Toby Keith is planning to release a deluxe edition of his new album when it comes out Oct. 5 via his label Show Dog-Universal Music. The special edition of Bullets In The Gun will have four live tracks which were recorded during his surprise “Incognito Bandito” show at The Fillmore in Manhattan. It is available for pre-order here.
Backed by an A-list band of session players assembled exclusively for the rare club performance, Keith’s set and bonus tracks include: Johnny Paycheck’s “11 Months And 29 Days,” Waylon Jennings’ “I’ve Been A Long Time Leaving (But I’ll Be A Long Time Gone),” Roger Miller’s “Chug-A-Lug” and Gordon Lightfoot’s “Sundown.”
Keith produced the album, joined by Mills Logan and Kenny Greenberg for the live session. He also wrote or co-wrote all 10 new songs, including six with Bobby Pinson, one with Scotty Emerick and Dean Dillon, and the title track with Rivers Rutherford. Keith also wrote two songs by himself, including the lead single “Trailerhood,” which is moving quickly to the top of the charts.
On the eve of his fifteenth studio album, Keith’s track record of success dates back to his first single and No. 1 smash, “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” in 1993.
His American Ride Tour, presented by Ford F-Series (it is his eighth consecutive year as the “Ford Truck Man”), continues to play for standing-room-only arenas and will reach more fans this year than it did in 2009.
