Toby Keith Releases ’35 MPH Town’ [LISTEN]
"35 MPH Town," which Keith penned with Bobby Pinson, is a no-holds-barred message about the singer's take on the current state of affairs in much of the country. With lines like, “Oh, we can’t blame the babies for growing up lazy and crazy / It ain't them that let them down / If they ain't stealing, they’re suing / Why work when we’ll give it to ‘em? / It’s right there in the Bible we don’t put out / Spare the rod, and you’ll sour a 35 mile an hour town," the Oklahoma native does what he does best -- pour his heart and soul into the lyrics.
“I write songs every day,” Keith says. “When someone writes their own things, to me they release their character in their music, and that character shines through in all their songs. It is what I take the most pride in."
Keith has a busy summer planned. In addition to being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, he will also hit the road on his 2015 Good Times & Pick Up Lines Tour, which includes performances at the 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival and Country Jam 2015, both in June. All of his upcoming dates are available on his website.
"35 MPH Town" is available for download on iTunes and via other digital retailers now. It will be released to radio on April 13.
