Dallasites who are busy trying to guess the mystery opening date of Toby Keith’s, ” I Love This Bar & Grill” at the old AMC theater (the former Grand 24 Theater), can pause for their Toby patriotic fix and listen up to his newest country tune, “Made in America” performed on Fox & Friends Friday morning, October 28, 2011.
Toby Keith is a political mystery as well. He is reported to have voted for George W. Bush and backed him when the Dixie Chicks trashed him and America. Then, statements were released saying that Keith was a Democrat who backed Obama. Keith has strongly supported U.S. troops , visiting them in Iraq on 7 different occasions.
According to CMT News, a longtime Democrat, also stood up for Sarah Palin, saying in 2008 that he was re-registering as an independent.
“My party that I’ve been affiliated with all these years doesn’t stand for anything that I stand for anymore,” he reports. “They’ve lost any sensibility that they had, and they’ve allowed all the kooks in. So I’m going independent.
“It’s just like this: If I was a strong supporter of Obama and Biden … the kooks in the Democratic party — this extreme left — are hammering Palin so bad, that they’re gonna cause John McCain to win this thing,” he said.
Keith said he will probably vote for McCain because Palin is his running mate.
Made in America’ is from the superstar’s brand-new album ‘Clancy’s Tavern.’ Watch the video on the sidebar on the left.
