While so many are getting used to the big news out of Casa Kurban we still would like to remind you that Keith does have a record out and a tour to come. Put You in a Song, the first single off the record is in the top five on the Country charts. Not because it’s a big seller, but because there really hasn't been too much released in the last six weeks. Keith will be on a Super Bowl broadcast soon, but will that help his sales? When Keith appeared on Oprah there was really little change in his sales. He was an afterthought on his second Oprah appearance; he spoke very little and didn't perform. The CD is freefalling on the charts.
If Keith were smart, and he actually is, it’s time to ditch the happy helpmate persona and start building up the career. Tickets will soon be on sale for the first leg of the summer tour in the US. Jake Owen, a questionable choice, has been named the opener for the US tour.
There is a lot riding on this tour. Keith needs to have strong ticket sales and will that happen? Is his core audience less likely to follow him from show to show? We will see. How is he going to save this disaster of a record? What will be the next single? Will it ever get back to just the music? Does anyone, even Keith, care anymore?
