Co-written by Keith and producer Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Shania Twain), Get Your Redneck On includes the lines:
Muddy bank between my toes
Kicking back while the river flows
Wherever the hell it goes
I don't really care to know
I just wanna hear a country song
And get my redneck on
Keith is currently on her first radio tour in support of the song. Keith gained some attention from Daddy Dance With Me,"which she co-wrote as a surprise for her father Toby Keith and debuted at her own wedding.

Whiskey & Lace
Krystal Keith has a tremendous amount to overcome. First and overwhelmingly foremost is her name. It so happens that her father is Toby Keith, who also owns her record label. The first obvious question is whether Keith would get a record contact if not for her last name. The answer is not entirely clear.
Keith fares best when she adds a bit of a bluesy feel to the songs, particularly Can't Buy You Money, although there are a lot of other singers (including her father), who would do a far better job on it. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Laws of Gravity
The Infamous Stringdusters have always been difficult to categorize. That's part of their charm. Part traditional bluegrass (leaning on sound bluegrass instrumentation, namely guitar, Dobro, banjo, fiddle and standup bass), part jam band (extended sets of songs in their live shows in which one song triggers another), and wholly original with a signature sound and energy that goes on without cease. »»»
