Robert Earl Keen Has Been A ‘Lifelong Fan’ of Classical Music

You might think that to write and perform country music an artist would need to be up on the current trends within the genre. You might even assume they would have to listen to country music on the radio. Well, Robert Earl Keen has blown up those ideas. Not only does he not listen to country music on the radio, he doesn’t listen to most genres of music.


When we asked Keen what he loves on country radio he didn’t quite know what to say because he exclusively listens to classical music.

“Bach, Mozart, Prokofiev – I love classical music,” he said after apologizing for not knowing what was happening on country radio. It’s not that he dislikes anything happening in the country industry, he just loves orchestral music.

“I’ve been a lifelong [classical music fan]. My first musical experiences were all classical music experiences.”

Keen’s love for the genre extends to his philanthropic work. He holds a benefit for the Hill Country Youth Orchestra in Kerrville, TX, a tuition-free orchestra program that encourages and nurtures musical talent in the Texas Hill Country.

To RaeLynn, Showing Up To Support Other Females is Just Like Going To Church

Fresh off of hosting CMT’s Next Women of Country on Tuesday morning (Nov. 8), Raelynn headed over to the BMI songwriters awards that evening to continue spreading the word about females in country music.

One Country‘s Kelly Sutton caught up with the “Love Triangle” singer and asked about the camaraderie of the females in country music.

“It’s just like going to church—you go every week, you know you love the Lord, but to be able to be around the people that believe in the same thing that you do is awesome. We need to have these events every year to be able to honor each other and love each other and support each other. It’s not about if it needs to happen or not, it’s just about the community of it and I think it’s really important.”

A big supporter of females herself, the Texas native was once shown that support from one of the biggest females in country music, Miranda Lambert, who not only championed the Raelynn and her music, but invited to be a part of the all female lineup of her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour.

“I got mentored by one of the best, Miranda [Lambert], growing up and going on tour with her,” Raelynn said to One Country. “She’s an amazing person and to be able to have a format where they have that community is awesome.”

How’s that for girl power!

Evans then reflected what it meant to him to be a part of the BMI Awards, a night that celebrates songwriters and publishers.

“Tonight is the perfect representation of why, out of anywhere in the world, I moved here. I feel like this is a song town and tonight is a celebration of that.”
