Toby Keith, ‘I Like Girls That Drink Beer’ Keeps the Party Brewing
Drinking songs clearly work for Toby Keith, so he continues to raise his glass to fans with this week’s release of “I Like Girls That Drink Beer.” The country superstar’s new single follows his similarly themed “Beers Ago” and his double platinum-selling, strangely infectious “Red Solo Cup.” Much like the latter tune, Toby admits it was friends who convinced him to release the new song to radio.
“We were in the studio and everybody who heard it was like, ‘You’ve got to release that,’” he recalls.
Co-written by Toby and Bobby Pinson, “I Like Girls That Drink Beer” is the first single from an upcoming, yet-to-be-titled album. The song kicks off the project with an attitude for which Toby is known and loved. “Bye bye, baby, I’m leavin’ / You can keep your mansion and your money / Your boat and your Benz and your uptown friends / And your country club that ain’t really country.”
