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.
