Toby Keith includes country classics on deluxe version of ‘Bullets in the Gun’

The deluxe version of Toby Keith’s upcoming album, Bullets in the Gun, will include his versions of several country classics recorded in June during a performance at a 1,000-seat concert venue in New York City. The bonus tracks are Johnny Paycheck’s “11 Months and 29 Days,” Waylon Jennings’ “I’ve Been a Long Time Leaving (But I’ll Be a Long Time Gone)” and Roger Miller’s “Chug-a-Lug,” along with Gordon Lightfoot’s “Sundown.” Keith and a band of Nashville session musicians were billed as Incognito Bandito for the informal show at Irving Plaza (also known as the Fillmore New York) prior to the launch of his American Ride tour. Keith wrote or co-wrote all 10 new songs for the album scheduled for release on Oct. 5.

    Seems to me that Toby Keith might have accidently been holding a copy of the lyrics from Robert Earl Keen’s “Road Goes On Forever” in one hand and a Mont Blanc pen in the other when he wrote “Bullets In The Gun.” However, I am sure that any “similarities” are simply coincidental. Next time just do the right thing and cover the song Toby. Everybody knows that you can’t write like Robert anyway.

    Hey Scott, I think i agree… But also its reminiscent of The Highwaymen’s “The Road Goes on Forever”.
