Focus On: Justin Townes Earle

It's not always easy going into the family business. At an early age, Justin Townes Earle echoed his father Steve's career path, becoming a hard-living Americana singer/songwriter. Along with creating songs that built him a fast following, he also developed a drug habit that nearly killed him. Like his dad (who was a distant character in his childhood), Justin cleaned up and is now on the road solidifying his reputation as "the next big thing" - a title he owes truly to his own talent and hard work.

This concert was recorded live at the Kent Stage in Kent, Ohio, in June 2009 by contributing producer Craig Adams.

What I found works is: 1) right click on download and load it to your hard drive, 2) burn that file to a CD, 3) it will be in the form of an MP3, I believe, so it will not play on some players or in some car players. Now I have a question, some of the concerts are too large (too much time) to download to a CD. Is there a way to break this file up? Also, when I burn a concert to a CD it is in the form of one track. Is there a way to break this down by song?

Great, great concert. Audio sounds very good. A question though, is there a way I can download to itunes or WM so I can listen again this weekend at the cottage where I dont have internet access?

I could not connect for for some reason to this concert using Windows Media. I have not had this problem before and even when I followed the directions provided by Windows help, I got nowhere. Suggestions?
