Steve began learning guitar when he was 11, and soon after set his sights on a career in music. His idol was Townes Van Zandt, and at the age of 14, he ran away from home to search for him. Steve caught up with Van Zandt two years later in Houston, Texas.
Steve’s first album was out in 1986, and since then he has released 15 studio albums and earned three Grammy awards.
Many of his songs have been recorded by other artists, including Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Travis Tritt.
Steve has also appeared in film and on television, he has written a novel, a play and a book of short stories.
