The Ponte Vedra Concert Hal, in partnership with Flying Saucer Presents, welcomes Steve Earle and the Dukes in a concert to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Earle's iconic album, Copperhead Road. The concert will take place beginning at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 19, 2018, and will include special guest The Mastersons.
Steve Earle and his band The Dukes are touring to mark the 30th anniversary of the release of Earle's third studio album, Copperhead Road. This album is often referred to as Earle's first "rock record," and was included by Time Magazine in their Critics Choice of the Year upon its release. Rolling Stone listed it as one of "50 Country Albums Every Rock Fan Should Own."
Steve Earle began his music career as a songwriter, with many of his songs recorded by industry legends like Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. In the mid-eighties, Earle released Guitar Town, his debut album which became the #1 album on the Country charts. His sound evolved over the next few decades as he dabbled in country, rock’n’roll, and folk. His sixteenth studio album, Terraplan, was released this year. With strong influences from the sounds and rhythms of the blues, Terraplan remains at the # 1 spot on the Blues and Americana charts. Earle’s hit singles include “What’ll You Do About Me” and “A Little Bit in Love.”
Austin-based Chris Masterson (vocals and guitar)and Eleanor Whitmore (vocals, violin, and guitar) are a husband-and-wife duo with a winning combination of songcraft and charm. Their 2012 debut album, Birds Fly South, was lauded by critics. Their best known single is “One More Word.”
