Steve Earle has a different way of writing and performing songs.
He’s been a huge star over the years in the sense that his fans really love his music. He’s also had a knack for getting some really good attention every few years.
He’s back again with new music and this new song and video will have you thinking.
Invisible – Steve Earle
Steve Earle has always made the kind of music he’s wanted to make. He’s never had incredible commercial success, but you don’t make it 30 years in the music industry without having a major influence.
If you look around modern country music you’ll find fingerprints of Steve Earle everywhere. Miranda Lambert has made no bones about the way she’s listened to Steve Earle over the years.
Earle can come at you with something strong and powerful that rips through the story in a quick two minutes. He also comes at you with a song like Invisible, which makes you think. It kind of lulls along, but you can’t turn away. You listen to the story and you pay attention. That’s a real talent for getting that reaction from people.
People are going to like this song. It will get lots of play online on CMT and YouTube. The video is powerful and Steve Earle has a really strong fanbase.
The song seems to be about the homeless situation in the US and around the world. It’s something we don’t often think about, but Earle brings it into focus and does it well.
Great song. I’d be surprised if it’s a huge hit, but it’s more proof of just how good Steve Earle is.
