USA Today: They're all Americana, All Grammy Worthy

With the announcement that the Grammy's have added a new Americana-album Grammy, USA Today published an article today that gives the run down on emerging artists that could be in the running for a possible Grammy nomination.
Here's what they have to say:

Justin Townes Earle, Midnight at the Movies The sound: Sometimes folk, sometimes acoustic blues, sometimes ragtime.
Sample tracks:Mama's Eyes, Someday I'll Be Forgiven for This
Back story: The son of two-time Grammy winner Steve Earle was named for the legendary Townes Van Zandt and has shared both men's appetite for self-destruction. Midnight is his second solo

Leg up: Since Earle cleaned up his act, his talent for spare, simple songwriting has drawn Hank Williams comparisons.
