TOBY KEITH VIDEO OUTPACES BIGGEST VIRAL HIT EVER "Hope On The Rocks" At Two Million Views In Less Than A Week
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) When singer, songwriter and entertainer Toby
Keith's "Red Solo Cup" became the biggest viral event in country
music history late last year, the notion of matching that success seemed
far-fetched. Until now. Toby's latest video "Hope On The Rocks" has
crossed the two-million views mark less than a week after its Nov. 30 release.
A much different clip from the raucous RSC, "Hope" is
nevertheless drawing viewers at a record pace. Built around Keith in the
protagonist's role as a bartender, the black-and-white mini-movie follows the
song's many characters through life's struggles.
In a sense, "Hope On The Rocks" is almost an emotional
flipside to "Red Solo Cup," and showcases not only Keith's prodigious
writing and story-telling ability - he is the song's sole writer - but also the
acting ability honed in his two full-length feature films.
Directed by his longtime collaborator Michael Salomon, the video
is also in heavy rotation at CMT, GAC and TCN. As the title-track from his new
album, this single is racing up the country charts.
