TOBY KEITH HAS A "HOTTIE" ON HIS HANDS
<(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) "She"s A Hottie," the smoking new single from chart-topping entertainer Toby Keith, is burning up the singles charts, igniting a firestorm of download activity and fueling a surge in catalog sales.>
Already in the top 20 on the Billboard/R&R and Mediabase/Country Aircheck singles charts after only a few weeks, "She's A Hottie" is making the kind of airplay impact radio has come to expect of a Keith release.
And fans are already reacting in a big way. Digital single sales exploded almost 40% this week. Simultaneously, album sales for Keith's recent studio album Big Dog Daddy have jumped 24% both in stores and digitally.
As impressive as "She's A Hottie" has been in it first few weeks of release, this success is only kindling for the May 6 launch of Toby Keith's 35 Biggest Hits. Comprising 34 smash singles on two discs, plus the new single, the collection spans the multi-platinum performers entire career.
Released on Show Dog Nashville/Universal Music Enterprises, 35 Biggest Hits opens with his first No. 1 hit, 1993's "Should've Been A Cowboy," and runs all the way through his 2006 chart-topper "A Little Too Late." Keith has sold more than 30 million albums, he's been deluged with critical praise and peer approval in the form of awards, and he's consistently been one of the top-drawing live performers in the nation. His second feature film, Beer For My Horses, recently finished shooting in New Mexico.
