Brian Keane has been building his career over the past few years as a songwriter and sideman. A couple years ago, he stepped to the forefront and began releasing solo material. He recently released his second full-length album, Coming Home, and his racking up the tour dates in support of it. Brian takes time out of his busy schedule to jump into another round of our Twenty Questions. He tackles such topics as why playing with Randy Rogers Band was such a good gig, why tractors aren’t sexy and relates anecdotes about west Texas being a speed trap. Enjoy!

I’m not sure, I’ll ask her. (laughs)
