Krystal Keith Gains Momentum As Opry Debut Approcahes National And Local Press Are Raving; Social Media Takeovers Planned

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Show Dog-Universal recording artist, songwriter and performer Krystal Keith makes her Grand Ole Opry debut on Wednesday, July 9. And country music's most venerable stage isn't the only place she's being noticed following the acclaimed release of Whiskey & Lace, the debut album co-produced by her father, Toby Keith.

Krystal co-hosted and performed on the air at Sirius XM last week (June 24), and has a slew of major market media on tap. These include FOX 8 

News In The Morning in Cleveland (June 30) and FOX 2 News at 9am in St. Louis (July 11).


Recent profiles include the Sacramento Bee, which lauds her entrance into the "family business" - read it here - and a rave review from the Cleveland Plain Dealer. An excerpt: "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 From top to bottom, [Whiskey & Lace] is filled with good, catchy country songs."

Meanwhile, Keith is just as "social" as she is "media." She recently earned a "Chatty Award" from CMchat in the "One To Watch" category. Sunday, she took over the Instagram of Country Music Is Love to share exclusive photos from her Cleveland tour stop. That evening, she took over the outlet's Facebook for a live chat.
