Toby Keith Sings ‘Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue’ During Car Karaoke in Throwback Video

When you are in a car that has a karaoke machine with one of your songs on it, you better believe Toby Keith will sing it. Keith gets captured in this pretty humorous video of him sitting in the backseat of an Uber ride. It’s not every day that Keith and a karaoke machine are in the same place.

Well, Keith picked up the microphone while another passenger caught him on video. Keith is singing along with his song Courtesy of the Red, White And Blue (The Angry American). He’s in perfect pitch with the music that accompanies his lyrics.

One might imagine it being a tough task to sing your song with a karaoke-style melody. Anyone who has tried to sing at karaoke bars knows that an original song isn’t usually played. Some companies have put the music to a similar-yet-different style.

It probably wasn’t Keith’s music backing him here. So, it offers a little bit of a challenge to sing along with the music.
