Mustached Man Monday for Movember

Toby Keith USA

The second Keepin’ It Country Mustached Man for Movember is likely the most fitting on a patriotic day. As you all know, Toby Keith is as American as they come and he celebrates his love for his country in many of his smash hit songs.

Since 2002, Keith has made numerous trips to the Middle East to bring entertainment and encouragement to the United States’ men and women serving on, or near, the front lines. “My father was a soldier. He taught his kids to respect veterans,” said Toby. “It’s that respect and the thank you that we have a military that’s in place and ready to defend our nation; our freedom.”

Natalie Maines Releases Her First Solo Single…

natalie-maines-without-you

Ironically titled “Without You” … a song with the same title as a Dixie Chicks song off their album “Fly”. However, Natalie Maines assures that you will be hearing a whole lot less dixie and a whole lot more rocker on her upcoming album. Natalie explains that she wanted to create a definitive separation between Natalie the Dixie Chick and Natalie the solo artist.

Natalie’s album, entitled “Mother”, will hit shelves on May 7th and will include ten (10) tracks, produced by Ben Harper. Of the ten tracks, one (1) will be a Pink Floyd cover, while another is co-written by Natalie’s fellow bandmates, Martie Maguire and Emily Robinson.
