Excitement is building around this year’s Live at the Capitol Series presented by The Royal after they announced last week that Steve Earle would play June 1.

“I’m most excited about Steve Earle, and this years Live At The Capitol series, because it’ll be a huge step for Nelson’s already explosive music scene,” said Paul Hinrichs of The Royal. “It really feels like now is our time, and the calibre of musicians we’re able to bring to town these days is really exciting.”

Last year the Live at the Capitol Series included Leo Kottke and Judy Collins.

“Huge names, from every genre, are putting Nelson on their tour route,” said Hinrichs. “We are so fortunate to have people like Steve Earle come and inspire us in our own mountain town.”

Tickets for Steve Earle go on sale Friday, April 27 and are $40 plus fees. Tickets are available at the Capitol box office or at

The second Live at the Capitol artist will be announced Monday, April 30.
