The series finale for FX's Justified was breathtaking in many ways...No spoilers here, but through the seasons one song has been a leitmotif: a dark composition by Kentucky-born singer-songwriter Darrell Scott (now based in Nashville) titled, "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive."   It's an amazing song that captured and complemented the essence of this extraordinary series based on the writings of the late Elmore Leonard, who was involved in the creative process until his death in 2013.
