Toby Keith’s current chart-running single “Drinks After Work” may be wetting the whistle of music fans, but Keith is springing for a dozen more rounds with the October 29th release of his latest album via Showdog-Universal. Available in ten track standard and 13 track deluxe editions, Drinks After Work again finds Keith serving as sole producer and principle songwriter with credit on nine of ten tracks. Longtime collaborators Scotty Emerick, Bobby Pinson and Rivers Rutherford return as co-writers on multiple songs.
Beyond the title track and nine other cuts, the deluxe addition also includes “Call A Marine,” “Margaritaville” (featuring Sammy Hagar) and “Chuckie’s Gone.” The latter is a tribute to Keith’s bandleader Chuck Goff, who died unexpectedly earlier this year. Goff is also remembered in the liner notes:
“This album is dedicated in memory of Chuck Goff, our longtime bandleader-bass player. He will live on forever in our thoughts and in our performances. We miss ya, Shmudlo.”
Toby Keith is one of the most consistent recording artists and touring draws of his era and continually ranking as one of the genre’s top grossing live performers. Forbes ranked him as the top-earning country artist of 2012. An iTunes pre-sale of Drinks After Work will be available October 1st.
A Deluxe Zinepak Edition will also be available that includes the deluxe CD with three additional bonus tracks, a 64 page exclusive magazine and two custom Toby Keith drink coasters.
