Steve Earle (Born 1955)

Though born in Virginia and a resident of Nashville since the mid-seventies, Steve Earle, a singer-songwriter, country rocker, and political activist, is chiefly associated with Texas and such Texas artists as Guy and Susanna Clark, with whom he worked closely on first moving to Nashville. He’s been involved in various political causes from the early days of his career, when he allied himself with anti-Vietnam campaigners. He continues to perform original songs often dealing with strong political and social issues. (His 2002 album Jerusalem was chiefly inspired by the U. S. led war on terrorism.) He is the subject of a documentary film, Just an American Boy, which explores his political views as well as his music.
