Red Solo cups are the ultimate party accessory and Toby Keith is including an ode to the plastic party beverage receptacle on his new album, Clancy’s Tavern. While Toby writes most of his own material, “Red Solo Cup” came to him courtesy of Brett and Jim Beavers with Brad and Brett Warren.
“It does everybody the same way it did me,” he said. “They’ll say, ‘That’s the stupidest song in the world and I can’t get it out of my head.’ Sometimes it’s good for the world to hear something like that.”
Toby brought the four writers into the studio to lay down the instrumental tracks and sing background vocals. They also star in song’s video along with a number of Toby’s famous friends. Craig Ferguson, Roger Clemens, Larry Bird, Jimmy Houston, Jeff Dunham (with puppet Bubba J), Carrot Top, Lance Burton, Sammy Hagar, Ted Nugent, Eric Church, Joe Nichols, JT Hodges, Carter’s Chord, Rose Falcon and Trailer Choir’s Butter all have cameos, Solo cups in hand.
