Toby Keith will take breaks between his tour dates to film his second movie, Beer for My Horses, produced by Toby and CMT Films.
Toby and CMT Films teamed up previously for Toby’s 2006 debut movie, Broken Bridges. The new film is named after Toby’s No. 1 single and will be released to theaters this summer. Beer for My Horses, written by Toby and comedian Rodney Carrington, follows the exploits of small-town deputies and best friends who embark on an outrageous road trip to save one of their girlfriends from drug lord kidnappers. “I’m a writer,” Toby says. “That’s a huge part of what I do. And while most of the time it’s songs, I’ve had a lot of fun with Rodney putting together a screenplay that borrows a title from one of those songs. It’s a gratifying and creative experience, and I’m excited for people to see the end result.” Beer for My Horses also co-stars Rodney Carrington, Willie Nelson, rock legend Ted Nugent and veteran actor Tom Skerritt.
