(Show Dog Nashville)
Toby Keith began his country career as one of those cute, curly haired pretty boys, but it didn’t take long for him to find his inner Outlaw and Southern rock roots. That’s when ol’ Toby really started dominating the charts. Since then, Keith has racked up some major fame and has become known as one of the toughest son of a bitches in Nashville.
With 35 Biggest Hits, Toby Keith delivers a hefty resume filled with some of the very best country songs of the past decade. From his original Top Ten hit “Should've Been A Cowboy” to one of my personal favorites, the ultimate “pay back” song, “How Do You Like Me Now,” this double album set rocks the country like nobody’s business.
Another one I always loved is Toby’s duet with Sting on “I’m So Happy I Can’t Stop Crying.” Also included are mega hits like “I Wanna Talk About Me,” “Courtesy Of The Red, White And Blue (The Angry American) (a favorite of the soldiers in Iraq, I understand), along with “American Soldier,” “I Love This Bar,” “As Good as I Once Was,” and the Willie Nelson duet, “Beer for My Horses.”
35 Biggest Hits is a tour de force of Outlaw country swagger. A damn fine record. The perfect soundtrack for your next pre-game keg party. Somebody say “Hell yeah!”
