Description
Steve Earle's turn as himself on the HBO show Treme, coaching a violinist and aspiring singer–songwriter in post-Katrina New Orleans, sparked some of the most grabby songs on this new, 12-track collection, including "That All You Got?" "After Mardi Gras," and "Love's Gonna Blow My Way."

"Earle's status as American legend keeps growing…. He covers his musical spectrum on this 15th album, beginning with a stark gaze at America's decline on the wistful country rock of the title track…. There are blazing rock-outs ('Calico County'), down-home bluegrass ('Warren Hellman's Banjo') and three tuneful songs from Treme. Earle's vocals are often a cryptic Texan growl, but the playing is immaculate and the songcraft admirable."—The Observer

"Earle's latest album pulls no punches in its survey of the American social landscape. The 'low highway' of the title track is a sort of hardship highway travelled by the underclass. It's Springsteen territory, occupied with pride in songs like '21st Century Blues' and the elegiac closer 'Remember Me'. In between, Earle essays accordion-driven Tex-Mex boogie on 'That All You Got?', and jaunty Western swing on 'Love's Gonna Blow My Way'. But the most mordant track has to be 'Burnin' It Down', where he evokes the desperation of those crushed by corporate interests."—The Independent
