Steve Earle - TownesIn 1995, Steve Earle proclaimed “Townes Van Zandt is the best songwriter in the whole world and I’ll stand on Bob Dylan’s coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that.” The Grammy winning artist, who named his son Justin Townes Earle, has now recorded an entire tribute album to his songwriting hero. The collection includes “Pancho and Lefty,” a number one hit for Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, but the best renditions are “Loretta” and “Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold,” duets with Steve’s wife and son respectively.
