* ArtisticLicenseAnimalCare: Averted. "Beer For My Horses" seems like this, but it actually has a lot of basis in reality. Horse breeders have always given horses beer (Guinness is the preferred brand) as an appetite stimulant. The amount of alcohol in a bottle of Guinness, which is about enough to make a 150-pound man feel pleasantly mellow, will do nothing to a horse which weighs ten times as much and naturally produces huge amounts of enzymes that break down alcohol. The ingredients in beer (grains, hops, yeast and water) are all things a horse will gladly eat on its own, given the chance.

After [=DreamWorks=] records closed in 2005, he seamlessly moved to his own label, Show Dog Records (now part of Show Dog-{{Universal}} Music). Although the hits have slowed some, he's still a fairly consistent presence on the country charts, even returning to the top occasionally without overly significant changes in his style. Keith scored a surprise viral crossover in 2011 when he made a video for "Red Solo Cup", which then dovetailed into radio airplay.

* IdiotBall: Keith's character in the video for "A Little Too Late," wherein he attempts to seal his ex-girlfriend inside a small, walled off room in the basement and leave her for dead ... only to find out he has actually sealed himself in the walled area. (As he tries to apologize in vain, she leaves the basement to call the police.)

A prominent CountryMusic singer, Toby Keith Covel was born July 8, 1961. He started out rather strongly on the Mercury label, sending his debut single "Should've Been a Cowboy" to #1. This song went on to become the most-played country song of the entire 1990s, but Toby proved to be no OneHitWonder. For the rest of the decade, he stayed with Mercury, landing hit after hit with remarkable consistency.

Although he started to slip in the late 1990s, a change to Creator/DreamWorks Records brought him an even bigger hit in "How Do You Like Me Now?!", which started the second leg of his career. For the next five years, almost everything he released topped the charts and saw considerable crossover success. Along the way, he hit big with the controversial "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue (The Angry American)" and the WillieNelson duet "Beer for My Horses". After [=DreamWorks=] records closed in 2005, he seamlessly moved to his own label, Show Dog Records (now part of Show Dog-{{Universal}} Music).

Among his biggest hits in this timespan were several ballads, such as "Wish I Didn't Know Now", "Who's That Man", "Does That Blue Moon Ever Shine on You", and "Me Too", with only "You Ain't Much Fun" hinting at the late 1990s, swagger to come in his later years. Keith then fell victim to ExecutiveMeddling. He had recorded an album for Mercury, but they only liked two tracks, which were both put on a GreatestHitsAlbum. After another album's worth of material was rejected too, he terminated his contract with Mercury in 1999.

A

For the next five years, almost everything he released topped the charts and saw considerable crossover success. It was also at this point that he developed his more macho, swaggering style with edgier material such as the CountryRap "I Wanna Talk About Me" and the playful "Who's Your Daddy?", but the sensitive side never went away either, as seen in "You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This" or "My List".

* {{Bowdlerize}}: Oddly, most radio stations had no issue with him singing the word "ass" in "Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue", but that word ''was'' edited out of "American Ride" (which changed it to "Daddy works his ''can'' off") and muted on both "Red Solo Cup" and "Drunk Americans".

** "Drunk Americans" originally muted "ass" in the line "we don't give a rat's ass" but a later edit changed the first and third instances to "we don't care, we don't ask" and the second to "we don't judge, we don't laugh."
