Beyond his now very prominent role as Citizen Toby Keith, the release of Greatest Hits 2
is also a reminder of his presence as one of popular music's premier entertainers. Underplayed facets of his talent--his humor, his romanticism, his gift for telling stories--reassert themselves in this music. The collection's three new recordings bring these traits to the fore--the keenly-observed "Stays In Mexico," which was Toby’s highest debuting single ever, the pure fun and family harmony on "Mockingbird," a duet with his teenage daughter Krystal, and the wryly honest portrait of lifelong devotion culled from a conversation with his late father in "Go With Her." And in a nod to those early songs and the fans that sing along to them every night, he's added live versions of "You Ain't Much Fun" and "Should’ve Been A Cowboy."
