Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup” is officially the second single from his new album, Clancy’s Tavern. The video for the song, which features several of Toby’s famous friends including Eric Church, Joe Nichols and JT Hodges, became a viral sensation even before the album debuted. Radio stations pulled audio straight from the video and began playing it, leading Toby’s label to make the decision to release it as a single.
The first single from Clancy’s Tavern, “Made In America,” was a No. 1 hit, but “Red Solo Cup” has a head start on reaching the top spot. The song is already the No. 1 most downloaded country song and the video has surpassed 4 million web views. As it becomes an official single, “Red Solo Cup” is already being played on three-fourths of reporting country radio stations.
“Red Solo Cup” is gaining momentum in pop culture as well. FOX’s Glee will feature the song on its December 6 episode and the track has been used as a music bed in spots for Tim Allen’s new sitcom, Last Man Standing. The song is so popular with Toby’s fans that he has even had to play it twice at some shows to satisfy them.
