Robert Earl Keen at Whitewater Amphitheater
Even casual Third Coast country fans know that the Texas A&M grad has been working the circuit since the early ’80s and that his songbook goes far deeper than “The Road Goes on Forever.” Many also noted the singer-songwriter’s commitment to his bandmates. He reportedly refinanced his home during the pandemic so he could keep them salaried and insured while off the road. $28-$98, 9 p.m., Whitewater Amphitheater, 11860 FM 306, New Braunfels, (830) 964-3800, floattheguadalupe.com.
