Robert Earl Keen is #1
May 25, 2005
Americana golden boy Robert Earl Keen's new album, What I Really Mean, is burning up Billboard's Heatseekers Chart - debuting at #1. The CD is finding respect on other Billboard charts as well, coming in at #5 on Independent Albums (right behind Aimee Mann and John Prine) and is #6 for Internet album sales (although it's currently trailing the Wailin' Jennys' 40 Days, which is soaring on Amazon.com, thanks in part to their appearance on last week's A Prairie Home Companion). What I Really Mean is currently #2 to John Prine's Fair and Square on the weekly airplay list from the Americana Music Association.
