Keith sticks with beer
Monday, July 23, 2012
– Toby Keith is sticking with beer - for his next single at least. After having a hit with Beers Ago,
Keith's next single will be I Like Girls That Drink Beer,.
The song is the first single from Keith's next album and arrives at radio and all digital download sites July 24. "We were in the studio and everybody who heard it was like, 'You've got to release that,'" Keith said.
Written by Keith with longtime collaborator Bobby Pinson, the song marries a dyed-in-the-wool country sound with an on-point sentiment: "Bye bye, baby I'm leavin'/You can keep your mansion and your money/Your boat and your Benz and your uptown friends/And your country club that ain't really country." Keith promises he'll find what he wants in a honky tonk because he likes girls that drink beer.
As he did on his 2011 disc, "Clancy's Tavern," which had the hit Red Solo Cup, Keith produced the new single and continues work on the rest of the music that will comprise his next release. A specially mastered version of the song will be available on iTunes.
Red Solo Cup, the second single from "Clancy's Tavern," was certified double platinum by the RIAA.

But Toby Keith remembers.

Way back in the '90's, before millions of dollars, high profile political feuds and moguldom, Toby Keith could really sing and write a pretty good song! News flash! He still can on his nostalgic, 18th album.
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.
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 ...
