Southern Fried Festival 2018
Three-time Grammy Award recipient and 11-time Grammy nominee Steve Earle is a cornerstone artist of Americana music. One of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation; he has released twenty albums - a number of them with his iconic band, The Dukes - and his songs have been recorded by such music legends as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Carl Perkins, Waylon Jennings, Vince Gill and Joan Baez.
During his four-decade career, Earle has also become a novelist, a film, TV and stage actor, a playwright, a short-story author, a record producer and a radio host. He is a longtime activist whose causes have included the abolition of the death penalty and the removal of the confederate flag. Always musically adventurous, Steve Earle has crafted folk, blues, rock, country, rockabilly and bluegrass recordings. His diverse collaborators on disc have included such notables as The Pogues, Lucinda Williams, Patti Smith, The Fairfield Four, The Indigo Girls, Chris Hillman, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson and Shawn Colvin.
Arguably one of America's greatest ever songwriters, his body of work stands comparison with any artist of the last century in its depth, breadth, variety, and emotional and political fearlessness.
For the last seven years, The Mastersons - husband-and-wife duo Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore - have kept up an inexorable touring schedule, performing as both the openers for Steve Earle and as members of his band, The Dukes, in addition to playing their own relentless slate of headline shows and festivals. It was Earle, in fact, who pushed the duo to record their acclaimed debut, Birds Fly South, in the first place.
