Robert Earl Keen will launch Americana Podcast: The 51st State, on April 30. The podcast’s first season will launch with two episodes featuring Jamestown Revival and Lucero. The first season will profile six artists, with new episodes releasing monthly.

Americana Podcast: The 51st State is dedicated to sharing and expanding on the Americana genre’s roots, reach, and definition. Each episode is told from the point of view of the musicians that have dedicated their lives to the genre. Keen interviews musicians, exploring their unique histories, creative processes, successes, failures, and everything in between.

“Our mission is reflected in the title,” explains Keen. “We want to define and expand the Americana music genre. Let’s unify the musical styles of folk, blues, bluegrass, country, string band, garage band rock into a powerful collectible under the same umbrella. Let’s make Americana, as Shakespeare said, ‘familiar in his mouth as household words.’ That is our mission. That is our goal.”
