[ALT-COUNTRY TROUBADOUR TAO] San Antonio singer-songwriter Steve Earle is perhaps best known in recent years for his work on HBO’s New Orleans drama Treme. The gig landed him Grammy and Emmy nods for his post-Katrina anthem “This City,” also featured on 2011 album I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive. Earle’s latest disc, the just-released The Low Highway, is another trek through the seedy alleyways of Americana—check the dirty riff-rock of “Calico County”—that revisits the Big Easy with fellow Treme contributions “Love’s Gonna Blow My Way,” “That All You Got?” and “After Mardi Gras.” Elsewhere, the outspoken, if weary observer cops to thoughts of burning down the local Walmart and takes the soapbox on “21st Century Blues.” Just as notable, though, is the tender introspection accompanying the hard truths so typical of Earle’s oeuvre. The multi-hyphenate is also readying a memoir and new novel, so his in-store appearance is likely your only chance to catch him in the near future.
