Singer, songwriter, producer and entertainer Toby Keith knows how to have a good time and write funny songs. The man whose songs have amassed more than 90 million broadcast performances is also beloved for his “bus song” album cut “Weed With Willie.” And his “Red Solo Cup” became a viral sensation long before radio took notice. Next up, “Wacky Tobaccy,” out June 23.
That old Wacky Tobaccy / When you feel it creeping up on you / That old Wacky Tobaccy / Kick back and let it do what it do
“Wacky Tobaccy is a slogan, a saying that’s been around forever and no one has ever put it in a song,” says Keith. “When we were working on it, somebody asked if the saying has ever been written in a song and I said, ‘no, but they will now.’ We recorded it and shot the video in Nashville. We got a cameo from Willie Nelson. We have a long-standing friendship. It’s fortunate that we got him. ‘Wacky Tobaccy’ is written to the screws, and it fits in with what we do every night with the party crowd.”
Written with longtime collaborator Scotty Emerick, “Wacky Tobaccy” will be available at all major digital music retailers and services. Toby has penned many bus songs that have frequently appear on his albums. They are crafted when he and his buddies are sitting around the bus and have fun writing something a little different. Keith loves to perform the humorous songs to military personnel on his USO Tours. Most rewarding is being able to put smiles on the faces of soldiers from all over the United States who are serving their country.
The release heralds more new music from Keith this year, which also sees the continuation of the Toby Keith Interstates & Tailgates Tour that filled venues nationwide throughout 2016. Toby recently performed at Sing Me Back Home: The Music Of Merle Haggard in Nashville and he took the stage at Carnegie Hall for The Cake And The Rain: A Celebration Of The Music Of Jimmy Webb in New York City where he performed Webb’s classic, “MacArthur Park.”
Making a guest appearance in the video for “Wacky Tobaccy” is none other than the namesake of “Weed With Willie,” Willie Nelson, who also collaborated with Keith on the song “Beer For My Horses.” “Weed With Willie,” fired up way back in 2003, is ranked on Billboard’s list of “weed anthems.” The song has more than 10 million streams, and video versions have amassed more than 15 million views.
Last month, the Academy of Country Music announced Keith as an honoree to receive their Poet’s Award for songwriting in recognition of his outstanding and longstanding musical and lyrical contributions as a songwriter throughout his career, his songs’ impact on the culture of country music. Also receiving the award this year are Willie Nelson and the late Shel Silverstein.
And the Songwriter Hall of Fame Inductee’s 14th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic, to benefit the Toby Keith Foundation and its work with OK Kids Korral (a cost-free home away from home for sick children and their families seeking treatment in Oklahoma City), just raised $1.6 million, a record-breaking amount of funds for a single event in the Foundation’s history.
Grandma and Grandpa rented the cabin, and Nathan and Jessica provided the granddaughter the perfect recipe for a magnificent vacation. Ella was walking everywhere into everything and just leaning using her first words. With credit to Nate and Jess,Ella is about as happy, curious, friendly, independent and obedient as a toddler can be. One of the best things they have taught her is to ask for help. If a toy needed winding or a glass needed filling, Ella would hold it up to the nearest adult and say, “Hep”
One early morning while everyone was asleep she and I walked down to the sandy spot on the lake next to our dock. Self-driven and determined, Ella was speeding ahead, leaving Grandpa to follow. Along the way were obstacles: a closed door, steps on the path and finally a retaining wall near the water just higher than her little legs could manage.. at each one, without looking back, she reached her little hand toward me and exclaimed, “Hep”.
Sitting on the dock, watching her splash in the shallow as the sun warmed the morning , a thought came to me how like Ella I ‘d like to be. She just started off into her day, knowing I would be right there when she needed me. When a problem arose, she didn’t fret, whine or quit, she simply raised her hand and asked for help, fully expecting I would have the ability to handle whatever obstructed her. Once past the obstacle she rushed ahead to the next one, confident I would be there every time she needed .
