WATCH: Toby Keith Releases Music Video for “Drunk Americans”

Toby Keith

The countdown began Saturday (Nov. 22) with the release of a teaser video and notifications across social networks including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Today, Toby Keith’s “Drunk Americans” video premiered prominently across Vevo, with its CMT premiere set for Thursday (11/27)

Directed by Michael Salomon with animation by Ben Naff, the video captures the song’s inclusive, wall-busting view of the American people. Written by Brandy Clark, Bob DiPiero and Shane McAnally, “Drunk Americans” lyrics break down barriers and rally, “We ain’t east, we ain’t west. We ain’t left, we ain’t right. Ain’t black, we ain’t white, we just came here to drink… We just raise up our glass, we don’t give a rat’s ass, if you’re a democrat or republican, we’re happy to be here tonight you can see, we’re just all drunk Americans.”

In the meantime, Toby has several events on the slate. Early next month, he’ll perform at theCoyote Acoustic Concert for Louisville radio legend Coyote Calhoun. The December 3 show benefits multiple children’s charities and celebrates the WAMZ program director and air talent, a longtime friend of Keith’s and fellow fan of Oklahoma University.

A few days later, Keith’s CMC Rocks the Hunter television special premieres on Foxtel cable in Australia. Toby played the internationally known festival in Hunter Valley, Australia March 16 during his Hammer Down Under Tour.

On Jan. 9, Toby headlines CMT’s Ultimate Kickoff Party, which will air live from the College Football National Championship in Dallas. He’ll be joined by Lady Antebellum, Big & Rich and Brett Eldredge.

Toby Keith presides over a business empire that includes his I Love This Bar & Grill restaurants, Wild Shot Mezcal and more. But it is his work as a songwriter, musician, vocalist, producer and entertainer that is the creative engine behind chart-topping albums and standing-room-only tours. Learn more about him at

Toby Keith

Just a week after the release of his latest single, “Drunk Americans,” Toby Keith will be celebrating National Mezcal Day on October 21 with his Wild Shot Mezcal, Toby’s signature spirit that has revolutionized its category of adult beverages. Toss a shot back and “blame it on the worm,” mix up a cocktail of specially crafted recipes from, or visit Wild Shot’s Facebook page for exclusive giveaways to honor the holiday.

This month will also welcome five lucky folks who have gone from being huge Toby Keith fans to proud Toby Keith drinking buddies as the winners of the first ever Drinks After Work Sweepstakes, conducted courtesy of Wild Shot Mezcal. Selected from over 100,000 Facebook and mail-in entries, Linda Tebben, Christel Meeks, Donna Watson, Sherri Singleton and Caroline Mann all won the opportunity to join the chart-topping singer, songwriter and entertainer for an afternoon drink.

The date was worked into a packed schedule that included his Shut Up And Hold On Tour Presented by Ford F-Series stops, as well as the Oct. 14 release of his new single, “Drunk Americans.” Though the contest closed Aug. 31, Toby fans can still celebrate with the Big Dog Daddy on Oct. 21 by enjoying a glass of Wild Shot after work that afternoon.

“Our Drinks After Work Sweepstakes surpassed our expectations with more than 100,000 fans entering,” says Wild Shot CMO Shawn Harlan. “I wish I was there to see all their faces when we announced the five winners. I will be lucky enough to thank them all in person when we have them together for our drinks.”

Fans who missed out on the sweepstakes this summer also had the chance to raise a glass of Wild Shot on tour, as the Wild Shot Mezcal inflatable bar made appearances at select dates on the nationwide outing. This was the third year going that portable watering hole went on the road with its headliner.

If you have your own bottle of Wild Shot Mezcal, you can mix up a cocktail at home. In a recent edition of Country Weekly, new recipes for the TK Campfire and the Wild Stay in Mexico drinks are exclusively featured in a two-page spread.
