It’s amazing it took this long for Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle to make an album together. The celebrated folkie and country legends have been mutually admiring each others’ work for years, and they finally mostly formalized the admiration in the form of a joint tour back in 2014. But it took until this year for the pair to produce an album together, titled simply Colvin & Earle, which saw its release over the summer. Both have been busy writing books in recent years, but together they’re a bit like the folk music Black Canary and country Green Arrow to make an album of the World’s Okayest songs – which is great for the children of their fans, who now get to pay for just one set of tickets to treat their parents out to a night on the town.
