From his first No. 1 hit, Should've Been A Cowboy, to his latest album Hope On The Rocks, Toby Keith has been one of the most consistent self-directed musicians of his era. The lead single, Made In America, from Keith's previous collection, Clancy's Tavern, topped the charts as one of his fastest rising songs in a long line of chart burners. The album's second hit, Red Solo Cup, has become the most commercially successful country single in recent memory with a viral video that amassed more than 20 million views.

At the core of Keith's unparalleled success is his songwriting. The Nashville Songwriters Association International has honored him with its Songwriter/Artist of the Decade distinction. Keith is also a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year and was named the American Country Awards' Artist of the Decade.
