Steve Earle & The Dukes are heading out on an extensive tour beginning July 1 in New Braunfels, Texas that will run through Sept. 4 with more dates to be added. The tour will include dates in Memphis, Kansas City, Scranton, Cincinnati, Atlanta and many more, with a Nashville date set for August 30 at the Ryman Auditorium.
Earle most recently released his 20th studio album J.T., a tribute to Steve’s late son Justin Townes Earle, on January 4 of this year. The song “The Saint Of Lost Causes,” a cover of Justin’s 2019 song from the album of the same name, appeared on the tribute project. Steve and the band’s rendition of “The Saint Of Lost Causes” has also received a new live version, with a video by Ehud Lazin originally shot at the new City Winery in NYC.
One hundred percent of the artist advances and royalties from J.T. are being donated to a trust for Etta St. James Earle, the three-year-old daughter of Justin and Jenn Earle.
