17. He Ain’t Worth Missing (Should’ve Been A Cowboy, 1993)

“It’s music so by its nature it is subjective, however, I personally love Toby Keith because I think he is the personification of everything modern country could and should be. This song in particular is one of my favorites.”

16. Honkytonk U (Honkytonk University, 2005)

“Honkytonk U”, opens with a strong sound and you almost swear its Waylon Jennings and if your southern it makes you feel proud.  Kind of like a shit kicking song at its finest. “Honkytonk U” reveals a depth of songwriting absent from much of the rest of today’s music.”

15. She’s a Hottie (35 Biggest Hits, 2008)

“This song is a great song that you can’t help jammin too.. toby keith is very talented and he always puts out good music. Love it, great to dance to. Very high energy, just like Toby in concert.”

14. Big Blue Note (Honkytonk University, 2005)

“I have loved the song since the first time I heard it. I like the words, music & I listen to it frequently… This is my favorite kind of record, one you need to listen to over and over again before it really starts to grow on you, then eventually reveals it’s genius”

13. Love Me If You Can (Big Dog Daddy, 2007)

“They don’t come with instructions. We “Dads” do the best we can and hope that we don’t get too many things wrong. We stick it out and far too often say “Love Me If You Can”. A good song by a good singer. I am not a huge Toby Keith fan,but respect him and love this song and the lyrics. A song I like for my favorites list.”

12. I’m Just Talkin’ About Tonight (Pull My Chain, 2001)

“Great Song. Toby Keith gets a lot of crap for his political views, but the man can sing some good songs. Had Keith not delivered something so impressive and grandiose before this, perhaps I would be a bit more positive.”

11. Get Drunk and Be Somebody (White Trash with Money, 2006)

“Once upon a time, I loved this song because I thought it was so cute and catchy and bubbly… Get drunk and all of a sudden, you get this huge ego and all, right?  Like a 14-year-old kid knows what it’s like to be drunk, right? The lyrics are dumb, the instrumentals are childish and weak, and Toby’s voice has done much better, so you go into this song expecting him to live up to his potential, and he crashes and burns.  He has been weakening in the past few years……”

10. Red Solo Cup (Clancy’s Tavern, 2011)

“Toby’s most recent publicity stunt was this frat party anthem narrative about those red cups.. he released it with a star-filled video maybe to push album sales and although it is not an official single it makes the country top 40 which is kinda surprising since it doesn’t sound like a radio hit and even mentions something about testicles.. either way it’s a classic! I guess you either join the party and celebrate it’s extreme catchiness and sing along or write it off for its sheer stupidity.”

9. My List (Pull My Chain, 2001)

“My List,” a simple ballad about a man taking time to do things like “go for a walk, say a little prayer, and take a deep breath of mountain air,” adhering to all of life’s little blessings instead of the hustle and bustle of the daily grind.”

8. I Wanna Talk About Me (Pull My Chain, 2001)

“This is one of those songs you gotta get if you are married. He has it nailed, the relationship between man and woman, the quiet – don’t say very much – guy, and the constantly talking woman. Humorous with a catchy tune. Maybe I’ll listen to some more Toby Keith – you never know what I might find.”

7. As Good As I Once Was (Honkytonk University, 2005)

“There’s a part of me that wants to believe that all these country artists write their songs ironically to perpetuate stereotypes of southern USA and mock their audience of hicks/rednecks that eat up such messages. In As Good as I Once Was, Toby Keith pretty plainly normalizes incest in the opening verse. I have to believe he is knowingly playing with a stereotype here, or he just doesn’t give a crap.”

6. How Do You Like Me Now?! (How Do You Like Me Now?!, 1999)

“Music best and lyric has a deep meaning. My number 1 Toby Keith song. Toby Keith sings the best here. Everyone can relate to telling people off who doubted them or treated them poorly.”

5. Beer for My Horses (Unleashed, 2002)

“Toby Keith surprised me. I feel that we will see more of him in movies in the future. He has such a strong on screen presence. I wish we could have seen more of Rodney Carrington’s high level of energy that he is famous for. I enjoyed this story and it flowed well for me”

4. American Soldier (Shock’n Y’all, 2003)

“The only problem with this song is that when your own beautiful young man is over there bursting with honor and glory, and at the same time you know he’s the type of guy who helps with the dishes, well, listening to your words often brought me to tears. But maybe there were times I needed to cry, like when some of of guys are dead on the side of a dusty road in Mosul, and we won’t find out who “pending notification of their families.” There’s so much controversy over Afghanistan and Iraq that most of the media fails to bring the human cost to light”

3. I Love This Bar (Shock’n Y’all, 2003)

“Love the song. Too bad the chain of bars didn’t make it. Seems Toby made some bad management choices and the ones in Houston were deeply in debt. Too bad, because it was a nice concept and fit right in with the song.

2. Should’ve Been a Cowboy (Should’ve Been a Cowboy, 1993)

“A debut single can’t get any better than establishing an artist with an original ditty that goes all to number one. Catchy song with hookful lyrics and some cool one-liners. Nice one!”

1. Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American) (Unleashed, 2002)

” Motivated out of his loss of his father and not even intended for commercial release, this must sum up the feelings of non-comprehension and helplessness of the 9/11 events for many Americans that turned into these angry sentiments.. I wouldn’t say that putting a boot up someone’s ass is the right response and I am indeed critical of some flag waving blockhead Americans, but this song is full of powerful and yes scary images and I can’t help liking it so much. A downright classic because it’s a well written song and an interesting document of its time.”
