While Toby Keith is gearing up to release his forthcoming album, Drinks After Work, next week, fans can get an early preview on Spotify starting today (October 22).

The album includes “Before We Knew They Were Good,” which Keith told Radio.com about in an interview earlier this year.

“It’s about kids growing up becoming special people in life,” he said. “I always thought my grandmother raised thoroughbred racehorses. Every one of her babies can run. It was like my grandmother and her five grandchildren are just phenomenal. They’re all very successful. My brother is a big Baptist preacher in Florida. My sister is a great business person, she handles my horse farms and merchandise. Both of my cousins are very highly educated; one’s a DNA scientist and the other’s in the medical field.”

He added: “My grandmother was really close to me and a real mentor to me. Watching us five kids run around her house when we were little, the whole idea of this song is like that. ‘They were great before we knew they were good.’ You just never know who’s going to grow up to be what.”

One track that showcases classic Keith is the twangy “Last Living Cowboy.” Complete with harmonica, banjo and honky tonk rhythms, it leaves its mark on the listener.

“’Last Living Cowboy’ is more along the stuff that I normally do,” Keith said. “Talking about this old man that’s in the modern day and he’s still hanging on to the last century values and fashion. It’s comical.”

Drinks After Work, the Oklahoma singer’s 17th studio album, is set for release October 29.
