There’s a reason you don’t see much of Toby Keith on certain red carpets. It isn’t because he isn’t worthy of accolades, he just doesn’t find the awards show circuit worth his time.
During a recent radio interview with Taste of Country Nights, Keith explained his reasoning, “I think in three years I had 24 nominations. I was 0 for 24 and I went, ‘I can’t beat the politics of this deal. I was a No.1 ticket seller, a No. 1 album seller and I spent 51 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard in a four-year span and I went 0 for 24? I was like, ‘This isn’t worth my time.’”
Keith just released his 18th studio LP, 35 mph Town, which will not be featured on the upcoming CMA Awards.
