Keith has been a professional naturalist for over 15 years, spending the majority of his adult life as a Tennessee State Park Ranger. He has also been a musician for most of his life, and in 2018 left the parks and went to the Top 24 on Season 15 of NBC’s “The Voice,” and then became the lead singer of 3x Grammy-winning band Blood, Sweat, and Tears. He tours with BS&T internationally.
When tours were canceled due to the pandemic in 2020, he went back to work as a Ranger and rekindled his love for the outdoors by making birding and nature content on Tiktok. In 2021 with the encouragement of his community he left the parks so that he can make birding content while traveling on tour.
