      Steve Earle & The Dukes

      with The Mastersons
      If you ever had any doubt about where Steve Earles musical roots are planted, his new collection, So You Wannabe an Outlaw, makes it perfectly plain. Theres nothing retro about this record, he states, Im just acknowledging where Im coming from. So You Wannabe an Outlaw is the first recording he has made in Austin, Texas. Earle has lived in New York City for the past decade but he acknowledges, Look, Im always gonna be a Texan, no matter what I do. And Im always going to be somebody who learned their craft in Nashville. Its who I am.In the 1970s, artists such as Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Paycheck, Billy Joe Shaver and Tompall Glaser gave country music a rock edge, some raw grit and a rebel attitude. People called what these artists created outlaw music. The results were countrys first Platinum-certified records, exciting and fresh stylistic breakthroughs and the attraction of a vast new youth audience to a genre that had previously been by and for adults. In the eighties, The Highwaymen was formed by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings. Their final album The Road Goes On Forever released in 1996 began with the Steve Earle song The Devils Right Hand.Steve Earles 2017 collection, So You Wannabe an Outlaw, is an homage to outlaw music. I was out to unapologetically channel Waylon as best as I could. says Earle. This record was all about me on the back pick-up of a Fender Telecaster on an entire record for the first time in my life. The singing part of it is a little different. I certainly dont sound like Waylon Jennings.Earle has collaborated on recordings with such superb talents as Sheryl Crow, The Indigo Girls, The Pogues, Lucinda Williams Shawn Colvin, Patti Smith, Chris Hillman, The Fairfield Four and The Del McCoury Band. His songs have been used in more than fifty films and have been recorded by such legends as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, and Joan Baez, Carl Perkins, Vince Gill and Waylon Jennings (who recorded Earles The Devils Right Hand twice).
