Thread Name: Steve Earle takin' heat for new song
Subject: RE: BS: Steve Earle takin' heat for new song
Nashville wouldn't know a creative thought if it jumped up and bit them on the ass. Since the late 60s, Nashville has been a pop hit factory and little else. Steve doesn't play by their hat-band rules, and that's just one of the reasons why I think he's great. His idea of a good country song isn't tin pan alley with a steel guitar, its the kind of thing that Woody and Hank wrote...solid music that says something. Rave on, Brother!
