Keenan Rice

Raised by a dairy farmer and an opera singer, Keenan grew up working on the farm, racing cars, and never planned to leave Du Quoin. However, at 22 he moved to Nashville for music. It was a bust, but not wasted time. He spent five years working in corporate America and experiencing life outside of small-town USA. Homesick, he returned in 2005. When the family decided to stop milking, he began his career in insurance. While adjusting to life as a single parent, he rekindled his passion for music and started a band. We Got it Covered occupied his time when he wasn't with his children. It's been a wildly successful and profitable hobby for the last 8 years. In 2017, he found his partner in crime, Jessica, who he married and now owns Eclipse Insurance Agency with, an agency named after her cat, which speaks volumes about Keenan's love for his wife. They share the office with their daughter, Bristol, and have a boy due in December. Keenan also has 3 boys, Riley, Austin and Cooper that keep him busy. He spends endless hours working in the community and with charitable causes. If it happens in Du Quoin, he's in the middle of it!
