Toby Keith fans worried about losing their solo cups don’t need to worry – they can proceed to party. Although Toby Keith admits he never called Solo to ask permission about using their products, he’s offering no apologies for the single. In an interview with Elvis Duran of Z100 in New York about Toby’s party anthem in “Red Solo Cup” becoming so huge, Toby admitted:
“My manager goes, should we call the Solo Cup people before we put this out? I said, no, it’s easier to apologize than it is to ask for permission.”
Looks like Solo wasn’t so impressed with the single at first. Toby continues:
“The company had a problem with the song for about a week, and then they came around and said ok and then they apologized and now they’re on our side.”
I can’t imagine that the company would have much a problem now. The song went viral almost overnight, becoming a single from Toby’s “Clancy’s Tavern” album, and even finding a spot on Glee!
In other Toby news, he’s announced plans to play an army tour show at Fort McCoy. Opening acts and ticket details will be announced as the date gets closer, but the show will take place on August 2nd. Ticket on-sale date will be announced soon, but camping details have been released to the Army Concert Tour website.
