Default Toby Keith

He's a polarizing figure but I think he's a pretty good song writer. I assume we're not going to get much traction here, but if theres someone else out there, let me know what you think.


Red Solo Cup


As good as I once was


I love this bar

Well, this guy really knows how to write some amusing, feel-good lyrics and he delivers them with just the right, easy-going tone. It`s difficult to listen to these songs without a smile, but I`m not sure that I`d want to listen to them again in hurry.

I wonder what`s polarizing about Toby Keith - is it because he`s celebrating what I understand to be a sort of macho, redneck lifestyle ?

I was impressed to see him singing behind a chicken-wire screen in the last video. Do places like that really exist ?

Allegedly they exist, but I think its a blues brothers (Movie) reference.

He's polarizing because of his political stance on things. I purposely didn't link any of the videos that are offensive to the left-side of the political spectrum. He tends to be pretty jingoistic.

Oh yes, they most certainly do. I live not too far from a very rural area.

^ Well, you did the right thing there, I`m sure.

On the other side of the water, these guys enjoyed a brief popularity because of their humourous take on British drinking habits :-



They were pretty friendly with Clapton for a while and even opened for Led Zeppelin once apparently, but in the end their style was just too old-fashioned and homely to be considered as anything other than a novelty act.

Enjoy it if you can !

^ That`s something you never see in England, though I did once go to a huge, empty bar at lunchtime and watched with some surprise while a local dog ambled in, cocked his leg, peed on the bar and strolled out again. I don`t think the barstaff even noticed.
