iTunes Editors' Notes

Nashville knew it would have its hands full with Steve Earle, especially when he later showed up to the party in his leather jacket, faded army fatigues, and dark-cop sunglasses. The hell-raiser had outlaw written all over him. But when he opened his mouth to sing the tunes that would comprise his Guitar Town debut, country fans couldn't possibly look away or stop listening. Earle sounded like the Springsteen of country, with anthemic songs, literate lyrics, and the ability to connect with the heart and soul of anyone who heard him. Key tracks: "Someday," "Good Ol' Boy (Getting Tough)," "Goodbye's All We Got Left to Say," "Guitar Town"

I saw Earle for the umpteenth time earlier this year and Guitar Town is as uplifting and toetappingly brilliant as the first time I heard it.

In the strictest sense, Steve Earle isn't a country artist; he's a roots rocker. Earle emerged in the mid-'80s, after Bruce Springsteen had popularized populist rock & roll and Dwight Yoakam had kick-started the neo-traditionalist movement in country music. At first, Earle appeared to be more indebted to the rock side than country, as he played a stripped-down, neo-rockabilly style that occasionally verged on outlaw country. However, his unwillingness to conform to the rules of Nashville or rock...
