Krystal Keith Gets Her Redneck On

Posted by Kristina Burton on 10/01/2013
On the heels of her hit viral video "Daddy Dance With Me," recording artist Krystal Keith released "Get Your Redneck On" to radio and digital outlets on Sept. 30.
The first official single from her upcoming debut LP Whiskey & Lace, "Get Your Redneck On" is a cool, confident follow-up to the poignant "Daddy Dance With Me," which was written for her father, superstar singer-songwriter Toby Keith. Whereas "Daddy" embodies the bittersweetness of starting a new chapter in life, the breezy, banjo-and-Dobro propelled "Redneck" celebrates sustained happiness. Both demonstrate Krystal Keith's sweet, strong voice and knack for finding themes that resonate far and wide.
"Music is communication," says Keith. "That's what any singer-songwriter wants - to connect with the listeners. And I, like my fans, enjoy having good old-fashioned fun... redneck-style."
Krystal Keith is currently visiting radio stations to promote "Get Your Redneck On." From Oct. 7-11, Krystal will be in the Southeast U.S.; from Oct. 14-18, she'll visit media in the Northwest. Upon her return to Nashville, Krystal will hold media days on Oct. 22- 23 and she'll attend the Country Music Association Awards on Nov. 6.
Taste of Country has already touted the single as a Critic's Pick stating "it's an understated, organic performance that allows Keith to introduce her own unique personality," and that "there's something deliciously rebellious about the chorus."
"Daddy Dance With Me," which Krystal debuted at her own wedding, made her an instant favorite with the country crowd and prompted countless requests. The accompanying video went viral garnering more than 1.3 million views over the course of the summer, encompassing both wedding season and Father's Day. On this first outing, Yahoo Voices proclaimed, "Krystal has talent, a lot of it, and she is going to reach heights of fame that even her father could not imagine."
A lyric video for "Get Your Redneck On," which is co-written by Krystal and noted producer Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Shania Twain), is in post-production.
