Keeper Of The Plains Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine & Radio Show

Lamitschka:  Music has many new fans throughout Europe who may be hearing about you for the first time. How would you describe yourself and the music you play to someone who has never seen or heard you?

Answer: I would describe myself as a man who adores his family and loves the Lord.  I’m a hard working, blue-collar worker with good morals and values.  My music is very in touch with whats going on in the world today.  Its very relatable to all blue-collar and white-collar workers.  The music is a good blend of classic country with an edge but still very classy. 

Lamitschka:  Your current single is being played by radio. What do you feel is special about this song that makes people want to hear it?

Answer:  The special thing about my new single, “Keep On Rollin is it’s accurate depiction of a hard working man with big dreams.  Though he may be living paycheck to paycheck and getting knocked down, his dreams keep him going because they can never be stolen.  The lyrics of the song are so relatable to all walks of life and no matter who you are you’ll love the message. 
Lamitschka:  What kind of songs do you like to record the most?

Answer:  I love to record ballads because you can really convey your feelings and emotions to the listener.  It is nice to say exactly whats inside your head, like my song “Mercy of You. ” That song is filled with words straight from my heart and soul.
Lamitschka:  Who inspires you musically and how deep do your musical roots run?

Answer:  My family inspires me the most, they are nothing but supportive of all my music endeavors.  My roots in music go all the way back to my grandparents who loved country music as well as Mexicana artists such as Vincente Fernandez.  I can remember from my childhood, my grandfather playing the Mexicana music and my grandmother cooking in the kitchen playing music from artists like Linda Rodstadnt and Willie Nelson. 
Lamitschka:  What inspired you to become an artist?

Answer:  My 6th grade music teacher, Mr. Hales, would tell me to be persistant and keep going after your dreams.  He has since passed away, but I always think of his words.  He would say that by working hard and keeping good faith you can become sucessful.
Lamitschka:  What's unique about you that will differentiate you from other artists?

Answer:  My vocals are very different from other artists in today’s country music.  I come from a church background, so my vocals are very soulful and gritty with controlled vibrato.  Also, the band’s red dirt sound is still less prominent in the genre which helps to differentiate us. 
Lamitschka:  When you get time off, how do you like to relax?

Answer: I enjoy spending as much time with my wife and daughter as I can.  We like to spend time by the pool and have cookouts with our family and friends.  Eating good food with good people often leads to late night conversations about music, life and family — there’s nothing more relaxing than that.
Lamitschka:  What can your fans expect to see when they see you in concert?

Answer: They will see a guy on stage that will give his fans their money’s worth with lights, smoke and crowd participation.  I make it a fan affair when we are on stage.  I like to get the crowd involved whether we be in a smoky bar or a big stage.  If you have not seen Keeper Of The Plains yet you must come out to one of our shows.  We put on quite the concert!
Lamitschka:  What's the best compliment a fan has ever given you?

Answer: I will sometimes hear, “That was one hell of a show” or “great vocals.”  Many times they say both, but what we hear all the time is, “Man, I never expected a rock concert.  You guys rock!”

Lamitschka:  What's your favorite song that you wish you could have recorded?

Answer: Anymore by Travis Tritt
