Who'd have thought...

...that I'd like Toby Keith even more, even if it's not particularly as an artist?

Q: What song out right now do you wish you had written?
A: You’re going to stump me on that because every one of my vehicles has satellite radio in them — my motorcycle, my boat, my plane, my cars, my trucks, everything — and they’re all on Roadhouse, which is ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s country. I haven’t listened to modern radio for maybe five or six years, so I have no idea. I haven’t even listened to myself!
 When I got my Sirius radio, The Roadhouse got to be the first preset on it, followed by Outlaw Country and Willie's Place. After that it was off to the pop and rock channels; I didn't even bother with the newer country channels, though they do play good songs on Prime Country now and then. I'd love to know how many other new Nashville singers don't listen to country radio...
