I wonder if the conversation went like this:
“‘Daddy, can I tour with you’, it’s time to ‘Get my redneck on'”
“‘Who’s your Daddy?’ Just bring your ‘Red Solo Cup’…but I am headlining cause I am still ‘As good as I once was’.”
Acclaimed country music newcomer Krystal Keith will be holding on and doing anything but shutting up as she opens for her father Toby Keith’s ‘Shut Up And Hold On Tour” Presented by Ford F-Series beginning May 30 in San Bernardino, CA.
The lovely and talented Miss Krystal with be flexing her big singing muscles on the road right before country rapper Colt Ford and Papa Toby take the stage.
In the Shut Up and Hold On tour she’ll be supporting her first album Whiskey and Lace, which sired her single “Get Your Redneck On” and video “Daddy Dance With Me.” The song “Daddy Dance With Me,” was written as a surprise for her Toby and she debuted at her wedding, when they did the Daddy/Daughter dance. It has received nearly 2 million video views to date. When I spoke to her in Nashville last year at CMA Fest told me that it talked the song the whole dance and how most Father/Daughter dances were from the Father’s point of view but that he was so impressed with her take on.
We also caught up with Krystal for a #CMchat Twitterview last year in September. Here is the Wrap up. In addition CMchat’s Katie Duncan did a great view of her Krystal’s debut album “Whiskey and Lace.”
Critical acclaim has also rolled in for the singer-songwriter’s first offering. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel noted, “When Krystal lends her deep, well-polished voice to the swaying, organ-infused hard-luck-turned-good tale of ‘Can’t Buy You Money’ or the smoky, swampy blues of ‘Down Into Muddy Water…” While GAC wrote, “With a voice as strong as any, Krystal impresses on her first album,” and Yahoo Voices summed up, “Krystal has talent, a lot of it, and she is going to reach heights of fame that even her father could not imagine.”
