Keith got his start as a session musician in the late 1950s, playing on Patsy Cline's 'I Fall to Pieces.' He met and befriended Young when they both appeared on 'The Johnny Cash Show' and was recruited in 1971 for 'Harvest.' Keith continued to tour and record with the singer on albums as recently as 2009's 'Fork in the Road.'
In addition to his steady work with Young, the acclaimed pedal steel guitarist played in sessions for artists like Ringo Starr, Todd Rundgren, Warren Zevon, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, among others. As a producer, he produced Jewel's debut album 'Pieces of You,' which also featured Young collaborators Spooner Oldham and Tim Drummond. Keith was also a member of the Pegi Young Band and had reportedly been producing a second volume of songs for Jerry Lee Lewis' 'Last Man Standing.'
