Robert Earl Keen, the poet laureate of Texas Country and one half of the Stryker Brothers duo, has announced a 2019 springtime tour that will find the songwriter playing 20 dates.

Keen, who rounded off 2018 with his annual Christmas tour and a return visit to George Strait’s Las Vegas residency with old pal Lyle Lovett, entered the new year with an induction into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame. Come March 17th, he’ll get back to what he does best, opening his spring schedule with an appearance at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo in Houston. Heading north to New York from there, Keen will work his way back down the East Coast for four weeks before wrapping up the new leg of shows at Varsity Theatre in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on April 20th.

The first recipient of the BMI Troubadour Award recently teamed up with Randy Rogers for the Stryker Brothers project, an ambitious album (Burn Band) and alter-ego stunt that found the musicians inhabiting the roles of two deceased prisoners.

“My one overriding thought, especially on my part, was, ‘They’re gonna know my voice that quick. It won’t take two seconds,” Keen told Rolling Stone Country. “I denied it as much as possible. I did get drunk a couple times and tell a few friends, hoping they wouldn’t say anything. They didn’t say anything, as far as I know.”
