The Good Life

Justin Townes Earle is the son of one alt-country luminary (Steve Earle) and the namesake of another (Townes Van Zandt), but his debut album has little in common with the work of either of his clearest musical connections. The Good Life is rooted instead in pre-World War II acoustic folk and blues; add a few vinyl pops and scratches, and you’d almost believe this album was the product of 1938 rather than 2008. Justin smartly keeps not just the sound but the subject matter timeless, centering his lyrics around deathless themes of travel and wounded romance.
