According to americanamusic.org, Americana is “contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw." Robert Earl Keen’s extensive ten-album catalog is a direct reflection of the genre. With a small stint in Nashville after building some momentum with shows at Gruene Hall and the Cactus Cafe in the early 1980s, Keen eventually moved back to Texas where he ultimately found mainstream success. $37.50-$75, 8pm Sat, Aztec Theater, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com. — Chris Conde
