Toby Keith's Drinks After Work Storms Charts
Following the release of Drinks After Work, Toby surpassed the 20 million paid singles download mark. That figure does not include tracks from digitally downloaded albums.
Speaking of sales and album debuts, Drinks After Work bowed at No. 1 and No. 2 on the iTunes country chart in Australia - deluxe and standard editions, respectively. Those fans will be well acquainted with the album when Keith launches his first tour on the continent in March.
The Hammer Down Under Tour opens March 14 and will stop in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and at the iconic CMC Rocks The Hunter Festival. Joining Toby will be the Eli Young Band and Kellie Pickler.
Elsewhere, Keith is nominated as Favorite Country Music Icon for this year's People's Choice Awards, which airs Jan. 8 on CBS. In the meantime, he has already been chosen as one of
Country Weekly's Sexiest Men. Featured in the November 18 issue of the magazine, the fans' votes placed him as one of the top picks of this year's poll.
It's all in a life's work for Keith, who earned his place as one of the most successful and acclaimed recording artists and touring draws in history.
