Live from the Freight & Salvage: Justin Townes Earle
Once compared to a man who wears many suits, in thirty-eight years Justin Townes Earle has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally. Between releasing full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, a new found sobriety, being born Steve Earle’s son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it’s safe to say JTE has quite the story to tell. In this episode of Live from the Freight & Salvage, Earle gives a raw and honest solo performance, recounts stories of growing up in Nashville, Tennessee and the musical roots of his family, and speaks out about the opioid crisis in the United States.
