About Justin Townes Earle

Americana singer/songwriter Justin Townes Earle has a lot to live up to: both his famous father, Steve Earle, and his namesake, Townes Van Zandt. With that kind of legacy, it's not surprising that the younger Earle emerged on his 2008 debut album, The Good Life, with a rootsy, country/folk-tinged sound. His voice and songs aren't as rough and pointed as those of his father, but his earthy style and dusty tone pay proper homage to both his elders. ~ Jim Allen
