The last time Toby Keith didn’t release a new studio album in a year was 2004 and at that time he released his second great hits package, which was a huge hit with brand new singles.
You have to go back to 2000 for the last year Toby didn’t release a new album of any kind.
That’s pretty impressive. Toby is kind of an old school artist in that way. He always delivers the new records and he always does it for the fans.
Now he’s ready with the first single off his 2013 album. He’s sticking with the drinking theme, which he’s done the last couple years now. Check out the new song.
Drinks After Work – Toby Keith
Listen to: Drinks After Work by Toby Keith
This song sticks right in Toby’s wheelhouse. He’s been on the drink kick for the last few years, but I guess he’s always had a tip of the hat to the drink dating all the way back to You Ain’t Much Fun (Since I Quit Drinkin’).
So this song should sound familiar to fans. But it also has a little bit of a new style. It’s got a little Jimmy Buffett influence in there. You know those Parrotheads work all day in the office only to race to the concerts on the weekends to throw down and have a good time.
That’s what this song is about. Letting loose after a day of staring at the computer screen to have a little fun.
Toby is aging well with his audience. There are a lot of country fans out there that are working long office days. They’re looking for a little reprieve from the mundane.
Good song. Should be another solid top 20 on the charts.
