Steve Earle is a singer-songwriter who has released ten critically acclaimed albums since his 1986 debut album, "Guitar Town", burst onto the Nashville scene & made him a star overnight. A prolonged struggle with drug addiction resulted in jail time in the early 1990s, but Earle's recovery & comeback albums, beginning with the 1995 Grammy-nominated "Train A Comin'," have all been critical & commercial successes. His latest album is "Transcendental Blues". Earle also works on behalf of a number of political causes, which have been the subjects of his songs for decades. In the struggle to end the death penalty, he serves as a board member of the Journey of Hope & is affiliated with both Citizens United for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (CUADP) & the Abolitionist Action Committee. He is also a supporter of the Campaign for a Landmine-Free World & the Kensington Welfare Rights Union. He has been the subject of recent profiles in "Esquire" & "Men's Journal" & has appeared on "Nightline" & "CBS Sunday Morning". He is a frequent guest on David Letterman's & Jay Leno's shows.
