Steve Earle & The Dukes
June 8, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
On tour in support of his new album GUY, multi-GRAMMY® Award-winner Steve Earle and The Dukes return to the Nancy and David Bilheimer Capitol Theatre. The album is comprised of songs written by one of his two primary songwriting mentors, the legendary Guy Clark. GUY appears ten years after his GRAMMY® Award-winning album TOWNES, his tribute to his other songwriting mentor, Townes Van Zandt. Steve Earle is one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders, and countless others. He is a country rebel with a rock and roll attitude and his unwillingness to conform to the rules of Nashville or Rock & Roll meant that he never broke through into either genre’s mainstream. Instead, he cultivated a dedicated cult following and racked up critical acclaim for songs such as “Copperhead Road” and “Fearless Heart”.
