– Toby Keith will play the leading man when the movie "Broken Bridges" is released Sept. 8. Keith plays a down on his luck country music singer who returns to his hometown to discover a daughter he has never met. Kelly Preston co-stars as Keith's character's old flame, with newcomer Lindsey Haun in the role of the 16-year-old daughter.

The first single, "Broken," is performed by Haun, who is currently working on her debut album. "Broken" will be released to country radio later this summer.
Toby joins Haun for a duet on the title track, while Willie Nelson and BeBe Winans offer a version of the spiritual "Uncloudy Day." Other performers include Scotty Emerick, Matraca Berg, Sonya Isaacs, Rushlow Harris, Flynville Train and Fred Eaglesmith.

You can hear an unexpected Merle Haggard influence all over this record. The title cut, "35 MPH" evokes a Haggard vibe. Think "Roots Of My Raising - 2015" as Keith laments the loss of the commonplace, now gone forever. What could've easily been an appeal ...
If 52-year old Toby Keith has learned anything after 20 years, it is to stick with a winning formula. Working with longtime collaborators Scotty Emerick, Bobby Pinson and Rivers Rutherford, "Drinks After Work" is chock full of blue collar ethic, humor and some heartbreak.
