Robert Earl Keen
Among the large contingent of talented songwriters who emerged in Texas in the 1980s and Nineties, Robert Earl Keen struck an unusual balance between sensitive story-portraits and raucous barroom fun. These two song types in Keen’s output were unified by a mordant sense of humor that strongly influenced the early practitioners of what would become known as alternative country music. Some people take up a life of playing music with the goal of someday reaching a destination of fame and fortune; but from the get-go, Keen just wanted to write and sing his own songs, and to keep writing and singing them for as long as possible.
