These days, most artists take a few years between releasing albums. That just ain’t Toby Keith’s style. Ever since taking the country music world by storm with his eponymous 1993 debut, the prolific singer-songwriter has maintained a rigid creative regimen. Like denim-clad clockwork, he writes and compiles songs all year, records them, and then starts all over again. But as his fans will attest, quantity doesn’t lessen quality. Just as avid ears were busy digesting his last number one album, Clancy’s Tavern, containing the runaway smash “Red Solo Cup,” Toby comes back with the fresh refill of his 16th effort, Hope on the Rocks. Rowdy, sudsy, and lean, the record is an accumulation of Toby’s life experiences and a showcase of his craftsmanship. Besides his signature catchy hooks, the album displays a burly vulnerability while still adhering to the Three B’s: beer, barrooms, and more beer.<p>
For this year’s Hammer Down Tour, the multi ACM and CMA winning showman/restaurateur/tequila impresario offers up a set of his newest hits, such as “I Like Girls That Drink Beer,” along with many of his most popular tunes. Presented by his longtime sponsor, the Ford F-Series, Toby’s stage show is Ford tough, yet loaded with humor and razzle-dazzle as the veteran performer blends honky-tonk tearjerkers, patriotic anthems, and odes to fermented hops.<p>

####Kip Moore Juggernauting country star Kip Moore was supposed to be a golfer. His daddy was a golf pro, and he earned a golf scholarship to Georgia’s Valdosta State University. Thankfully for country fans, Kip decided his natural swing was better suited for songwriting. Listeners agreed—his debut album Up All Night shot up the charts with its instantly compelling slices of life. His breakout number one hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” lays out a country music blueprint in twangy, rocking ink with its wistful tale of small town living, beer guzzling, and girls in sundresses. The follow-up hit, “Beer Money,” shows that Moore has the chops to be a southern Springsteen with rousing, escapist lyrics that echo “Born to Run.” In his live show, the charming songsmith shares those hits and other heart-tugging numbers from his debut.
