Beer For My Horses features Keith and comedian Rodney Carrington as sheriffs deputies chasing a drug lord and kidnapper in classic road trip buddy comedy form. Written by Keith and Carrington, the film shares the same title of Keiths #1 hit duet with Willie Nelson, who also appears. Yahoo! Movies raves at how its "a rip-roaring roaring road trip with all the makings of a rollicking comic joyride" while The Buffalo News hails the film as "idiomatically dead-on, well-written, smartly paced and provides plenty of belly laughs." The reviewer for Tulsa Today predicts that Beer for My Horses "is a cult classic in the making" and "thoroughly enjoyed its humor, quirks and shockingly competent supporting cast." The movie follows Tobys acclaimed starring performance in his feature film debut, 2006s Broken Bridges.
