Toby Keith Celebrates New Album Release with New York Media Appearances

 

 

Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2015 and set to receive the Poet's Award from the Academy of Country Music, Toby Keith has penned some of the most iconic music of his era. Sometimes, however, his compositions aren't written with airplay in mind. They're written too late at night. Maybe in the back of his bus with a glass of Wild Shot mezcal nearby. September 8, Toby is cracking the door and letting music fans aboard with the release of The Bus Songs.
 
Twelve tracks of pure, road-worthy fun, The Bus Songs is available for pre-order now on Amazonas well as iTunesDemand for the collection continues build as the latest released Instant Gratification track, "Runnin' Block," hit the Hot Tracks list in the all-genre and country sections of iTunes and Apple Music.
 
Go to TobyKeith.com for bundle options of the CD, t-shirt, hoodie, and shot glass. On release day, September 8, Keith will head to New York City for an appearance on Fox & Friends andABC's The View as well as a stop overs at FOX411 Country and SiriusXM for a few interviews.
 
Whether it's adult situational humor, a bit of over-imbibing or seriously funny self-deprecation, Keith lets it all hang out on The Bus SongsNew songs include the just released track "Wacky Tobaccy," for which the video was shot, appropriately, on a tour bus. Already viral with more than 9 million views, the clip also features the namesake of another of the album's tracks, "Weed With Willie." The album's other new composition is "Shitty Golfer," (available for play on Spotify now) a title which pretty much speaks for itself.
 
Never before released recordings include new versions of "Running Block," "Ballad Of Balad," "Hell No" and "The Critic." A live version of the aforementioned "Weed With Willie" has also never been previously released. "Wacky Tobaccy," "Shitty Golfer," "Runnin' Block" and "Call A Marine" are available as instant gratification tracks with album pre-order.
 
Meanwhile, the Toby Keith Interstates & Tailgates Tour continues its standing room only run through the summer. On the schedule was his first headlining show in Nashville in 13 years, and the Tennessean recognized that "...he's in search of a good time. That was clear in the concert's opening minutes, as Keith hoisted the 'Red Solo Cup' he made even more famous and sang 'I got stoned this morning, but I haven't had a drink all day.' Keith pairs his sturdy, stone faced self with a with a huge, dynamic band - including a funky horn section." 
 
Around the country the party has continued with the Allentown Morning Call praising "The Oklahoman put on a delightfully politically incorrect and musically powerful show... with a 10-man band, including three horns, and three backup singers, every song was musically rich. And Keith performed [the songs] strongly."
 
And Tulsa World stated "Keith's commanding presence on stage with his strong voice and talented band gave those fans exactly what they wanted." For tour dates and tickets, visitwww.TobyKeith.com
 
His 14th AnnualToby Keith & Friends Golf Classic set a fundraising record last month for his work with sick children and their families in his native Oklahoma. Earlier this year, Keith performed at Sing Me Back Home: The Music Of Merle Haggard in Nashville, and at Carnegie Hall for The Cake And The Rain: A Celebration Of The Music Of Jimmy Webb in New York City.
