Justin Townes Earle is an anomaly. He’s tall as the day is long, all angles and elbows and a hard stare, both welcoming and deadly serious. He’s Nashville North, all set up in lower Manhattan now, just like his hero Woody Guthrie, with twang and charm intact.

Tune in to Acid Country with David Heard, 3-5pm for a special archived Studio 5 Live session from Justin Townes Earle.
