An outlaw country singer-songwriter in the tradition of Townes Van Zandt and Waylon Jennings, Steve Earle achieved prominence in the ‘80s as a rough-and-tumble troubadour with a knack for vivid storytelling. After tackling the blues, Earle got back to his roots on his most recent release, So You Wanna Be an Outlaw, which is packed with enough twangy riffs and gruff refrains that you'll feel like you've been transported to a Southern honky-tonk.
