Earle postpones tour, enters rehab after arrest
Question of the Day
NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Justin Townes Earle says he is suspending his tour and is entering a rehabilitation facility.
Earle’s publicist confirmed the statement on the singer’s website Thursday. The move comes after the 2009 Americana Music Association new/emerging artist winner was arrested Sept. 16 in Indianapolis following a show.
Authorities charged Earle with battery, public intoxication and resisting law enforcement. He is accused of doing $200 damage to his dressing room, then assaulting the club’s owner. He has a court date Oct. 19.
The New York-based artist has postponed U.S. and British dates in support of his new album, “Harlem River Blues,” through Nov. 14.
Earle says in a statement that he is “committed” to confronting his problems with addiction and denies published descriptions of the altercation. He is the son of Grammy-winning country artist Steve Earle.
