THE CROWDMAKERS PODCAST HOSTED BY BILL GUERTIN WITH SPECIAL GUEST ROBERT EARL KEEN
Robert Earl Keen is an amazing multi-award winning artist, songwriter, producer and businessman who is perhaps best-known in the sports world for the song "The Road Goes On Forever", the sing-along song after every Texas A&M football game. He has written songs for George Strait, Montgomery Gentry, Lyle Lovett and many more, but as the owner and manager of a touring band, he saw everything vanish in the spring of 2020. Rather than let everyone go, however, he chose to bite the bullet and keep everyone employed. In this fascinating “show biz episode from a true music gentleman, Robert Earl shares a glimpse of what it’s been like as an independent artist and business owner in the entertainment industry, how he has kept the music alive in very creative ways, and what he sees as the future of the entertainment business going forward, including why the comeback of the vinyl record may take a little longer than anticipated.
