It's doubtful that anyone has had a more troubled relationship with Nashville than Steve Earle. After dropping out of high school and moving there from Texas in the early 70s, he fell in with legendary outsiders like Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, perfecting his distinctive songwriting and developing a penchant for hard drugs. He eventually hooked up with MCA and in 1985 released Guitar Town, a harbinger of "new" country's return to the music's roots. —Peter Margasak, 1995
