NASHVILLE, Tenn. - His live shows are legendary. He's one of the top-drawing, true singer-songwriters of our time. Americana music pioneer ROBERT EARL KEEN brings his 2017 tour to the The Brewster St. Ice House in Corpus Christi, TX, on Friday, February 17th. 
 
Robert Earl Keen established himself as one of the most interesting, literate and thoughtful singer/songwriters in the Americana genre. He has been inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame and has written songs for music superstars George Strait, the Dixie Chicks, The Highwaymen, Lyle Lovett, Joe Ely, Nanci Griffith among others. These days in addition to prepping for a new album release, Robert Earl Keen is showing once again that he is a trailblazer and a trendsetter. He's writing shortened and spiced up songs for music lovers with little time and therefore an abbreviated attention span. These clever works of art are no longer that 90 seconds and Keen's audiences can't get enough! Find out why!
 
Robert Earl Keen's latest release Live Dinner Reunion is the 20th anniversary of his much celebrated first 'live' album.  More than 5,000 fans came to see him and his band join forces with fellow musicians Lyle Lovett, Joe Ely, Bruce Robison, Cody Canada, Reckless Kelly, Cory Morrow and more, for a night of song and friendship. "Robert Earl Keen's show at Floore's Country Store celebrating the 20th anniversary of the quintessential No. 2 Live Dinner was the stuff of honky-tonk legend. A night that reminded us why we love live music," says Mark McKinney of Floore's Country Store. The double-disc album, Live Dinner Reunion, was released November 2016 on Dualtone, an Entertainment One company.
