One of Fort Worth’s favorite holiday traditions is back! Robert Earl Keen returns for his Eve of New Year’s Eve concert at Bass Hall this holiday season, with special guest opener, singer-songwriter Brent Cobb . Ring in the new year with an evening of Americana hits and holiday tunes featuring REK’s famous Bluegrass flare.
A Houston native, Robert Earl Keen has for three decades been regarded as one of the Lone Star State's finest true singer-songwriters. The first Americana artist to be featured on the Americana Music Chart, Keen was weaned on classic rock and Willie Nelson records. By the time he entered Texas A&M University, he was teaching himself guitar playing Bluegrass and setting his poetic musings to song. Now with 21 records to his name, a band of stellar musicians, and thousands of shows under his belt, there is no end in sight to the road ahead. In July of 2021, POLLSTAR ranked Keen on its Top 20 Global Concert Tours, proof that he has blazed a peer, critic, and fan-lauded trail that's earned him living-legend and pioneer status in the Americana music world. REK is a 2018 Texas A&M Distinguished Alumni Award recipient, and a member of Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Hall of Fame and The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame. He is also a supporter of music education, having raised more than $1,000,000 with his annual benefit concert for the Hill Country Youth Orchestra in Kerrville.
Originally from Georgia, Brent Cobb has released four studio albums and one EP to date. His album Shine on Rainy Day earned him a 2018 Grammy Award nomination for Best Americana Album. Brent has worked with a variety of country music artists, writing songs for Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Texas native Miranda Lambert, The Oak Ridge Boys and many others.
Effective November 1, 2021, all patrons ages 12 and older will be required to show either proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or voluntarily provide proof of vaccination, and photo identification. For more information on this new entry requirement, please click here.
