“Toby Keith was enormous, arrogant, and never slowed down or bowed to others. His background is uniquely American; he was a former oil field laborer who established a unique career in country music through his powerful voice and unyielding determination. When he felt Nashville was underserving, he subsequently established his record label and composed his breakthrough songs.
