Live review: Steve Earle @ the Ogden Theatre

Steve Earle deserves to be happy. The 56-year-old troubadour with a troubled past including a heroin problem, seven failed marriages and jail time on drug and firearms charges is, as he explained to the Ogden crowd on Friday night, “the king of second chances." Despite his colorfully rugged personal history, Earle is a prolific songwriter, a three-time Grammy winner, a social activist and a hard working, ever-touring live performer.
