Robert Earl Keen Announces Annual Christmas Show

Get TICKETS Here!

Robert Earl Keen announced the launch of his eighth annual Christmas show and as always he’s planned a stop at the Ryman on 12/29.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Keen’s theme for this year’s tour is COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS: Lunar Tunes & Looney Times. He and his band will pay homage to the space race and all things celestial in an out-of-this-world evening of family holiday fun. “This show will turn on the psychedelactic jukebox and light up the tree of tranquility!” Keen adds. “The countdown begins now!” In T-minus 122 days and counting, concertgoers will blast off with Keen’s classic “Merry Christmas from the Family,” fan favorites, and unearthly covers from his band members. Ground Control reminds fans to grab their tickets before this lunar expedition sells out.

Opening the tour is Austin-based, swamp-pop-soul supergroup Shinyribs.

Keen’s Christmas show has been described as part comedy, part variety show. “Merry Christmas from the Family” first appeared on Keen’s 1994 album, Gringo Honeymoon. University of Texas Press released Keen’s companion book, also titled Merry Christmas from the Family, in 2005.
