Awesome Live Music Cover By Local Nashville Artist:

June 3, 2010

I have to admit it; I do love finding and sharing great live music. There is something about a great live performance that can capture the essence and emotion of a song better than a polished and produced recorded version. I’m trying not to let these posts become a habit, but sometimes I find something that I cannot resist but share.

I came across this gem a few weeks back, and is part of a series of excellent live performances produced by The Onion’s AV club. Hopefully they will release the final collection for purchase?

Justin Townes Earle, the son of Steve Earle, is a local Nashville musician who I first came across when he opened for Old Crow Medicine Show at the Ryman back in the late Autumn of 2008. Here he covers Bruce Springsteen’s “Atlantic City”.

    Justin Townes Earle really is a Nashville treasure. I would also recommend this cover that he recorded with Dawn Landes of a classic Dolly Parton/Chet Atkins duet:

    Sorry for the lack of a hyperlink, Hannah… (ducks his tail in shame)
