"The road goes on forever..." -- It's not always easy to sum up a career -- let alone a life's ambition -- so succinctly, but those five words from ROBERT EARL KEEN's calling-card anthem just about do it.

Now three-decades on from the release of his debut album, Keen remains as committed to and inspired by his muse as ever. And as for accruing recognition, well, he's done alright. From his humble beginnings on the Texas folk scene, he's blazed a peer, critic, and fan-lauded trail that's earned him living-legend (not to mention pioneer) status in the Americana music world. And though the Houston native has never worn his Texas heart on his sleeve, he's long been regarded as one of the Lone Star State's finest true singer-songwriters. He was still a relative unknown in 1989 when his third studio album, ‘West Textures,’ was released, especially on the triple bill he shared at the time touring with legends Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark. Once Joe Ely recorded Keen’s 1993 album, ‘Love and Danger,’ the secret was out making Keen a Texas household name.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of ROBERT EARL KEEN's iconic album, ‘A Bigger Piece of Sky,’ Keen and Dualtone will be releasing it on vinyl for the first time. "A Bigger Piece of Sky was the most thrilling, hair-pulling, penny-pinching, cliff-hanging, scariest record I've ever made," says Keen. "I love every song on BPS."
