Over the past three decades, Steve Earle has established himself as a kind of rootsy Renaissance man. A Texas-bred songwriter that is also a political activist, radio host, rocker, actor and playwright and on Thursday, July 7th he will be bringing his many hits to the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center for a one-night only performance.
Steve Earle is one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation. A protege of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, he quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders, and countless others.
1986 saw the release of his record, ‘Guitar Town’, which shot to number one on the country charts and is now regarded as a classic of the Americana genre. Subsequent releases like ‘The Revolution Starts…Now’ (2004), ‘Washington Square Serenade’ (2007), and ‘Townes’ (2009) received consecutive GRAMMY® Awards.
Restlessly creative across artistic disciplines, Earle has published both a novel and collection of short stories, produced albums for other artists such as Joan Baez and Lucinda Williams and acted in films, television (including David Simon’s acclaimed ‘The Wire’), and on the stage. He currently hosts a radio show for Sirius XM.
In 2009, Earle appeared in the off- Broadway play ‘Samara’, for which he also wrote a score that The New York Times described as “exquisitely subliminal.” Earle wrote music for and appeared in Coal Country, a riveting public theater play that dives into the most-deadly mining disaster in U.S. history, for which he was nominated for a Drama Desk Award.
His 2020 album ‘Ghosts of West Virginia’ was named as one of “The 50 Best Albums of 2020 So Far” by Rolling Stone. Mr. Earle was recently (Nov 2020) inducted into the
Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and released his 21st studio album J.T. on January 6th (2021) as a tribute to his late son Justin Townes Earle.
Earle’s hits over the years include “Guitar Town”, “Goodbye Is All We’ve Got Left”, “Hillbilly Highway” and the iconic “Copperhead Road”. “We’re thrilled to have Steve Earle return to Deadwood Mountain Grand,” said General Manager, Susan Kightlinger. “If this show is anything like the last time he was here, it’s going to be an amazing night for music fans.”
