Robert Earl Keen Launches 2nd Season of “Americana Podcast: The 51st State”

Robert Earl Keen had such a good time hosting the likes of Lucero, Bruce Robison, Reckless Kelly, Cody Canada and more during the 2019 debut season of his Americana Podcast: The 51st State that he has signed on for Season 2.

Over the course of his 30-year career and countless number of performances, REK has grown accustomed to standing onstage behind the mic. Americana Podcast: The 51st State gives Robert the opportunity to sit down with an artist in the Americana genre for a deep-dive interview that seeks to expand the roots, reach and definition of the genre. Each monthly episode is told from the point of view of the artists who have dedicated their lives to Americana music.

REK’s upcoming episodes in 2020 include interviews with Lori McKenna, Mandolin Orange, Jamestown Revival and more. To kick off Season 2, Robert sat down with Drew Holcomb of Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, which you can listen to here.
