Life is unpredictable. That’s maybe the lesson learned from Austin native, now Colorado resident Chris Roberts.

Far Away In Another Town, Steve Earle & the Dukes (from the New West Records Release J.T.) Chances are you might already be aware of the story behind J.T., Steve Earle’s tribute to his late son Justin Townes Earle.
