It’s not always easy to sum up a career — let alone a life’s ambition — so succinctly, but those words from Robert Earl Keen’s calling-card anthem just about do it.
Robert Earl Keen has been heralded as one of Texas’ most popular and consistently acclaimed musical ambassadors. Inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2012, Keen has recorded 18 full-length albums for both independent and major record labels, and his songs have also been covered by artists from the country, folk and Texas country music scenes (including George Strait, Joe Ely, Lyle Lovett, The Highwaymen, Nanci Griffith, and the Dixie Chicks).
His albums and live performances span musical styles from folk, country, bluegrass to rock, yet he is most commonly affiliated with the Americana movements and has toured extensively both nationally and internationally throughout his career.
