I’ve got something for you guys. Toby Keith’s new CD, “American Ride,” is scheduled to be released on Oct. 6, 2009. That’s a week earlier than the originally scheduled release date of Oct. 13. And today, I received a review copy of the CD, and two copies to offer you guys as contest prizes! So, get ready, we’re having a contest!
I have the CD in my player now. And I don’t mind telling you that “American Ride” is not my favorite song on the CD. I have been a Toby Keith fan for as long as Toby has been in country music. I like all of his music, and as you might have guessed, I’ve seen him in concert. For those of you who haven’t seen one of his shows, you might want to get that on your list. He’s really great at what he does.
Toby’s current single “American Ride,” is his fastest-rising single since “Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue,” (per CMT.com). This new CD is on Toby’s label, Show Dog Records.
The songs on the CD are “American Rice,” “Gypsy Driftin’,” “Are You Feelin’ Me,” “Every Dog Has Its Day,” Woke Up On My Own,” “If You’re Tryin’ You Ain’t,” ‘Cryin’ For Me,” “If I Had One,” “You Can’t Read My Mind,” “Tender As I Wanna Be,” “Loaded,” and “Ballad of Balad,”
This album is definitely Toby. From start to finish you can hear a little bit of every phase of Toby’s career in the music on this CD. There are some songs on the CD that I will skip over now and then, and some that I will play many, many times.
There aren’t any I totally dislike. And there are many that I like a whole lot. My favorites include “Are You Feelin’ Me,” “Cryin’ For Me,” “You Can’t Read My Mind,” and “Tender As I Wanna Be.” I really like his slow stuff. I think you can hear his great voice more in his slow songs. But every song on the CD is Toby, and every one is a fantastic example of what this guy does.
Toby will be heading overseas in November, when his tour takes him to England, Scotland, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway November 9-22. I know country music fans in Great Britain and these Northern Europe countries are going to love having Toby perform there!
