Show Dog-Universal Music released today “Whiskey & Lace,” the debut album from Oklahoma country singer Krystal Keith.
Produced by Krystal’s father, Oklahoma country superstar Toby Keith, and Mark Wright, the album’s debut single “Get Your Redneck On” recently impacted at radio.
Written by Krystal and noted producer Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Keith Urban), the song was also produced by Chapman. Taste Of Country recently noted the song as its Critic’s Pick for “an understated, organic performance that allows Keith to introduce her own unique personality. There’s something deliciously rebellious about the chorus.”
The album’s other nine tracks credit top songwriters including Rodney Clawson, Dennis Linde, Tim James, Eddy Raven, Bobby Pinson and Casey Beathard. Krystal has writer credit on three songs, including the viral video smash “Daddy Dance With Me,” which she wrote as a surprise for her father. The two danced to the song at her wedding. Released on Father’s Day of this year, the song’s video rapidly drew almost 2 million views and social media mentions, numbers that continue to grow.
The Oklahoma native was honored to perform at her father’s July 6 Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert in Norman alongside Willie Nelson, Sammy Hagar, Trisha Yearwood, Ronnie Dunn, Garth Brooks and more. Yahoo Voices recently noted, “Krystal has talent, a lot of it, and she is going to reach heights of fame that even her father could not imagine.”
Krystal Keith will be the subject of a fly-on-the-wall three-part series being filmed by AXS-TV’s Your Country, the television network for entertainment and other cutting-edge trends, during her upcoming stop in Las Vegas. She will perform Dec. 12 at Revolver Nightclub in the Santa Fe Station Casino, in addition to sitting down with the AXS crew during her downtime.
