Toby Keith taps his Irish roots (and a keg or two) for inspiration

Toby Keith discusses the inspiration for the title song of his newest release, Clancy's Tavern over at Taste of Country. Toby explains, "First of all, that story is true. It’s influenced by my grandmother’s tavern that I was raised in. But I played Ireland here about two years ago for the first time, and [at] the end of the trip it was like, I started kind of getting a desire to wanna listen to some old Irish folk songs." Toby may have found additional inspiration for the CD from Ireland's other claim to fame, provided it was served in a red solo cup.
