Four-time Grammy Award-winning musician Keb’ Mo’ discusses his latest album, “Oklahoma.”

Keb’ Mo’ has cultivated a reputation as a modern master of American roots music in the 25 years since the release of his debut album. After 14 albums, he is a musical force that defies typical genre labels. He has co-written with The Dixie Chicks and collaborated with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Natalie Cole, and Lyle Lovett. His guitar playing inspired two instrument makers to name guitar models in his honor. Mo’s most recent album, Oklahoma, addresses topics such as immigration, depression, pollution, love, female empowerment, and features cameos including Taj Mahal and Roseanne Cash.
