Also announced today is a fantastic group of fifteen artists who will open for Justin on his mammoth Australian tour. They are the Duncan Phillips Band, Lachlan Bryan and The  Wildes, Georgia State Line, Fraser A. Gorman, Pete Cornelius & band, Lachlan Edwards, The Morrisons, Diamond Duck, Ricky Albeck and the Belair Line Band, Kings & Queens, Little Lord Street Band,  Emily Lubitz (Tinpan Orange), Jeremiah Johnson, Ruby Gilbert and James Ellis & The Jealous Guys.

Since JTE’s last return down under in 2017 he got married, became a father and released his seventh and eighth full-length albums, 2017’s Kids In the Street and the brand new The Saint of Lost Causes that saw him reunited with longtime producer Adam Bednarik in Nashville.

Earle’s fierce fidelity to his creative muse has been a consistent thread throughout his young life. Born in Nashville on January 4th, 1982, he grew up as the son of country-rock iconoclast Steve Earle, who gave him his middle name in honour of his mentor, the brilliant songwriter Townes Van Zandt. Justin quickly came into his own as a songwriter and performer, displaying a natural talent for deeply revealing lyrics that reflected his often-harsh life experiences, and a musical approach that effortlessly integrated elements of blues, folk, and country. His 2007 debut EP Yuma set the stage for a steady stream of acclaimed albums.
