Toby Keith Unwraps New Album with Tour
Toby Keith is starting to gather 2009 dates for backing “That Don’t Make Me A Bad Guy, his newest chart-topping album.
The country star so far has nailed three stops down for late January: Evansville, IN; Peoria, IL; and Albany, NY.
Keith’s summer tour “Biggest & Baddest” was followed by the release in October of his 14th studio album. It’s his seventh album to make it to No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. All the songs from “That Don’t Make Me A Bad Guy” were written or co-written by Keith. He also produced his own album. “She Never Cried in Front of Me,” his No. 1 country hit single, was spawned from the album as well as the rising hit song “God Love Her.” On the MySpace page of Keith’s there are samples of the songs streaming.
The new album follows his “Big Dog Daddy” album of last year. It includes “High Maintenance Woman,” the fastest rising hit single from Keith’s entire career, as well as hit singles “Get My Drink On” and “Love Me if You Can.” “Toby Keith’s 35 Biggest Hits” toped the country charts in May.
Fan’s who don’t want to wait to see Keith performing live can see him throughout this month over the CMT network on the show “Larry the Cable Guy’s Star Studded Christmas Extravaganza.” Keith will also be appearing on “Greatest Moments- Songs of the Season” on NBC, “A Colbert Christmas” on Comedy Central and “A Toby Keith Classic Christmas” on CMT.
Keith is capping a very busy year off that has been full of tour dates as well as working on “Beer For My Horse,” his second major movie that will also be shown this month on CMT.
Forbes ranked Keith last summer as the No. 1 country music earned. In one year he brought in $48 million. During this decade he has sold over 25 million records.
