Toby Keith says the songs he writes are all about what is going on his life at the time. Well, with that in mind, we guess Toby was probably looking at some form of a cold beverage when he wrote most of the songs for his 16th studio album coming out November 13th. He is calling "Hope on the Rocks." The first single from the CD, "I Like Girls That Drink Beer," is currently climbing the charts.
