If you are a country music fan, then at some point of time or the other, you would have heard the song “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue”, and the artist that made the song who is otherwise known as Toby Keith.
However, this is no one-hit wonder as Toby has released almost thirteen albums alongwith several multiple compilation albums as well ever since he started his career in country music as a singer in 1993. Almost all his album have gone gold or more, and he has the distinction of having about nineteen Number One hits as well in addition to sixteen Top Ten hits too.
With hits like ‘Beer for my horses’ and ‘As Good as I Once Was’ staying at the top of the country music charts for about six weeks each, it’s not hard to imagine the amount of success this man has had over the last two decades.
His albums in the 90s were even more successful than the ones in the 80s as almost all of them went platinum, with the last one that was only released in October 2010 called Bullets in the Gun that has received a bit of attention for its lyrical content in a good way.
In addition to his music, Toby has acted in movies such as Broken Bridges and Beer for my horses, of which the latter’s script has also been written by him. And if that’s not enough, then his debut song “Should’ve been a cowboy” has the distinction of being the most played song of the 1990s.
