The 'ZinePak takes the deluxe version to a new level with unprecedented content including a 64-page magazine built around exclusive interviews with the chart-topping Oklahoman. Topics include his benchmark-setting songwriting, stories behind the making of the album and more. Also included are two custom drink coasters where fans can rest their own drinks ... after work or any other time.
Led by its current title track single, Drinks After Work finds Keith with writer credit on nine of 10 tracks, collaborating again with frequent partners Scotty Emerick, Bobby Pinson and Rivers Rutherford. The deluxe version adds "Call A Marine," "Margaritaville" (featuring Sammy Hagar) and "Chuckie's Gone."
The latter is a remembrance of Keith's bandleader Chuck Goff, who died unexpectedly in February. Goff is also honored in the liner notes, with a note accompanying a full-page photo of the bass player: "This album is dedicated in memory of Chuck Goff, our longtime bandleader-bass player. He will live on forever in our thoughts and in our performances. We miss ya, Shmudlo."
As usual, sole producer credit goes to Toby Keith, who has proven to be one of the most successful and acclaimed recording artists and touring draws in music history. Forbes recently ranked him as the top-earning country artist of 2012, and featured him in a cover story about his many successful endeavors including his I Love This Bar And Grill restaurants, Wild Shot Mezcal and Ford Trucks tour sponsorship. All of it, of course, is anchored by one of the most remarkable careers in the history of music.
