It's difficult to imagine something Steve Earle hasn't done yet, but, believe it or not, until recently, the Texas-raised singer, songwriter, performer, actor, writer and teacher had yet to sing the blues. On his new LP, Earle pays overdue tribute to those who preceded and inspired him, and like the subject of the Robert Johnson song for which Terraplane takes its name, he gets around, running into an array of styles across the wide vista of the blues. Though he recorded the album Lightnin' Hopkins-style with his full band, The Dukes, Steve Earle made like Mance Lipscomb and performed a handful of solo shows to promote the new record upon its release, including a stop at the KEXP studio where he donned the mantle of "King of the Blues".
