The lovely people at Uncut have a regular “An audience with..” feature where they get their readers to send in questions to musicians and next up is americana legend Steve Earle. They prompt readers with suggestions such as How did get cast in The Wire?, What was life like growing up in Texas? and What’s the best advice Willie Nelson ever gave him? Although a better question would be, was the Dixie Chicks’ Earl(e) Had to Die a coded attack on you? And what’s the collective noun for a group of jellyfish? Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org before this Tuesday. And in the meantime watch this performance from Earle earlier (someone who is even more like him?) this year including an epic and magnificent Trump rant.
