Reckless Kelly will "Keep Lookin' Down the Road"

Tuesday, June 11, 2024 – Americana / Red Dirt band Reckless Kelly will release their new single, "Keep Lookin' Down the Road," on June 21.

This is the debut track from the album "The Last Frontier", slated for release this fall. The song will also have a music video shot and directed by Reckless Kelly frontman Willy Braun.

"Keep Lookin' Down the Road" "is a reflection on the past and an appreciation for the present, but most importantly, it's an optimistic look ahead. It reassures the listener that good things are coming our way, while at the same time reminding us to live for the moment because, at the end of the day, Mother Nature bats last," said Braun.

Reckless Kelly co-founder, Cody Braun agreed, "I think this song fits where we are as a band right now. While we are making some changes and not going to be on the road as much, we are still excited about what the future holds for us as a band and as individuals."

Written by Willy Braun, brother Gary Braun (Micky & The Motorcars) and close friend Jeff Crosby, the song emerged from the trio's annual "Hitscation," a yearly songwriting retreat they hold at an off-the-grid cabin in Idaho.

In the coming weeks, the band will unveil further details about "The Last Frontier," to their fans including a cover reveal, special guests, track listing, and the video.

Reckless Kelly is on tour now, including select co-headlining shows with Steve Earle during which they will be performing sets with Earle as his band "The Dukes" as well as their own sets.

Bassist Joe Miller replaces Jim McFeely, and keyboardist Bukka Allen is added to the mix. ...
CD review - Sunset Motel With "Buckaroo" off Reckless Kelly's "Sunset Motel" the band gives us one of the best hurtin' songs in recent memory. "You were my angel/I was your buckaroo," they tell us with deep regret. And after all the booze has worn off, the cold, harsh facts of life come clearly into view. "Now that I'm sober/I wish you were home." "Sunset Motel" is like a sturdy truck, strong and dependable. It also contains plenty of creative charm. ...
CD review - Long Night Moon The Austin-based Reckless Kelly's follow-up to "Good Luck & True Love" has a somewhat softer edge than their acclaimed 2011 release, though songwriter Willy Braun's cynical view of love and relationships remains fully intact. The opening title track sets the tone ("I wonder why I keep torturing my soul/Beneath the urban sky") that pervades the album. There are still some solid country rockers, including Real Cool Hand and Every Step Of the Way, and particularly ...
