Steve Earle: Songwriter, Author, & Activist Fairview, Tennessee
"We stick to a lot of really archaic ideas based on our Southernness. We allow our Southernness to limit us. I think that thinking of yourself as a Southern writer or a 'Southern' anything is limiting. I think it's a trap, especially when you are talking about the way people think and the way they write."
