While they may share a beer with their horses, Toby Keith and Willie Nelson keep that infamous plant all for them! Along with the release of his blazing new single “Wacky Tobaccy,” Keith debuted a hilarious new music video for the song about those special green leaves featuring one of the most famous cannabis connoisseurs.
“Wacky Tobaccy is a slogan, a saying that’s been around forever and no one has ever put it in a song,” Keith shared with The Music Universe. “When we were working on it, somebody asked if the saying has ever been written in a song and I said, ‘no, but they will now.’ We recorded it and shot the video in Nashville. We got a cameo from Willie Nelson. We have a long-standing friendship. It’s fortunate that we got him. ‘Wacky Tobaccy’ is written to the screws, and it fits in with what we do every night with the party crowd.”
Having a change of heart since the release of his 2003 hit “I’ll Never Smoke Weed With Willie Again,” Keith invited the legendary country singer to kick back with him and his bandmates on his tour bus. The video kicked off with Keith and the boys jamming out on the bus before Nelson comes stumbling out of the bathroom with a cloud of mysterious smoke erupting behind him.
The country singer wrote “Wacky Tobaccy” with critically acclaimed songwriter and longtime collaborator Scotty Emerick. The fiery single was written in the style Keith’s beloved “bus songs.”
