TOBY KEITH: "I LIKE GIRLS THAT DRINK BEER" New Single From New Album Bows July 24 At Radio & Retail
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) His latest smash song is still ringing in
radio listeners' ears and his previous hit, “Red Solo Cup,” just certified
double platinum. But if there's one constant in the career of Toby Keith, it's
the inexorable progression of new music. "I Like Girls That Drink
Beer," the first single from Toby's next album, 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, "I Like Girls
That Drink Beer" marries a dyed-in-the-wool country sound with an equally
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 honkytonk. Because, of course, he likes girls that drink beer.
As he did on his critically acclaimed 2011 No. 1 album Clancy's Tavern,
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.
In other Toby Keith news, his viral sensation "Red Solo Cup," the
second single from Clancy's Tavern, has just been certified double
platinum by the RIAA. Toby remains on his standing room only Live In
Overdrive Tour, Presented by Ford F-Series. And associated endeavors
including his I Love This Bar And Grill restaurants and Wild Shot Mezcal
continue to experience rapid growth in their markets.
