All Music Guide
Long before Toby Keith rose to fame as the boot-brandishing "Angry American" of post-9/11 country music, the Oklahoma native was a well-regarded performer who regularly appeared on the charts, but hadn't yet gained mainstream superstar status. On this 1996 outing, Keith, backed by his Easy Money Band, offers up a largely romantic set.
