Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle have been connected for over three decades: first as mutual admirers, then sharing stages for many years (including ours at Holiday Cheer for FUV in 2012), and eventually by becoming tourmates.

That shared show experience has now led to their new album as a duo, Colvin & Earle, which they recorded with longtime friend and collaborator Buddy Miller. On the eve of releasing this long-overdue debut, these legendary, Grammy-winning artists (not to mention authors and, in Steve’s case, actor and playwright) came to Studio A. They played some of their songs for an audience of lucky WFUV Members and told us a bit about their first foray into co-writing.
