Proud Of East Texas: Kasey Lansdale

Whether talent is passed on through the genes or through the environment is a moot point in the Lansdale household. Dad Joe Lansdale is a best-selling author and daughter Kasey is a rising country music star, who also writes most of her material.

While Joe prefers to write crime and horror stories, Kasey writes heartfelt ballads. There's no doubt that Joe has a number of contacts but he says contacts don't help if the talent isn't there. In Kasey's case, the talent is there and it's already enabled her to open for country music legend Ray Price, and booked her on tours in Greece and Italy. She's scheduled for a music festival this summer in Norway and has three movie offers to consider.
