“I had given up on ever getting a record deal and became a staff songwriter, going into the office eight hours a day and trying to write for the radio,” says the Nashville-based country rocker Steve Earle. “What happened was that during that period, I learned a lot about craft.” When Earle finally did get to make a full-length album in 1986, after having written songs for artists ranging from Waylon Jennings to Carl Perkins, he could apply professional songwriting polish to his Dylanesque verse and outlaw style of music. The result was Guitar Town, an album that straddled country and rock to create something startlingly new. In the words of a fellow artist, John Hiatt, it was “pretty much a darn near flawless record. Great writing, fantastic album.”
