Artists Pay Tribute to the Late Justin Townes Earle
Justin Townes Earle sadly passed away yesterday (August 23) at the age of 38, and tributes to the singer-songwriter have been pouring in on social media overnight.

"I'm saddened to hear that we have lost Justin Townes Earle and at such a young age," Billy Bragg wrote on Twitter. "I worked with him last year and found him to be a brilliant songwriter and generous soul. My thoughts go out to his family and friends."

Frank Turner recalled that he and Earle "played a handful of shows together over the years. He was a week younger than me but always felt like an older soul. A kind guy and a wonderful songwriter."

The Hold Steady's Craig Finn wrote that it was "Always a pleasure playing shows with JTE and running into him over the years. Loved his songs." Margo Price, meanwhile, wrote that Earle "was always kind...and he's gone too soon," while Jason Isbell shared that Earle had purchased the suit he got married in.
