Robert Earl Keen will be bringing his 2015 U.S. Tour to the Banjo-B-Que at Evans Towne Center Park on May 22nd.
The park is located at 7016 Evans Town Center in Evans, Georgia.
Keen, who is a Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, will perform his biggest hits and songs from his brand new #1 selling album for two consecutive weeks, Happy Prisoner: The Bluegrass Sessions, which was rated in the top 10 Folk, Independent and Current Country albums.
Keen is revisiting his roots once again, as a true music aficionado fulfilling a longtime wish to finally pay proper tribute to his personal favorite genre of music and many of the songs and artists who still inspire him to this day on Happy Prisoner.
Keen has recorded 18 full-length albums that include different styles of country, rock, folk and bluegrass. In 2012, Robert Earl Keen was inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame and has written songs for music superstars including George Strait and Nanci Griffith. In 2015, he was the first recipient of BMI’s official Troubadour Award, which honors songwriters who have written music full of passion and untamed creativity without thinking of ratings and topping charts.
