Next Week in Music | Jan. 4-10 • The Best & The Rest Of The Upcoming Releases

Welcome to another year of new music. Enjoy the quiet while it lasts.

Welcome to another year of new music. Not surprisingly, things are starting off fairly slow. Enjoy the quiet while it lasts. Cause I can guarantee it won’t last long. Anyway, here’s everything coming down the pipe this week:



Steve Earle & The Dukes

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “On the forthcoming album ​J.T.,​ ​Steve Earle & The Dukes pay tribute to ​Steve’s late son ​Justin Townes Earle, who passed away on Aug. 20, 2020 in Nashville. The album will be released digitally on what would have been ​Justin’s​ 39t​h​ birthday, Jan. 4. “The record is called J.T. because Justin was never called anything else until he was nearly grown. Well, when he was little, I called him Cowboy,” explains S​teve Earle​. “For better or worse, right or wrong, I loved Justin Townes Earle more than anything else on this earth. That being said, I made this record, like every other record I’ve ever made… for me. It was the only way I knew to say goodbye.” J.T. finds ​Steve Earle & The Dukes covering 10 of ​Justin’s songs — from I​ Don’t Care, which appeared on his 2007 debut EP, ​Yuma,​ and a trio of selections from his full-length debut album The Good Life (Ain’t Glad I’m Leaving, Far Away In Another Town and Lone Pine Hill)​ to later compositions like 2017’s ​Champagne Corolla and 2019’s The Saint Of Lost Causes, which was the title track of ​Justin’s eighth and final studio album. ​J.T.​ closes with ​Last Words, a song ​Steve ​wrote for ​Justin​.”
