Toby Keith releases new album "Drinks After Work"

by Brandy McDonnell Published: October 29, 2013

The most expansive album package of Oklahoma country music superstar Toby Keith’s acclaimed career accompanies today’s release of “Drinks After Work.”

Available in 10-track standard and 13-track deluxe versions, the release also comes in an exclusive ‘ZinePak edition available only at Walmart. Click here to pre-order, http://smarturl.it/DAWzinepak

The ‘ZinePak takes the deluxe version to a new level with unprecedented content including a 64-page magazine built around exclusive interviews with the chart-topping Oklahoman. Topics include his benchmark-setting songwriting, stories behind the making of the album and more. Also included are two custom drink coasters where fans can rest their own drinks … after work or any other time.

Led by its title track single, “Drinks After Work” finds the Norman resident with writer credit on nine of 10 tracks, collaborating again with frequent partners Scotty Emerick, Bobby Pinson and Rivers Rutherford. The deluxe version adds “Call A Marine,” “Margaritaville” (featuring Sammy Hagar) and “Chuckie’s Gone.”

The latter is a remembrance of Keith’s bandleader Chuck Goff, who died unexpectedly in February. Goff is also honored in the liner notes, with a note accompanying a full-page photo of the bass player: “This album is dedicated in memory of Chuck Goff, our longtime bandleader-bass player. He will live on forever in our thoughts and in our performances. We miss ya, Shmudlo.”

Look for my new interview with Keith and my review of “Drinks After Work” Friday in The Oklahoman, at NewsOK and here at BAM’s Blog.
