Geek FM: Robert Earl Keen

Robert Earl Keen is a Texas original. His laconic, plaintive delivery of country music is as distinctive as his songwriting prowess. According to Allmusic.com he “mixes Texas twang, folk wit, and rock muscle.” I love what he does and how he does it.

He’s written too many songs for me to enumerate here. But here are a couple of samples. “Something That I Do” has become a theme song of mine. And “Shades of Gray” has been covered many times and is just a great song. Enjoy!

About Shedrick

I am a professional librarian and a part-time writer that's working to do that the other way around. I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.
