In this episode of Children of Song, we find out what it was like growing up with country superstar Toby Keith. According to Krystal, he was just one heck of a Dad. A chip off the old block, Krystal brings plenty of personality and a ton of talent as she tries to burst onto the country music scene.
In this segment, we find out Toby Keith gave the music industry the “middle finger” after he visited Nashville as a young singer and music executives told him he wasn’t good enough. Krystal clears up that 5 of those 10 songs that he played back then for Nashville insiders went on to become big, big hits.
As a result, Krystal has grown up knowing she’ll have to earn everything that comes her way in the music business. Krystal talks about other early influences including Patsy Cline and even sings a little of her legendary Crazy. She also sings excerpts of her Daddy’s Should Have Been a Cowboy as well as her own Daddy Dance with Me.
Robert K. Oermann hosts this entertaining episode with the series producer Brad Newman by his side.
