[AMERICANA CULT LEGEND] Joe Ely is perhaps best known as a member of alt-country supergroup the Flatlanders, but a supergroup doesn't earn that tag unless its individual members bring an impressive pedigree into the band format. Long before the Flatlanders earned their reputation in the early ’90s, Ely was already one of the greatest songwriters ever to come out of Texas. Blessed with a voice that required little effort to sound lonesome and world weary, the Amarillo-born, Lubbock-raised artist has inspired everyone from Bruce Springsteen and the Chieftains to the Clash (whom he once toured with) to plumb deeper emotional depths. But Ely doesn't lean on heartache alone: He called his last album Satisfied at Last, and while the title rings sardonic, the 66-year-old singer sounds, if not completely satisfied, at least at peace with his lot in life.
