Robert Earl Keen Covering Tyler Childers’ ‘Whitehouse Road’ Is Just What You Needed Today
Tyler Childers is one of country music's greatest contemporary acts. While it has been a little quiet on the Childers front the past several months, the man was nominated for a Grammy just last year.
Texas Cowboy Hall of Famer Robert Earl Keen may be our generation's best story-teller. Hearing him talk is hypnotizing, when he sings it's poetry.
You may recall that Childers and Keen toured together in 2019, a tour I refer to as The My Biggest Regret Tour -- as I should've flown, ran, swam, and walked on broken glass to make it to but didn't. Not catching one of those shows may my biggest live music regret.
Remember Keen and Childers were closing out shows singing "The Road Goes on Forever"? Well, over the weekend our friends at Galleywinter shared a wonderfully unexpected video of Robert Earl Keen covering Childers' "White House Road."
How awesome is to see a legend such as Robert Earl Keen seemingly putting a giant stamp of approval on the next generation. And make no mistake, Tyler Childers is a big part of this new generation of country music.
