MAGNET Television: Q&A With Steve Earle

Ghosts Of West Virginia (New West) is the 20th studio album from two-time MAGNET cover star Steve Earle. Like many of his best LPs, it has a theme, in this case, the coal-mine explosion that killed 29 workers a decade ago in the Mountain State. Seven of its 10 songs were written for and performed in Coal Country, a play about the disaster that was staged at NYC’s Public Theater and that earned Earle a Drama Desk Award nomination.
