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.

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. »»»

Concert Review: Turnpike Troubadours leave no doubt
Turnpike Troubadours have not released an album since mid-September 2015. Don't look for any new release hitting the streets any day now either. The last time the Oklahoma-based band played Boston, they were in a pretty, 1,200-seat theatre.
So, one could have been outwardly skeptical about the band when it downsized to a venue on the outskirts... »»»

There's no more solid live bluegrass show than the Gibson Brothers. They play with great technical skill and crispness. Their harmonies are just what a brother act should be: sweet, true and never forced. Brothers Leigh and Eric Gibson surround themselves with outstanding sidemen with impeccable bluegrass cred: Jesse Brock (mandolin), Mike Barber (bass) and Clayton Campbell on fiddle.... »»»
