured solo acoustic a time or two. Check out his website and his music.
Steve, you may be a democrat, but we still love you.
