Copperhead Road has become an anthem for many Australians, and it was certainly the most anticipated song of Steve Earle’s performance on Sunday.
Many that were waiting to hear his most famous song soon found themselves immersed in Earle’s entire set, with patrons of all ages able to appreciate his soulful sounds.
He charmed the audience with his smile and laid-back nature.
Earle’s husky, folk voice attracted the attention of festival patrons with tunes including The Low Highway and Down The Road.
The songs were brought to life with the sounds of guitar, drums and violin captured by Earle and his band.
Their sound is an icon on the country and blues scene, with Earle’s debut record Guitar Town in 1986 a number one hit.
The US artist has since released 14 records and is one of the most famed acts of his time.
Local woman Telysa Towler said Earle was ‘‘even better live than expected’’.
‘‘I originally wanted to hear Copperhead Road but I went and stayed for the whole set. I had a ball,’’ she said.
