Feature album - Copperhead Road

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:45 pm on 3 July 2015

Our feature album is the third studio album by Steve Earle, released in 1988. The album is often referred to as Earle's first "rock record"; Earle himself calls it the world's first blend of heavy metal and bluegrass, and the January 26, 1989 review of the album by Rolling Stone suggested that the style be called "power twang".
