    Shawn Colvin, Steve Earle to Tour US in March

    Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriters Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle announce a special run of tour dates together this March: “Songs and Stories, Together Onstage,” in which they share the stage for a night of song swapping, duets, storytelling, and guitar playing. These two longtime friends and mutual admirers will share music from their extensive catalogues as well as some of their favorite songs by other classic songwriters. The tour kicks off at Carnegie Library Music Hall of Homestead outside Pittsburgh on March 18, followed by stops in Bethlehem, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Durham, Nashville, Richmond, Troy, Boston, and Philadelphia.

    Shawn Colvin’s latest album, All Fall Down, released on Nonesuch Records in 2012, is her eighth studio album and the first to be produced by her longtime friend and cohort Buddy Miller. Recorded in Nashville, it features a group of stellar musicians including Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Bill Frisell, and Jakob Dylan. The album’s release was simultaneous with the publication of her memoir, Diamond in the Rough. Both the CD and book are available to purchase in the Nonesuch Store.

    Steve Earle's 15th studio album, The Low Highway, was released in 2013 and features the Grammy-nominated song "Invisible.” Earle is recognized as an actor from his roles in the acclaimed HBO series The Wire and Treme as well as appearances on Law & Order and the Tim Blake Nelson film Leaves of Grass. He will be seen in the forthcoming feature film The World Made Straight. He is also host of The Steve Earle Show: Hardcore Troubadour Radio, on Sirius XM Radio. Earle can be heard on the 2010 Nonesuch release of David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's Here Lies Love song cycle, performing the song "A Perfect Hand."

Hey Shawn and Steve, I've got all your CD's. Both of you...Love to see you in concert! But there to far away. I live in Shreveport, La. And we have lots of places to play. Casinos- Horseshoe, Eldorodo, Sam's Town, Magaritaville. or concerts at Century or Strand Theater or Downtown. I mean we've got plenty of places for you. Please look into it....PLEASE. Love your music! Gif

We saw you at Bethlehem. Great show. Wish Steve would have done something from Jerusalem, or that you two would have done "I Remember You". Loved the show. Hope you do more.

As I'm sitting here recovering from bunion surgery, you are on the stage in my city. I didn't know you were playing Boston tonight or on tour together. Two of my favorite singer/song-writers who have struggled with addiction. Today, I finally admitted to myself I am an addict. My drug of choice, klonapin is one of my many prescribed psychiatric meds. I haven't taken any in two days. I'm going through withdrawal. I took the vicodin they gave me for my surgery. After a day, I didn't like the way I was feeling. On Monday, I see my therapist and I promise to come clean. I'll call my psychiatrist. As I sat here all day, I became aware of how fucked up my life has been. I can't find a decent job. I stopped playing guitar and writing songs. Please pray for me. Thank you.
