Steve Earle & The Dukes have announced a US tour, beginning on July 1 in New Braunfels, TX and ending on September 4 in Beaver Dam, KY – with more dates to come. Steve will also later play solo dates in the fall, following the tour with the band. The iconic Americana artist and his band most recently released his 20th studio album J.T., a tribute to Steve’s late son Justin Townes Earle, on January 4 of this year. From that album was the song “The Saint Of Lost Causes,” a cover of Justin’s 2019 song from the album of the same name. Today, Steve and the band’s rendition of “The Saint Of Lost Causes” has also received a new live version, with a video by Ehud Lazin that was originally shot at the new City Winery in New York City.

Listen to J.T. HERE.

Camp Copperhead, Steve Earle’s songwriting camp, featuring various workshops, private performances, and collaboration opportunities, is also resuming this year from September 7 – 10 at Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY. This will be the camp’s seventh year and will also feature Anders Osborne & Anaïs Mitchell.

J.T. was celebrated by the press, with Steve speaking to The New York Times about the process of making the album and later performing the songs “Far Away in Another Town” and “Harlem River Blues” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! American Songwriter said of the record; “the heartbreak is palatable and one can’t help but be moved by both the confession and the candor. Indeed, the poignancy is not without purpose,” while Stereogum wrote “the elder Earle and his band the Dukes remind us what an impeccable writer his son was, delivering 10 warm, earnest interpretations of Justin’s songs that brim with aching beauty.”

100% of the artist advances and royalties from J.T. are being donated to a trust for Etta St. James Earle, the three-year-old daughter of Justin and Jenn Earle.
