Legendary music renegade Steve Earle kicks off the second leg of his tour June 27 in Tucson, AZ and winds it down with four intimate nights in his new hometown of New York on September 22-23 and 25-26. Special guest Allison Moorer, Earle’s wife, supports on all dates.

A longtime Nashville via Texas resident, Earle has called New York City home for the past three years. His latest album, “Washington Square Serenade,” a love letter to his new home, was honored by the Recording Academy in February with a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk/Americana album.

The Americana Music Association has nominated Earle for Artist of the Year for their 7th Annual Americana Honors and Awards Show to be held September 18 at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Selected by members of the Americana Music Association, the 2008 nominees reflect the genre’s penchant for harboring exciting roots artists capable of career longevity and enthralling reinvention.

Earle also produced Joan Baez’s forthcoming album, “Day After Tomorrow” and hosts The Steve Earle Show: The Hardcore Troubadour Radio on Outlaw Country, SIRIUS Satellite Radio. Earle also starred in HBO’s distinguished series “The Wire” and is currently writing his anticipated first novel for the Houghton Mifflin publishing company. His collection of short stories, Doghouse Roses, was published by the company in 2002.
