I’ve always enjoyed Toby Keith‘s music. He’s always been able to make great country music that appeals to the masses and never seems to take himself too seriously–two attributes that I like about both music and people alike! He always likes to incorporate a little humor into his music like one of his biggest hits “Let’s Talk About Me” that made me an instant Toby Keith fan from the moment I saw the video.
With his latest release, ‘Clancy’s Tavern’, Toby Keith doesn’t disappoint and has not strayed from the type of music that has made him a star outlasting so many others. It was just released October 24th and in stores now! With the deluxe edition, you’ll get 11 tracks, plus a bonus of 4 live tracks.
My favorites from the album are: “Made In America” – a mid-tempo patriotic song that I thoroughly enjoyed, “I Need To Hear A Country Song” – just pure and good country music, “Clancy’s Tavern” – the melody was hauntingly beautiful with a little hint of an Irish drinking song thrown in there telling a story, which I love, and “Club Zydeco Moon” – another mid-tempo song with a haunting melody and tells a dark story. I, also, enjoyed the live version of ‘Memphis’ that can only be found on the deluxe version. If you’re looking for some humor on this album, look no further than “Red Solo Cup”. It’s a fun, lighthearted salute to the red Solo cup that seems to grace most cookouts and outdoor parties. Check out the humorous video and be sure to be on the lookout for several famous cameo appearances throughout!
This album is a must-have for Toby Keith fans and those people who just enjoy some good country music!
