It’s not always easy to sum up a career, let alone a life’s ambition, so simply, but those ten words from Robert Earl Keen’s calling-card anthem just about do it. 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. Now three-decades on from the release of his debut album, with well over a dozen other records to his name, thousands of shows under his belt and still no end in sight to the road ahead, Keen remains as committed to and inspired by his muse as ever. From his humble beginnings on the Texas folk scene, he’s blazed a peer, critic, and fan-lauded trail that’s earned him living-legend (not to mention pioneer) status in the Americana music world. And though the Houston native has never worn his Texas heart on his sleeve, he’s long been regarded as one of the Lone Star State’s finest singer-songwriters. Keen was inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame and in 2000 he headlined a millennial New Year’s Eve celebration in Austin that drew an estimated 200,000 people!!
