Steve Earle, 'This City'
"This song is so haunting, so beautiful. I think it is a classic. I think it is an anthem. I think it is one of the most moving songs that I've heard in a long time. It gets me every time I hear it," Pierce says. The Emmy-nominated track was written by Earle at David Simon's request for the series, and produced by T Bone Burnett with a horn arrangement by Allen Toussaint. It closes out Treme's first season and appears on Earle's 2011 album I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive.
