Toby Keith Talks About Him (and the Army) at Cricket
Toby Keith on stage at Cricket Wireless Pavilion in Phoenix.
Last Night: Toby Keith's America's Toughest Tour at Cricket Wireless Pavilion
Better Than: George Jones at Celebrity. Jones is a little pst his prime and didn't play his signature song, "No Show Jones."
Personal Bias: Real Democrat -- not a Toby Democrat that votes for Bush twice. I do tend to agree with our freelancer Brian Bardwell who says you can't hate Toby, though.
Random Fact: I tend to agree with my pal Jess Harter that Toby's restaurant does a lot better with their pulled pork and fried bologna sandwiches than their over-priced appetizers.
Further Listening: "Stays in Mexico," a song I would have liked to hear last night. If a song has a character from Phoenix, Arizona in it, you should play it when you come here.
By the Way: Has a worse country song than Trace Adkins' "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk?" Yes, but only songs recorded by Kenny Chesney and Big & Rich. I'd be happier if all three acts disappeared forever.
