We have a little change of plans from Toby Keith. It looked like Rum Is The Reason would be the new single from Toby, but it looks like now that single will be Beautiful Stranger. Let’s check it out.
Beautiful Stranger – Toby Keith
At this point Toby doesn’t need to prove anything. But it has been about four or five years since he’s had a big hit on the radio.
Can this one change it?
I’m not sure. In the heyday I think this would have certainly been a big hit for Toby. But I’m not sure if he’s at the point in his career where this will be a big hit. I wish it would be.
I think the song is about two people that have been together for a long time. Maybe they’ve been apart. Maybe things haven’t been going well between them, but for one night they’re able to find the magic and make things really special.
It’s a beautiful song. It has that big ballad sound that has worked really well in the past in country music. We haven’t really had a radio hit like this in a few years at least that I can think of.
Maybe it’s time for that to happen again.
Toby released new music this week. I’m sure the album is good. Toby has just been so big at radio for so many years it’s weird not having him on there. I thought for sure Drunk Americans was a top five hit.
Who knows anymore.
Let’s see what happens.
