Sunday, May 04, 2008Fan of Toby Keith? Well, May 6th you are in for a real treat. Toby Keith's "35 Biggest Hits" makes its way to store shelves. This is a 2 CD set that has 35 tracks, one of those being is current single "She's A Hottie." The other 34 takes you through Keith's career of hits chronologically.
One of the most interesting things is that from the first track you get a chance to listen to one of country music's talents evolve. For the positive or negative, country music has changed so very much since 1993 when Toby Keith's first #1 hit, Should've Been A Cowboy." Keith is one of the few artists that have been able to keep up with those changes and keep his music contemporary with the trends, yet at the same time stick his own personal style.
If you are fairly new to country music, this is an album for you, no doubt. It is the best way to get caught up on Toby Keith's music without buying his entire collection of albums. The album cover includes a listing of each track and what album it appeared on. If you hear a couple songs that you like from the same album, I highly suggest you pick up that one and dig deeper into that particular album. Greatest Hits packages setup this way are excellent for this type of further exploration of an artist. I always l tell people that the "hit" from the album isn't always the best song on an album.
If you have been a fan of Toby Keith from the beginning, this album is for you as well. First, you get one new song, "She's A Hottie," plus you also get a 2 CD set that has all those hits you dig through your collection to hear in one place.
It isn't often that we get such a complete package of greatest hits. I compare it to Alan Jackson's first greatest hits package, and I have a feeling like Jackson, Keith will have a second greatest hits package one day as well.
