Steve Earle: “I’m basically a folk singer, and that job is musicology to a certain extent”

There’s a pretty interesting interview with Steve Earle linked below.

Mother Jones: Whenever I hear you speak about music, history, or anything, really, I’m always amazed by your encyclopedic recall.

Steve Earle: It’s just my job. I’m basically a folk singer, and that job is musicology to a certain extent. There is an academic quality to it—which is one of the things that people criticize.
