Texas roots-rocker Robert Earl Keen trekked to Glenwood Place Studios in L.A. to record his 11th album, What I Really Mean, with producer Rich Brotherton and engineer Ed Cherney. A crack band and special guests, such as country vocalist Ray Price and punk/bluegrass banjo player Danny Barnes, gathered in Glenwood Place's spacious Studio B, while Cherney captured Keen's latest on the studio's Neve 8068. The album will be released by Koch Records on May 10.
