Video Premiere: Justin Townes Earle - "Slippin' and Slidin'"

June 28, 2011  |  1:30pm

Since 2007, Justin Townes Earle has become an Americana darling, combining old-school country and modern acoustic folk. He earned critical acclaim last year with his record Harlem River Blues, which the Americana Music Association nominated for both “Album of the Year” and “Song of the Year.”

Now, Earle is ready to debut the first official music video from Harlem River Blues. The single “Slippin’ and Slidin’,” shot and directed by Joshua Black Wilkins, shows an intimate look at the musician’s adopted hometown of New York City. Check out the video below
