Steve Earle to Return to State College for Solo Performance

See Steve Earle perform in an intimate solo acoustic show at The State Theatre on Thursday February 27, 2014 at 8pm. Steve Earle is an alternative country musician known for his storytelling and songwriting. This upcoming performance will be the fifth time he has performed at the State Theatre. Due to overwhelming audience requests, Steve Earle has performed on the State Theatre stage more than any other nationally touring music act.

He is best known for his song “Copperhead Road”. A performance of this song can be found here. With fifteen Studio albums, Steve Earle returned to the studio in The Spring of 2013 to record his new album, The Low Highway. The new album is being favorably compared to Steve Earle’s Grammy Award-winning album, The Revolution Starts…Now from 2004. Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Travis Tritt, Waylon Jennings, and Joan Baez have recorded his songs.

Steve Earle is also recognized as an actor from his roles on the HBO Original Series, The Wire and the New Orleans based TV drama, Treme. He is also the host of The Steve Earle Show: Hardcore Troubadour Radio, on Sirius XM Radio.
