The Low Highway is the follow up to 2011’s Grammy-nominated album I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive and is the first billed as ‘Steve Earle & The Dukes (And Duchesses).’ It features his live band, The Dukes, and is Steve’s 15th studio album since his 1986 debut project, Guitar Town.
The Low Highway opens with the title track and closes with the reflective “Remember Me.” The project is Steve’s ‘road record’ as he explains in the album liner notes.
“I’ve been on every interstate highway in the lower forty-eight states by now and I never get tired of the view,” he writes. “I’ve seen a pretty good chunk of the world and my well-worn passport is one of my most prized possessions, but for me, there’s still nothing like the first night of a North American tour; everybody, band and crew, crowded up in the front lounge, eating Nashville hot chicken and Betty Herbert’s homemade pimento cheese, swapping the same tired old war stories half shouted over the rattle and hum of the highway. And I’m always the last one to holler good night to Charlie Quick, the driver, and climb in my bunk because to me it feels like Christmas Eve long ago when I still believed in Santa Claus. God I love this.”
