SOUNDWAVES: (Song Of The Day) Justin Townes Earle

Song of the day

In bated anticipation for tomorrow’s sold out Decemberists’ show at the Pageant in St. Louis, today’s song of the day is from the opening act for the Decemberists, Justin Townes Earle. Son of Steve Earle, stepson of Allison Mooer, and named for songwriter Townes Van Zandt, Justin creates story driven Americana music. Check out the live KEXP performance of his track “They Killed John Henry” off of his 2010 album Midnight at the Movies below.
