What Do Steve Earle, Chuck Berry and Jack Kerouac Have in Common?

What do master folk/country/rock songsmith Steve Earle, rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry and the author of the 1950s literary classic  On the Road have in common?

 Well, actually, it’s a song from Steve Earle’s current CD The Low Highway on New West Records.

In “Down the Road Pt. 2”     Mr. Earle adds his own spin to a famous Chuck Berry lyric (“Roll over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news …..) and references “beat” legend Kerouac and folk icon Guthrie  ….  all in one line!

“Roll over Kerouac and give Woody Guthrie the news ….”
