TOBY KEITH "DRINKS AFTER WORK" ON JUNE 11 Hammer Down Tour Opens June 8, Ford Sweepstakes Set

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) New music from chart-topping singer-songwriter Toby Keith will delight his fans and music lovers beginning June 11 as "Drinks After Work" arrives at country radio. The single is the first release from an as-yet untitled album due later this year.

"Drinks After Work" celebrates "havin' fun, two-for-one" and the end of the "ball and chain for the suits and skirts - it's just drinks after work."

The new song is sure to be an immediate favorite at Keith's standing-room-only live shows, which resume June 8 in Ozark, AR as he puts the hammer down on the Hammer Down Tour, presented by Ford F-Series. Joining him are Kip Moore and Drake White.

As the tour revs up, Toby and Ford Trucks are partnering to send one fan speeding toward some amazing prizes in the Hammer Down Sweepstakes. The grand prize winner will receive a new 2014 Ford F-150 with EcoBoostŪ, as well as an exclusive backstage barbecue with Keith prior to one of his shows. Entries are now being accepted at www.TobyKeith.com/Ford.

Toby Keith is one of the most consistent recording artists and touring draws of his era, having 30 #1 singles since his debut and continually ranking as one of the genre's top grossing live performers.
