Toby Keith announces holiday CD details
Monday, August 13, 2007
– Toby Keith will release his first holiday album in more than a decade this fall. The two-disc A Classic Christmas features Keith's renditions of traditional yuletide favorites.
No exact release date was announced Monday.
Produced by Keith and Grammy winner Randy Scruggs, the set offers favorites including "White Christmas," "Silver Bells" and "The Christmas Song."
"There's a reason people gravitate to these songs year after year, and I'm
no exception," Keith says. "I wouldn't have considered making another Christmas record, if not for the fact that I hadn't done any of these the first time around. And doing a double disc set let us go back and get just about all the big ones."
His 1995 release, "Christmas To Christmas," contained new songs, many penned by Keith.
Songs on the new set include:
1. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
2. Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow
3. Winter Wonderland
4. Silver Bells
5. I'll Be Home For Christmas
6. Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree
7. The Christmas Song
8. White Christmas
9. Frosty The Snowman
10. Please Come Home For Christmas
1. Little Drummer Boy
2. Go Tell It On The Mountain
3. The First Noel
4. O Come All Ye Faithful
5. Silent Night
6. Away In A Manger
7. We Three Kings
8. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
9. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
10. Joy To The World

They paired well with alcohol, and just owning them could make someone a little cooler by association. Such a concept might mystify millennials who can punch up any song they imagine. 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 ...
