But that’s what Toby Keith’s country-rocking “Beers Ago” attempts, and it is now the new CountryBreakout Chart No. 1 Song following his co-hosting role and performance on the CMT Music Awards. The tune, which Toby wrote with Bobby Pinson, uses beers consumed as a measurement of time to pinpoint some fond memories of reckless youth. It’s kind of like “Seasons of Love” from the Broadway show Rent, but with Skoal. See the CMT Awards performance here.
Toby is currently on the road with his Live in Overdrive Tour presented by Ford F-Series, which hits Salt Lake City, Denver, and Albuquerque next week. More info and tickets here.
