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.
