Toby Keith Is Giving Up Acting
Toby Keith seems to be thinking that you just can’t do it all. He has made appearances in the movies ‘Beer for My Horses’ and ‘Broken Bridges,’ but Toby says he’s giving up acting towel for good even though he liked it a lot.
Toby told the Country Vibe “When I did the movies, it affected my song writing,” and went on to say “I think I had quality songs and we had hits and stuff but it affected my day-to-day, my system, my routine and the volume of songs that I bring to the table when I record an album.”
“I got little or no bang,” he says. “You know songs get heard on the radio forever, but movies are like here and then they’re gone. They’re not re-currents. You heard the song today and then you hear it tomorrow and then 10 years from now you’ll still hear it every once in a while, but you’ll hear it more than you’ll see that movie replay. There’s just not enough bang for my buck to waste that much time into a project.”
“I proved to myself I could do it, proved to myself I could write a screenplay, proved to myself that I could act and be in a movie with the Burt Reynolds and Kelly Prestons and people like that of the world, Tess Harpers and hold my own,” he says. “And it was like, ‘Alright, I done that. Now what did I get out of that?’ Other than the experience, we’re good.”
