But it looks like it’s happening. Toby recently released the track list for his upcoming album, Peso In My Pocket, and tucked in there amongst the new songs is a cover of John Prine’s “Take a Look At My Heart.”
The song, which Prine co-wrote with John Mellencamp, was featured on Prine’s 1991 album The Missing Years and included Bruce Springsteen on the guitar and backing vocals.
Toby’s album will also feature a song that he co-wrote with rocker and former member of Van Halen, Sammy Hagar, called “Growing Up Is a Bitch.” And there’s also a track on there written by Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd.
It’s been awhile since I’ve really been into Toby Keith’s music but I’ve gotta admit, this one has my attention – especially that John Prine cover.
