Clancy's Tavern review - Toby Keith

Posted on

TAMER 'TAVERN' The rabble-rousing country strikes a quieter note on the album's better tracks

Clancy's Tavern

type:
Music
Current Status:
In Season
performer:
Toby Keith
music label:
11324
genre:
Country

We gave it a B+

The loud-and-proud Nashville star digs into politics once again on lead single ”Made in America,” which laments the sight of ”foreign cars filled with fuel that isn’t ours.” (Later, ”Red Solo Cup” flies its flag for Margaritaville.) Yet much of Clancy’s Tavern — named after a bar Keith’s grandmother once ran — strikes a quieter, more intimate note: ”South of You” is a gentleman’s kiss-off, while the lovely ”Just Another Sundown” could almost pass for James Taylor. B+
