Who's ready for a great night of music? It's been awhile since Robert Earl Keen has been in town and even longer for Lyle Lovett . . . like never? Both will be performing at the Perot Theatre on Friday, November 4.
The July 2015 issue of Texas Monthly Magazine hits newsstands Monday, with two very talented Texans on the front cover - Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett. This month's cover story is dedicated to "secrets behind some of your favorite Texas songs," and includes the back story of songs written by Willie Nelson, Selena, Kacey Musgraves and the Dixie Chicks.
Robert Earl Keen has a new song out titled "The Road Goes On and On", and it is most definitely aimed at Toby Keith. Lots of people believe that Toby Keith's tune "Bullets In The Gun" sounds VERY similar to Keen's Classic "The Road Goes On Forever".
Of course I love all of the traditional Christmas songs, but I think one of the best things about the country music genre is all of the original country Christmas songs. This is one of my favorites, even though it's not really new, Robert Earl Keen wrote this one back in 1994 for the "Gringo Honeymoon" album.
