Keith looks for "A Few More Cowboys"
Friday, July 8, 2016
– Toby Keith released a new single today, "A Few More Cowboys," from an upcoming disc.
Keith co-wrote the song, which can be heard here with Bobby Pinson and Dean Dillon. Lyrics include:
With a few more cowboys, there'd be a lot less outlaws
With a few more amens, be a lot less bad calls
And a few more yes ma'ams, be a lot less yes men
This world would be a better place to live in
With a few more cowboys
Pinson has written eight chart-toppers and has had songs cut by Sugarland, Blake Shelton and Marty Stuart. A member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, Dillon penned George Strait's "The Chair" and George Jones' "Tennessee Whiskey," as well as 10 co-writes with Keith.
The new music comes as the Toby Keith Interstates & Tailgates Tour Presented by Ford F-Series continues to October.

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 ...
