From the Artist
"I would love to have been one of the great singers in the world -- like Vince Gill or someone like that -- even if it was just for one hour," says Robert Earl Keen. "But I really feel like my gift is writing songs. That's just there and it's always been there. I don't know why, but I always have stories -- they don't all have to be true, just good. If I could put a subtitle on my best songs, it would be `based on a good story.'"
"You can tell when you play for people who never heard of you,"... "But winning people over - that's at the goal at the heart of every great performer. You try to win people over."
