    Steve Earle earned an Emmy Award Nomination for his song, "This City" in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics Category. The new song closed the season finale of HBO's critically acclaimed series Treme. Produced by T Bone Burnett and featuring arrangements by Allen Toussaint, "This City" was written specifically for the series. The series title refers to one of New Orleans' oldest neighborhoods and a historically important source of music and culture.

    Additionally, Earle played a recurring character, Harley, a street musician, in three episodes of the series. When speaking about the brand new song, Steve Earle stated, "David Simon came on the set one day and asked me to write a song that my character would have written in ‘05. The next morning I woke up and wrote it."

    Steve Earle has also announced summer tour dates with Electric Hot Tuna in addition to multiple nights, which begin this evening, in his adoptive hometown of New York City at the City Winery. Each night will feature his wife, critically acclaimed singer songwriter Allison Moorer and special guests. Among those announced are Roseanne Cash, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Greg Trooper, and Steve Earle's son, the critically acclaimed singer songwriter, Justin Townes Earle.
