Remembering Justin Townes Earle

Awarding-winning musician Justin Townes Earle is dead at 38. His death was announced on his Facebook page.

He was the son of Steve Earle and named after the legendary songwriter Townes Van Zandt. Earle had a history of drug and alcohol addiction, as his father and Van Zandt did. We remember him by hearing some audio from a 2010 Here & Now interview.
