Rolling Stone hails singer/songwriter Robert Earl Keen as "a writer with a novelist's eye for character and narrative detail comparable to forerunners like John Prine, Guy Clark, and Kris Kristofferson." In The Road Goes on Forever and the Music Never Ends, the master storyteller gives us fascinating glimpses into his own story through songs, personal memorabilia, and photographs that span his career from his student days at Texas A&M University to a recent concert at Austin's legendary Stubb's Bar-B-Que.
The Road Goes on Forever and the Music Never Ends contains the lyrics for twenty-four of Keen's favorite songs, accompanied by one-liners that offer tantalizing hints at the motivations behind the songs ("Corpus Christi Bay" ? "True? Yes, unfortunately.") Accompanying the lyrics is a wealth of material from Keen's personal archive?newspaper clippings, concert posters, and programs; journal entries and letters that show him in the process of everything from self-improvement ("Do something really nice for my sister") to raising money to record an album; and photos by and of family, friends, and fans.
A very personal, beautifully designed songbook, scrapbook, and photo album, The Road Goes on Forever and the Music Never Ends is the essential book for everyone who loves the music of Robert Earl Keen.
Also packaged in the book is a CD with printable sheet music for all twenty-four songs, which come from Keen's critically acclaimed albums Walking Distance, Gringo Honeymoon, What I Really Mean, A Bigger Piece of Sky, Farm Fresh Onions, Gravitational Forces, and Picnic.
