Toby Keith Mixes Live Show and Patriotism in New ‘Made in America’ Video
Toby Keith‘s latest videos have been rowdy, high-production movies featuring exciting characters and made for Hollywood story lines. His just released video for ‘Made in America’ is, by contrast, a PBS documentary. There’s none of the adventure of ‘Bullets in the Gun,’ and none of the silliness of ‘Trailerhood.’ ‘Made in America’ is just a perfectly patriotic tribute to our country.
The video begins with live footage from a Keith concert. It’s an impassioned performance of his new song, one that’s no-doubt recreated each time he takes the stage. As Taste of Country reported earlier, the footage was gathered from his Summerfest performance in Milwaukee earlier this month. The singer held true to his promise to not use a staged set for this video. The people, places and farms featured throughout the video are from the town of Cedarburg, Wisc.,and its Fourth of July celebration. Old Glory plays as large of roll in the video as Keith himself, reinforcing the song’s message.
“He’s got the red, white, and blue flyin’ high on the farm / Semper fi tattooed on his left arm / Spends a little more at the store for a tag in the back that says U.S.A. / Won’t buy nothin’ that he can’t fix / With WD-40 and a Craftsman wrench / He ain’t prejudice he’s just, made in America.”
‘Made In America’ is the first single from Keith’s next album. The song is close to becoming his first Top 10 hit since 2009’s ‘Cryin’ For Me.’
