Justin Townes Earle Gets Hitched
“It was kind of an immediate thing,” Earle explained to The Globe. “We met four months before we spent one week together in Texas and two weeks together in Salt Lake. We just decided to do it because our families tend to complicate our lives, and we thought this is our day and has nothing to do with anybody else and we shouldn’t have to run around on our wedding day and take care of people, which is exactly what would have happened. I believe it’s not about the other people. I think a lot of women want weddings .”‰.”‰. but it gets completely out of control. People are spending ridiculous amounts of money on weddings. Go buy a house. Take a vacation.”
Just like Justin Townes Earle, his wife is a tall one that likes tattoos. “My wife is pretty well ‘sleeved’ in the right arm and has pieced together tattoos diagonal across her body. When she was 11, she was the national US water-skiing champion and then she did freestyle half-pipe snowboarding when she was a teenager and then started racing Super-G. Her form is absolutely stunning. Now she’s a gyrotonics teacher so she’s 6’3’’ with an amazing body and those tattoos. And I’m 6’4”.”
Justin is between albums after finishing up a five contract stint with Bloodshot Records, and has been having trouble with his new label Communion Records who is insisting he turn in 30 songs to them before they will pay for studio time so the label can “help” him make the record. “I have not, and never will write 30 songs in a year,” Justin insists. “That isn’t art it’s vomit. I write a record. Quality matters not quantity!”
No name has been divulged yet on the new Mrs. Townes Earle.

I saw JTE play at the very end of October and he said he was married, I didn’t realize it was otherwise unknown or such a current event. Congrats to him and her.
January 5, 2014 @ 8:45 pm
Not sure it is a current event, but didn’t see the news anywhere else.
January 5, 2014 @ 9:34 pm
I just mean current event in that it reportedly happened in mid October and I saw him in late October. Funny that the Boston Globe had something about it.

Did you hear that? T’was the sound of my heart breaking!

Her name is Jenn Marie Earle (nee Maynard). She owns a yoga studio in Salt Lake City. I went to High School with her and she’s a real sweetheart. So glad to see the 2 of them happy. I think her healthy attitude to life will keep him grounded with all his touring.

Congratulations and take care of each other.
Just recently started listening to JTE and now I own all of his CD’s. Great voice and outstanding musician. My mom passed away on Feb. 14/2015 and honestly listening to the words and music have helped me feel better.

I’d rather be a race horse than anything else. I’m tough, fast, tall, strong and graceful.

🙂 thank you Dad. I found one of the few men with integrity, talented and immense love.
June 2, 2014 @ 5:32 pm
“Quality not quantity” is right! So glad to hear he’s not allowing the music machine to chew him up. I just don’t understand how they’re his “new label”, and he didn’t know they were vomit producers. What was wrong with Bloodshot?

Read my comment below. It was communion records.. Not bloodshot

July 9, 2014 @ 8:31 pm
Thank you for the congratulations everyone! We are very happy, and couldn’t be more grateful to find one another in this huge world.
Also, there was nothing wrong with Bloodshot records, it was Communion Records that screwed him over. He has a great relationship with the folks at bloodshot.

I wish only the best!! See you in September!! 😉
