When Toby Keith released his chart-topping Bullets In The Gun album last year, it was immediately recognized as the most diverse of his career and, perhaps, his strongest songwriting effort. This week, Keith’s Show Dog-Universal Music label is releasing to radio the song he regards as the collection’s strongest – “Somewhere Else.”
“My favorite track on the album,” the Oklahoman singer, songwriter and entertainer said of the tune shortly before the album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200. “As a songwriter, it’s really clever, wordy and has a lot of craftsmanship … and I really love those kinds of songs.”
A lively take on the sad-sack life of a solitary soul, Keith described the protagonist as “lonely and cold, eating his cold TV dinner. He’s a Cubs fan, and they lose all the time, too. So he’s the biggest loser in the world. As light as the song is, it’s a serious issue. A very different song for me.” He went on to add, “There won’t be another song on the radio that sounds like it.”
