YMMV: Toby Keith

  • Covered Up: Generally averted since Keith writes about 95% of his material, but it's happened a couple times:
    • "A Little Less Talk and a Lot More Action" was originally recorded by Hank Williams, Jr..
    • He covered Sting's "I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying" as a duet with the original artist. The duet outpeaked Sting's original on the pop charts.
    • A strange zig-zagging came with "I Can't Take You Anywhere". Keith originally recorded the song, but co-writer Scotty Emerick released it as a single two years later. Emerick's version featured a guest vocal from Keith.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: "Red Solo Cup".
  • Signature Song: "Should've Been a Cowboy", "How Do You Like Me Now?!", "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue", "Beer for My Horses", etc.
  • Tear Jerker: "Cryin' for Me (Wayman's Song)", a sincere tribute to basketball player/jazz musician Wayman Tisdale.
