iTunes Editors’ Notes

The Center for Texas Music History at Texas State University assembled more than two dozen Texas-based acts to pay tribute to one of its own leading songwriters, Robert Earl Keen, during 2008's annual Musicfest in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. With Keen finishing out the night with a concise five song set, including a new cut, "Goodbye Cleveland," and his best-known track, the stirring "Road Goes On Forever," the tribute comes full circle. However, the lead-up makes a strong case for Keen's universal songwriting appeal and spotlights impressive Texas talent, as Austin's Reckless Kelly easily float through "Think It Over One Time" and the ominous romantic hangover of "Lynville Train." Roger Creager confidently delivers the amenable "I Would Change My Life." Max Stalling finds the small-town joy at the heart of "No Kinda Dancer." Doug Moreland does the same for "Daddy Had a Buick." The effect is two-fold. These mostly bare-bones acoustic interpretations should pique your curiosity to hear Keen's own versions and to hear more of the visiting artists' own work.

Customer Reviews

Thanks!!!

An awesome tribute from a wide variety of artists who truly appreciate one man's contributions to a scene that has the best music on the planet! A great album, wished I could have been there!

Credit where it is due

Robert Earl Keen is truly one of the greatest songwriters alive, or all time for that matter, and it is nice to see how much these great artists appreciate him. This was a great idea to have a tribute concert; I only wish i could have been there. A great set of some great artists covering some great tunes. Excellent stuff. And the handful of songs featuring Keen himself at the end are the perfect "cherry on top".

Undone

This is definitely the best tribute album I've ever heard. If you're a Robert Earl Keen fan this is a must-have! Each artist truly brings something new and interesting to each song. Usually there are songs that you skip on albums, but this is one that you can enjoy the whole way through. I was there when they recorded it and the 'magic' that happened in Steamboat is captured amazingly! love it!

Biography

Genre: Country

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Among the large contingent of talented songwriters who emerged in Texas in the 1980s and '90s, Robert Earl Keen struck an unusual balance between sensitive story-portraits ("Corpus Christi Bay") and raucous barroom fun ("That Buckin' Song"). 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. Keen, the son of an oil executive father and an attorney mother, was a native...
