Episode 213: Rarely do artists retire in their prime, but that’s what Texas songwriter Robert Earl Keen is doing. In January, he announced to the surprise of his many fans that he’d play 2022 into September and then wrap up his road career with a final show in Helotes TX, a favorite venue. He’s 66 years old and very much in fighting shape. But he’s got other things he wants to do. He’s planning to write songs, get more focused on his excellent podcast and pursue what he feels like. He’s not ruling out shows in the future, but he sounds pretty determined in the interview ahead not to return to a tour bus. Also, a visit with Kentucky indie roots rocker S.G. Goodman.
