    Steve Earle returned to Texas to make So You Wannabe an Outlaw, the country crooner’s first record ever to be made in his home state. He spent 33 years in Nashville and the last decade in New York City, but Austin and hit roots called him back. The result, an LP full of the kind of outlaw country we’ve come to expect from one of the genre’s most authentic voices.

    He’s no stranger to Texas and knows the Austin scene, but he found it was the right time to finally return. But in order to make the record right, he knew he needed to change things up, which meant, for him, trying his hand at co-writing, and bringing WIllie Nelson as well as Miranda Lambert into the fold.

    ARTISTdirect’s Christopher Friedmann caught up with Earle to discuss this roots of outlaw country, to find out what was in Texas he couldn't get anywhere else, and to learn what moments have touched him over the course of his storied career.
