TOBY KEITH PACKS ON THE FRESHMAN 15 RyanSeacrest.com Gives "Red Solo Cup" College Nod(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) As high school graduates nationwide head off to college, widespread preparations are made to ease their transition. No exception, Ryan Seacrest's website set out to provide musical suggestions for incoming freshman with it's "Freshman 15 Your Playlist Cannot Live Without" listing. And Toby Keith is prominently featured.
In the section touting the college stereotype of "epic parties," Keith's "Red Solo Cup" is heralded along with Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" and Asher Roth's "I Love College." See the full list here.
When college students aren't singing the praises of Keith's beverage holder of choice, they may be singing along to his new single "I Like Girls That Drink Beer." One of the most added records at country radio, the fast-rising addition to Toby's prodigious hit library is the first single from his upcoming album Hope On The Rocks, out Nov. 13. It follows his 2011 release Clancy's Tavern, which debuted at No. 1 overall.
His Live In Overdrive Tour, Presented by Ford F-Series continues to fill large venues nationwide. And his rapidly expanding I Love This Bar & Grill restaurant chain is earning rave reviews.
Meanwhile, Toby's signature Wild Shot Mezcal has risen to dominate the mezcal segment of the spirits business in a little over a year. From engaging cocktail recipes (also available at I Love ThisBar & Grill locations) to glowing reports in beverage trade press and a presence at Keith's concerts, Wild Shot is another successful Toby Keith release.
