Country, folk and rock singer-songwriter Steve Earle came up in Nashville in the mid-1970s, where he cut his teeth as a member of Guy Clark's band. Earle wouldn't remain in Nashville for his whole life -- within the decade, in fact, he left Music City for Texas -- but his unique proximity to one of the genre's most exciting songwriting hubs has left an indelible mark on his musical style.

From writing his own masterful signature songs to penning hits for country's highest echelon of legendary performers -- and even earning a co-writer credit on one hit song without even being in the room! -- Earle's prowess as a songwriter is well-documented. Read on as we count down the Top 5 songs Earle has written.
