Steve Earle and The Dukes 

Wednesday, Aug. 16 at The Egyptian

According to his online biography, Steve Earle has been called "a folk troubadour, a rockabilly raver, a contemplative bluesman, a honky-tonk rounder, a snarling rocker and even a bluegrass practitioner." Whatever genre he's slotted him into, there is one thing critics agree on: The man can sing.

Music fans may know the Grammy Award-winning Earle for his throaty, gravel-edged voice, but he's also an author, actor, radio show host, and political activist known for his stance against the death penalty and getting the Confederate "Stars and Bars" removed from the Mississippi state flag.

The 62-year-old Earle—who is in recovery from a yearslong heroin addiction, cares for his autistic son and is writing an autobiography—has 16 studio albums under his belt, including the '70s-inspired So You Wannabe an Outlaw, which came out in June on Warner Bros. And you thought you were busy.
