Grammy Nomination: Steve Earle - Best Folk Album

Steve Earle was honored last night by the Recording Academy with a Grammy Nomination for his album I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive (New West Records) in the Best Folk Album Category. I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive was produced by T Bone Burnett and is the follow up to Earle's Grammy Award winning 2009 release Townes. The album features the celebrated song "This City," written for the HBO Original Series, Treme, which Earle also appeared as an actor. "This City" garnered a Grammy Award Nomination for last year's ceremony as well as Earle's first ever Emmy Award Nomination. Of the collection of songs, Earle stated "They are all, as far as I can tell, about mortality in one way or the other; death as a mystery rather than a punctuation mark or at least, a comma rather than a period."
