On Wednesday, July 9, country music singer-songwriter Krystal Keith took another stride forward with her debut performance at the venerable Grand Ole Opry.

“I have never been nervous on a stage in my life…until that night at The Grand Ole Opry,” Krystal recalls. “There is something so special and sacred about that stage and being in the circle knowing all of my musical heroes have performed there so many times before me. I was so humbled and honored to have joined that long line of legends who’ve shared that moment.”

The artist also shared her moment with her dad, Toby Keith, on the day after his birthday adding another special element to the night. She notes, “his love of the good ole time country music is one of the greatest influences for both my dad and I and being asked to perform just after his birthday didn’t feel like a coincidence. It felt like a sign that he is watching over me smiling and guiding me through this journey.”

This performance follows many recent firsts for Krystal. This summer she embarked on her first major tour, opening for her dad on his Shut Up And Hold On Tour Presented by Ford F-Series. She is on the road in support of the release her debut album, Whiskey & Lace. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel raved “when Krystal lends her deep, well-polished voice… she reveals herself as an exciting new artist;” and the Cleveland Plain Dealer praised, “Keith has matured into a solid singer, with a wide range. And, like her dad, she’s evolved into a songwriter capable of not just tugging at heartstrings, but playing them like a puppet master. …From top to bottom, [Whiskey & Lace] is filled with good, catchy country songs.”

At recent tour stops in the Washington DC (June 28) and Cleveland (June 29) areas, Krystal brought her show out to the fans before the venue gates opened and performed with her band in the back of a pickup truck for a crowd full of tailgaters in the parking lot.
