During 2020, Toby Keith kept his fans entertained by sharing a series of cover videos from where he was staying in Mexico. He called these videos the “Furniture Store Guitar Sessions,” because the guitar he was playing came from a furniture store in Mexico. He bought the guitar because he left his own instrument back home in the U.S.
Keith covered songs by artists such as Jamie O’Neal, Eddie Rabbitt, and Johnny Rodriguez. He also honored artists who passed away during that time, such as Kenny Rogers and The Statler Brothers’ Harold Reid.
During these sessions, Keith also shared performances of some of his own, lesser-known songs. He brought back tunes that didn’t get a lot of attention in the past, or ones that he thought should have been released as singles.
Keith was surely feeling nostalgic during this time, as he had just released a new Greatest Hits album in 2019. Titled Greatest Hits: The Show Dog Years, the compilation featured some of Keith’s more recent hits, including “Red Solo Cup,” “Don’t Let The Old Man In,” and “God Love Her.” The album also included his then-new single “That’s Country Bro,” in which he name drops dozens of country artists and other figures connected to the country music world.
Since releasing The Show Dogs Year, Keith has released one additional new song. Titled “What’s Up Cuz,” the song was released in early 2020.
It’s now been a year since fans have heard any new music from Keith, and they’re getting anxious. Thankfully, they may not have to wait much longer on some new tunes.
On Monday (January 4), Keith’s team posted a picture on social media that shows the singer in a recording studio. The picture was captioned “Who’s excited to hear that Toby has been back in the studio?!”
