Justin Townes Earle is living proof that there are still artists out there who revere the deep roots of the American musical tradition while still pushing the boundaries to create something new and wonderful by effortlessly integrating blues, folk, and country.

Once compared to a man who wears many suits, Justin Townes Earle has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally. Between releasing four 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. 

Listen back to hear Justin Townes Earle's Studio 5 Live session and watch a live set of 'The Saint of Lost Causes'. Proudly brought to you by Mountain Goat.
