Hometown Blues: A Q&A with Justin Townes Earle
September 9 marks the release date of Single Mothers, the fifth full-length album from Americana stalwart Justin Townes Earle. If it feels like it’s been forever since Earle released his last record in 2012 that’s only because Earle has established himself as one of the most consistent, prolific singer-songwriters over the better part of the last decade. His new record was momentarily stalled by some record label troubles over the past year, but Earle is finally releasing Single Mothers, a ten song collection of late-night blues and mournful country-soul that most closely resembles his last record, Nothing’s Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now.
American Songwriter recently caught up with the Nashville-based songwriter, and Earle shared with us some of his favorite songs that he’s written, his secrets for longevity as a singer-songwriter, and how his Nashville hometown has changed for the worse.
well he really should have worn more protective clothing if he didn’t want that to happen
sounds to me like he was asking for it
Are we really sure he was actually shot and decapitated? Idk, sounds like something he would’ve made up. Guys make false decapitation accusations all the time, you know.
If he didn’t want to be decapitated, he shouldn’t have worn a shirt that showed off his neck
You don ‘t just sit in your home without wearing a steel gorget and full body armour and expect not to get decapitated.
That’s just irresponsible behaviour.
In the case of a real decapitation, the male body has ways of shutting it down.
Thanks a lot @bambambaklava …
There’s so much going on here that needs explaining?
What is Taylor doing with her body?
why is lorde yodeling?
Why is jordin latched unto Jason like she don’t wanna catch some of the craziness that’s afflicting these white folks?
i have so much second hand embarrassment when I see Taylor swift dance. And I don’t even like the girl.
Now I know what ‘dancing like a white dad at a bbq’ looks like.
