Country Newcomer Krystal Keith Joins Papa Toby Keith’s Tour

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’.”

Just kidding.

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.”

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
