Steve Earle Launching Terraplane UK and European Tour: Steve Earle News

On Monday Steve Earle Launching Terraplane UK and European Tour was a top story. Here is the recap: (The Blues) (The Blues) Steve Earle will tour the UK and Europe starting later this month in support of his blues album Terraplane. It was recorded with his band the Dukes after he rediscovered his appreciation of Robert Johnson.

Earle said in July: "He wrote every song that's a big deal. Every form of the post-war alleged blues is based on one Robert Johnson song or another. And it's absolutely the truth. He's every bit the father of the modern genre."

He added of his own approach: "You start looking for ways to find a reason to make another f***ing record, especially the way the business is now. It's kind of like working with a 32-box of crayons and limiting yourself to six - it makes you work harder and dig deeper." See the dates - here.
