Out of an abundance of caution with the rising cases of Covid, we have decided to reschedule the Justin Townes Earle Celebration of Life Show. The new date will be January 4th, 2023 and will celebrate Justin’s life and music on what would have been his 41st birthday. All tickets will be honored for the new date, and refunds will be available through point of purchase for 90 days.

Steve Earle & The Dukes have announced the lineup for A Celebration of Justin Townes Earle, Steve’s late son, on Justin’s 40th birthday. The show will take place on Justin’s actual birthday January 4 (2022) at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, and the entire lineup will be performing songs from Justin’s catalog.  The current lineup is as follows: Amanda Shires, Ben Nichols (Lucero), Buddy Miller, Dustin Welch, Elizabeth Cook, Emmylou Harris, Jason Isbell, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Joe Pug, Jon Langford, Lilly Hiatt, Lucinda Williams, Mike Ness and Jonny Two Bags of Social Distortion, Old Crow Medicine Show, Scotty Melton, Stacey Earle And Mark Stuart, Steve Earle & The Dukes, and Willy and Cody Braun.

This show comes exactly a year after the heart-wrenching release of Steve’s tribute album to Justin entitled J.T. of which Associated Press said; “‘J.T.’ does what tribute albums are supposed to do. It elevates the work of the artist, reminds us of what great songs he created, and somehow begins the painful process of sorting through an unfathomable loss.”

Listen to J.T. HERE.

Justin Townes Earle’s last album, The Saint Of Lost Causes, came out in May of 2019 – listen HERE.

The show will benefit Justin’s 4 year old daughter, Etta St. James Earle’s trust.
