Outlaw country survivor Steve Earle, who has been expanding the boundaries of country music since his 1986 debut, Guitar Town, is on tour and set to play Orlando next week as one of a trio of Florida dates. Earle is touring behind a new covers album that pays homage to legendary country music cult figure Guy Clark, GUY. It's a sequel of sorts to Earle's memorial to Townes Van Zandt (a close friend of Clark's) TOWNES and a touching tribute to Clark, a master songwriter who rarely gets his due.

Steve Earle & the Dukes get up close and personal at the Plaza Live on Friday, June 7, at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
