Beloved Texas singer-songwriter Robert Earl Keen has announced a pair of shows at one of the Lone Star State’s best-known venues. On June 12th and 13th, Keen will perform at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, marking one of the first indoor concerts since the COVID-19 pandemic forced stay-at-home orders.
Texan Robert Earl Keen has maintained a rare consistency as a performer and songwriter for over three decades. His material has been recorded by George Strait, the Dixie Chicks and others, but he is still best known as an artist who can bring a room to a hushed silence with just his voice and guitar. The song that many of his followers might vote their favorite is his upbeat homecoming anthem, “Feelin’ Good Again.”
The Internet abounds with theories about what the lyric really means, so American Songwriter asked the author himself what was on his mind when he penned this classic.

“Creativity begets beauty,” wrote Americana singer-songwriter Robert Earl Keen in a recent email to us.
Keen should know. He’s now 30 years and 19 albums into a career that grew from a self-funded and -produced debut album into an acclaimed run of songwriting that’s begotten plenty of beauty. Of course, no one’s story goes as planned.
