“I’ve been down the thousand trails”

Steve Earle with Lucinda Williams – “You’re Still Standing There” from I Feel Alright (1996)

Let’s continue with the country. Steve Earle fits the country outlaw image: arrested in Nashville for crack possession, he spent a few years locked up and came back to put a record almost every year for the past ten years. This song skirts the edge of slick boring Gin Blossoms-y roots rock, but the vocal delivery–especially Lucinda’s in the second verse–really sells it. Such a sweet song.
