TOBY KEITH NOMINATED FOR THREE ACM AWARDS
"Red Solo Cup" Continues To Grow; Drives Album Back To No. 1
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year Toby Keith has received three nominations for the 47th Annual ACM Awards, scheduled for April 1 in Las Vegas. All three are for his explosive new song "Red Solo Cup" - Video of the Year and twice for Single Record of the Year as the song's artist and producer.
The nominations continue the unparalleled success of "Red Solo Cup," which almost instantaneously became the biggest viral sensation in country music history. The videos for the song (holiday version and original flavor) have surpassed the 11 million views mark. At radio, the single is already in the top 10 and climbing. And this week the single is No. 1 on the country download chart.
Even more remarkable, the single's success has pushed Keith's current album Clancy's Tavern back to the No. 1 country album pinnacle. Tavern debuted at No. 1 in October and has spent the majority of the intervening weeks in the top 5. "Red Solo Cup" is also the No. 1 most-played song on jukeboxes, with Toby Keith ranking as the No. 1 most-played artist. Both are all-genre standings as reported by TouchTunes.
Catalog sales of Keith's music hit a record 3.3 million downloads in 2011, with RSC leading the way to become the best-selling single download of his career.
In other Toby news, the Chicago Tribune recently named him the No. 1 spokesman for full-size trucks. Keith's tours have been sponsored by Ford F-Series since 2003, and the Tribune notes: "Toby looks like a truck owner, acts like a truck owner and looks comfortable talking with truck owners."
