Robert Earl Keen has been writing songs since the late 1970s, when he was an English major at Texas A&M University, and has been performing them live for almost as long. We recently caught up with Keen to talk about his life, his songs, an upcoming tour with college buddy and fellow Texan Lyle Lovett, and training his new dog, Cormac.

Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett’s tour kicks off in October.
