New from Kasey Lansdale is Restless, an 11-song country album produced by John Carter Cash. Lansdale grew up in Nacogdoches surrounded by the arts and some of her earliest memories are of singing songs by Reba McIntyre and the Contours with her dad, fiction writer Joe Lansdale. For several years, she’s commuted to Nashville to write, record, and network in the music industry.“I wrote with my producers and some amazing songwriters for this project, and also recorded a few songs written by other writers in Nashville,” she said.Lansdale is also, like her dad, a creative writer and editor. Her first anthology as an editor, Impossible Monsters, is due for release this summer and she’s finished writing her first novel. The versatile artist also is an actress and model.“Singing has taken me all over the world and introduced me to some amazing people, and I feel lucky every day when I wake up because I get to do what I love. I’m just so happy no one has given me a good shake and told me to get a real job,” she said.
