Keb’ Mo’ has announced his new album Good To Be, set for release on January 21st 2022. The first single “Good Strong Woman” featuring Darius Rucker is available now. Written between Nashville and his childhood home in Compton, California, Good To Be is a celebration of roots and resilience, drawing on country, soul, and blues to forge a sound that transcends genre and geography.

On “Good Strong Woman”, Keb’ Mo’ explains, “I co-wrote this with two of Nashville’s best country writers, Jason Nix and Jason Gantt. It’s a song that I didn’t think I’d be recording, but it was just too much fun, and I had to give it a shot. When Darius got involved, it went from fun to stun”

Good To Be was co-produced by Keb’ Mo’ alongside country music legend Vince Gill, who produced three of the album’s 13 tracks, and three-time GRAMMY winner Tom Hambridge (B.B. King, Buddy Guy). Darius Rucker, Kristin Chenoweth, and Old Crow Medicine Show all make guest appearances on the album.

Dividing his time during the pandemic between Nashville and Compton, where he recently purchased and renovated his late mother’s house, Keb’ often found himself reflecting on the idea of home, contemplating what it means to belong and what it takes to stay true to yourself.

​​“You can’t bring an attitude to Compton,” reflects Keb’. “You can’t pose. You can’t be anything but real when you’re walking down the same streets you used to ride your bike on as a kid. In a lot of ways, coming back there felt like it completed me.”

Last month, Keb’ Mo’ was the recipient of the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Performance Award, which was presented to him at the organization’s 20th annual Honors and Awards show in Nashville.

Keb’ Mo’ will be on tour throughout the rest of the year, with additional dates to be announced in the coming months. Find a full list of confirmed tour dates below.
