Justin Townes Earle, Live In Concert: Newport Folk 2013

Meagan Beauchemin for NPR

Justin Townes Earle has marinated in outlaw country music his whole life: The son of Steve Earle, named for the legendary Townes Van Zandt, was born to be an iconoclast. The younger Earle has already released five albums in his relatively short career — the latest of which is last year's Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now — and along the way has broadened his roots-country sound to incorporate folk and gospel music.

Hear Justin Townes Earle perform as part of the 2013 Newport Folk Festival, recorded live on Saturday, July 27 in Newport, R.I.

    Stephen Thompson is a writer, editor and reviewer for NPR Music, where he speaks into any microphone that will have him and appears as a frequent panelist on All Songs Considered. Since 2010, Thompson has been a fixture on the NPR roundtable podcast Pop Culture Happy Hour, which he created and developed with NPR correspondent Linda Holmes. In 2008, he and Bob Boilen created the NPR Music video series Tiny Desk Concerts, in which musicians perform at Boilen's desk. (To be more specific, Thompson had the idea, which took seconds, while Boilen created the series, which took years. Thompson will insist upon equal billing until the day he dies.)
