Toby Keith

Toby Keith ain’t your typical bad boy. Oh, he’s a bad boy, but he’s built along the down-home lines of eatin’ biscuits and gravy three times a day (screw the doctor), tippin’ back a few cans of Coors after work (screw the beer snobs) and writin’ any damned song he wants (FUDC). Like the best musical bad boys, Keith’s work leaves little room for fair-weather fans, and most listeners either love him like a son or hate his stupid redneck ass. What’s not to love about a guy who croons lyrics such as I like my truck, I like my girlfriend, but I love this bar or the best that you can hope for is to die with your boots on? Totally unapologetic, totally country and totally Toby. Keith’s latest offering, Shock’n Y’all, continues his long tradition of sliding bawdy, humor-driven, “let’s get this party started” songs alongside heartbreakers and flag-wavers. Songs like “I Love This Bar” and “Weed With Willie” mingle with tracks such as “American Soldier” and “The Taliban Song.” Bad boy? What bad boy?
