Palin plans to use old interview of Toby Keith
Wednesday, March 31, 2010
– Sarah Palin apparently intends to use an old interview with Toby Keith on the Fox News program.
Keith's publicist, Elaine Schock, told the New York Times, "I have no idea what interview they are using. Toby's talked to Fox a number of times, and I had no idea that this was going to be on Sarah Palin's special."
Keith was announced as a guest on Real American Stories on Thursday night. Schock said Keith has not been interviewed by Fox News since 2009. He apparently has not been interviewed by Palin either.
Fox announced the special program as being "hosted by Sarah Palin" but did not say she interviewed the people in it.
Schock said she had spoken to the singer about the Palin special. "I'm not going to comment on what Toby feels about it," the Times said.

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.
Most of the album is driven by big hooks and country guitar, However, Keith experiments a bit stylistically with computerized hip hop on the party anthem opener, Shut Up And Hold On, a Buffet-esque steel drum on ...
