Washington Square Serenade, Earle’s 12th album, was written as a love letter to New York City, which the country singer has called home for the past three years.

In February, the album was honored by the Recording Academy with a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk/Americana Album. The album was also nominated for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals (with Moorer) and earned the top spot on novelist Stephen King’s list of the best albums of 2007 for Entertainment Weekly.

When Earle’s not taking to the stage around the world, he hosts “The Steve Earle Show: Hardcore Troubadour Radio” on Outlaw Country for SIRIUS Satellite Radio.
