It's hard to believe all the quirks that define Justin Townes Earle are contained within one lanky body. He's a recovering addict, no stranger to the inside of a holding tank; one of GQ's best dressed subjects in jaunty fedoras, bow-ties and three-piece suits; a Southerner taking inspiration from New York City; the namesake of not one but two Americana legends (his father, Steve Earle, and his father’s hero, Townes Van Zandt); and he’s quickly becoming a musical heavy-hitter in his own right. It comes as no surprise, then, that his music can't fit cleanly into any one genre. By blending Memphis soul, Southern gospel, rollicking country and western, and indie rock with unabashed, unapologetic lessons about hard knocks and hard living, JTE appeals to those who grew up listening to Hank Sr. just as much as those who prefer Hank III. He hits Orlando supporting his latest LP and my favorite album of 2012, Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now. Wisconsin's Cory Chisel opens.
