(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) One of music's most successful artists has done it again. Show Dog Nashville singer, songwriter and entertainer Toby Keith opened at No. 1 on the Country Albums chart with his latest album That Don't Make Me A Bad Guy, on October 28th.


And while music fans putting up hard earned money in tough economic times is the best endorsement of all, the accolades don't stop at the cash register. Bad Guy has drawn some of the most glowing reviews Keith has received in his 15-year career. They include:

"Keith's melodies have such a compelling pop streak that Paul Franklin's fantastic pedal-steel work is easily overlooked, so pay attention. And if you don't think Keith's a great singer, listen to 'Lost You Anyway,' which builds from the Orbison foundation he almost never talks about."
           –USA Today

" of the strongest albums of Keith's career."

"Toby Keith's 14th studio album maintains a purity of country form many of his pop-leaning peers lack."
           –Entertainment Weekly

"In a world of copycats, Toby Keith stands alone."

"Keith knows how to structure a hook better than most other contemporary songwriters in Nashville and he's actually one of the finest male vocalists of his generation."

"Even when he's a 'bad guy,' Toby Keith finishes first."
           –Washington Post

"The disc includes two of the best heartbreakers. His rich baritone resonates with bitterness on the No. 1 hit 'She Never Cried In Front Of Me' and with knowing pain on 'Lost You Anyway.'"

"Keith produced 'Bad Guy' ... his touch is effective. It's the rare moment on a Top 40 modern-country album that goes deeply and genuinely into country's roots: blues and soul."
           –Kansas City Star

"...his gift for melody is intact."
           –New York Times

Toby Keith's Biggest & Baddest Tour has been extended with new dates beginning Jan. 22 in Albany, NY. His current "God Love Her" is racing up the singles charts following the No. 1 ascension of That Don't Make Me A Bad Guy's first single, "She Never Cried In Front Of Me." One of the most acclaimed and respected music makers of his time, Toby Keith has sold more than 25 million albums in this decade alone.
