Hardcore troubadour Steve Earle (pictured) wields his ukulele along with famed rock journalist Sylvie Simmons, singer/songwriter Chuck Prophet, Tampa's own Ronny Elliott, and others in a virtual Million Ukulele March in support of Obama. Huh? Read more about the online rally in my previous post.
"Steve Earle just signed up [this past Saturday]," Simmons told me. "I saw him do a gig in a little barn on the outskirts of San Francisco, a private party, and he posed with a uke for a picture. [Earle] told me he'd already voted for Obama in Nashville since he's going to be in Australia on election day."
