'Copperhead Road' is the third studio album by Steve Earle, released in 1988. The title song 'Copperhead Road' tells of a Vietnam War veteran, scion of a rural moonshine bootlegging clan, who returns home to Johnson County, Tennessee and decides instead to enter the marijuana business, which is shown by the line 'I'll take the seed from Colombia and Mexico'. On the U.S. Billboard Top Country Albums it reached No.7. Airplay on rock radio stations drove the title track into Billboard's Album Rock Top Ten chart.
