Hear it: Toby Keith releases new single "Drinks After Work" to country radio

by Brandy McDonnell Published: June 11, 2013

Chart-topping Oklahoma singer-songwriter Toby Keith released his new single “Drinks After Work” today at country radio. The single is the first release from an as-yet untitled album due later this year.

“Drinks After Work” celebrates “havin’ fun, two-for-one” and the end of the “ball and chain for the suits and skirts – it’s just drinks after work.”

The new song is sure to be an immediate favorite at Keith’s standing-room-only live shows as he puts the hammer down on the “Hammer Down Tour,” presented by Ford F-Series. Joining him are Kip Moore and Drake White.

As the tour revs up, the Norman resident and Ford Trucks are partnering to send one fan speeding toward some amazing prizes in the Hammer Down Sweepstakes. The grand prize winner will receive a new 2014 Ford F-150 with EcoBoost, as well as an exclusive backstage barbecue with Keith prior to one of his shows. Entries are now being accepted at

Keith is one of the most consistent recording artists and touring draws of his era, having 30 No. 1 singles since his debut and continually ranking as one of the genre’s top grossing live performers.

Forbes ranked him as the top-earning country artist of 2012.
