Robert Earl Keen in the Abbey Bar at Appalachian Brewing Company
The road goes on forever and the party never ends…
“I would love to have been one of the great singers in the world — like Vince Gill or someone like that — even if it was just for one hour,” says Robert Earl Keen. “But I really feel like my gift is writing songs. That’s just there and it’s always been there. I don’t know why, but I always have stories — they don’t all have to be true, just good. If I could put a subtitle on my best songs, it would be ‘based on a good story.’”With his latest Lost Highway album, The Rose Hotel (which hit #1 on the Americana charts), Keen re-confirms his place among the Lone Star State’s great storytellers, capable of painting rich, poignant landscapes worthy of Cormac McCarthy and spinning satirical yarns that’d do Kinky Friedman proud.
