Toby Keith

Toby Keith is more than just a country superstar. With his own record label partnership, restaurant chain and even signature line of booze, he’s virtually a one-man empire. Starting with his 1993 debut single, ‘Should’ve Been a Cowboy,’ Keith has scored an enormous string of 19 No. 1 hits. He’s most closely identified with his blue collar drinking anthems like ‘Red Solo Cup’ and ‘I Love This Bar,’ but he has also written extensively about his patriotism and support for the troops in songs like ‘Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue’ and ‘American Soldier.’ Keith also employs humor in many of his songs and videos, including ‘As Good as I Once Was’ and ‘Who’s Your Daddy,’ and has written several emotional ballads that showcase his more sensitive side. Keith has developed an enormous touring career over the years, and has been named the highest paid artist in country music by Forbes magazine.

  • Birth Name: Toby Keith Covel
  • Top Songs: 'Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American),' 'Red Solo Cup'
  • Did You Know? Prior to his country career, Keith worked in the oil fields.
