Justin Townes Earle’s candid commentary
‘Nothing’s Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now’
The story behind Justin Townes Earle’s new album starts and ends with its title. “Nothing’s Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now’’ is a candid commentary on his bad behavior in 2010 that led to a public meltdown and another trip to rehab. These new songs, which move away from raucous country and more toward mellow Memphis soul, acknowledge that and sound like the work of an artist with his tail between his legs.
