Country star Steve Earle is set to become the latest celebrity to get literary - he will release his first novel in May (11).
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will publish the Guitar Town singer's new book I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive, which will hit stores a month after his new album of the same name.
Earle's novel "imagines the troubled life of Doc Ebersole as he is haunted by the ghost of his former patient and friend, Hank Williams".
