In a year that marks the tenth anniversary of his debut, Yuma, Justin Townes Earle is hardly resting on his laurels. In fact, album number seven, Kids In The Street, marks a turning point in Earle's career: a colleciton of songs that's loaded with firsts.

Earle returned to Studio A armed with some fantastic new songs, and he talked to us about some of those firsts: fatherhood, working with a producer, recording outside of Nashville, sobriety, and moving to the Pacific Northwest.
