  Toby Keith Talks About His Beer for My Horses Movie

"It was a dream come true," Toby Keith said Thursday 
(June 19) during a press conference in Nashville to 
discuss his upcoming film, Beer for My Horses. The 
movie, which features Willie Nelson, Rodney Carrington, 
Ted Nugent and Gina Gershon, follows Keith's 2006 debut 
film, Broken Bridges. Getting its title from the duet 
Keith recorded with Nelson, the film has been described 
as a "fun-loving road trip movie" involving two small 
town deputies. "Do I think it has the possibility of 
becoming a huge comedy?" Keith said. "Absolutely." In 
addition to starring in the film, Keith also co-wrote 
and produced it. Asked about his film plans beyond Beer 
for My Horses, he said, "It's actually open-ended where, 
if it's as successful as we think it will be, it sets 
itself up for a nice sequel." The soundtrack features 
Keith along with Trailer Choir, Mica Roberts and 
Carter's Chord, all newcomers on his record label, Show 
Dog Nashville. It will also feature music from Nelson, 
David Allan Coe and Mel Tillis, among others. The film 
is scheduled to be released on Aug. 8.
